I recently re-installed aperture after reformatting my hard drive. I need to copy my icc profiles from my previous version to my newly installed version. Can you tell me where these ICC profiles are stored in aperture so I can bring them over to my current version.

Thanks in advance

    Your private color profiles should be stored in your user library:

     

    ~/Libray/ColorSync/Profiles/

     

    Profiles installed for all users are in the systemwide Library folder

    /Library/ColorSync/Profiles

     

     

    As you probably know, your User Library is hidden since Mac OS X Lion.

    You can reveal it from the Finder's "Go" menu in the main menu bar:

     

    Finder > Go

     

    Then hold down to options-key ⌥, until Library appears in the drop-down menu. Select it and open the Library. Then look for the folder ColorSync/Profiles

     

    Regards

    They are not stored in Aperture they are part of the system

     

    /System/Library/ColorSync/Profiles

     

    and

     

    ~/Library/ColorSync/Profiles/

     

    To get to that last one triple click the line to select it, right click to bring up the menu and choose Services->Open
