Installing and Using Printer Profiles
workshop will explain how to install and use your custom print profiles.
Step 1: If you have Photoshop open on your computer, close it down before you continue with this workshop.
Step 2: If you have received your print profile by email, firstly you need to save the ICC Profile attachment to a convenient location on your computer, where you will be able to locate it later in this workshop. If you have collected your print profile on a key/pen drive you will also need to transfer the ICC profile from your key/pen drive to a convenient location on your computer, where you will be able to locate it later in this workshop. For the purpose of this workshop my ICC profile name is “NCC001_R2400_Epson_Fuji_Prem_Gloss” (your profile name will differ slightly, but will start with the “NCC” prefix) which I have saved to a “Temporary Files” folder within “My Documents”.
3: Open up “Windows Explorer”. A quick way of doing this is
to click the right hand mouse button on the “Start” button
in the bottom left hand corner of your computer screen. In the flyout
menu box, left click on “Explore”. Now you are in the “Windows
Explorer” section of your computer. You now need to locate the ICC
profile you have just saved from email or transfer from a key/pen drive.
My profile is located in a “Temporary Files” folder within
4: Next we need to install the ICC profile. To do this, click your right
hand mouse button on the ICC profile name within Windows explorer. This
will open up a flyout menu box. At the top of the menu box you will see
5: With your left hand mouse button click on “Install Profile”.
This will automatically install the ICC profile into the correct location
on your computer. If no warning or failed install messages appear after
clicking “Install Profile”, your profile has been installed
correctly and will be made available to use for printing within Photoshop.
When we printed the target profile it was printed as a portrait. If you
are printing landscape images I would recommend that you rotate the image
into a portrait before printing, by going to Image/Rotate Canvas>90
CW. This will save a lot of confusion when using the custom settings.
