+Print-Safe - Add your own ICC printer profiles

Question: Is there a way to add my own printer profiles created with ColorMunki to the 'Print-Safe' menu in ColorMunki Design / Photo ColorPicker, so that I can verify, whether my colors palettes are within the color gamut of my printer?

Answer: an automated way to add your own printer profiles created with ColorMunki to the 'Print-Safe' menu is still not implemented but is planned for a future version. There is a way of adding them manually:
 

On the Mac platform Design and Photo

  • Quit the Color Picker application

  • Create a new folder on the desktop named “DeviceProfiles”

  • Copy the profiles you wish to appear in PrintSafe into this folder

  • Drag “DeviceProfiles” into HD/Library/Application Support/Colormunki. (You will have to provide Administrator credentials to do this as this folder is Read Only)

  • Relaunch Color Picker and your profiles should appear within PrintSafe™

On the Windows platform - ColorMunki Design

  • Quit the ColorPicker application

  • Copy your profiles into C:/Program Files/X-Rite/ColorMunki Design/Resources/Profiles/Soft Proofing

  • Relaunch Color Picker and your profiles should appear within PrintSafe™
     

On the Windows platform - ColorMunki Photo

  • Quit the ColorPicker application

  • Copy your profiles into C:/Program Files/X-Rite/ColorMunki Photo/Resources/Profiles/Soft Proofing

  • Relaunch Color Picker and your profiles should appear within PrintSafe™
