    Custom Camera profiles for which process? 

    Import?

    Tethering?

    The camera profile can be selected before or after the images are in capture one so your question doesn’t make sense to me. I document art and every time I make a new custom camera icc profile for the set up, then upgrade C1, I have to move the custom profiles from deep in the old app package to the new one.

    Ah, I thought you were talking about specific use of the profiles.

    I based my reply on my own experiences with saving revised Base Characteristics settings, including some amended profiles, as Presets. 

    The Presets seem to travel from update to update with no problem, though in some rare instances I think changes to the processing engine may suggest revisions to the profiles. But that is not what you are asking about.

    I use Windows but I suspect you may be a Mac user. 

    My update process on Windows seems to be happy to deal with all of the User Data information. 

    I have no experience of Macs since the late 1990s (and very little then) but it may be that the update process somehow misses the bespoke profiles.

    No matter which hardware you use, does all of your other User specific information carry forward successfully?

    Thanks for the response. Yes I’m using a mac. The profiles I’m making are done through an X-Rite app rather than using the colour editor. The instructions here will clarify my current situation https://support.captureone.com/hc/en-us/articles/360002409057-How-do-I-install-and-import-my-own-color-profiles The reminder about the colour editor sourced ICC profiles though means that there may be another way as I’d assume that those profiles would be stored in a user preset directory rather than within the app structure itself. I’ll investigate later on when I’m back at my desktop.

    Ah, OK, looks like the problem will be that the path to the System based files includes the C1 version name as part of the installation of the included profiles (which in itself is sensible) and so does not carry forward previous contents. 

    In that case the simplest conceptual solution would be to keep the profiles somewhere easily accessible and re-import them (as required?)  after an update that involves the creation of a new path. 

    However, if the User data storage solution can be employed you should be able to avoid that inconvenience.

    Yep, fingers crossed. Or I continue with the insane system!

    Save profiles inside:

    /Users/"user name"/Library/ColorSync/Profiles

    Capture One will find them automatically. Also my advice is to switch Camera Calibration software with something more sophisticated like BasicColor. Difference in profile quality is staggering.

    Thanks Łucasz. I’ve used basiccolor before. I’ll try a side by side comparison of the profiles I have with some art doc I’m doing tomorrow.

    Another option is to pack reference photo you used to create ICC(with profile applied) to EIP. This way profile will be embedded into EIP package. You could archive this way all final images as well. Although I prefer not to. I only pack ICC and LCC reference files so profiles won’t get lost.

    Thank you. And Yes. These methods of creating profiles are indeed chalk and cheese. Adding the profile to the folder you stated worked too. I wonder why C1 say to place it within the app structure.
