    Oh, and by the way, this forum does not work under safari. (only Firefox)

    I can't log in. I get :

    {"message":"invalid json response body at https://app-co-myaccountspaclientbff-we-live.azurewebsites.net/api/v1/Sso/GetZendeskSsoUrl?redirectUrl=https%3A%2F%2Fsupport.captureone.com%2Fhc%2Fen-us%2Fcommunity%2Fposts%2F360014521078-Bug-in-changing-default-icc-profile reason: Unexpected end of JSON input"}

    Found a work around :

    I put my customized profile inside C1 app Package, together with C1 defaults profiles.

    /Applications/Capture\ One\ 20.app/Contents/Frameworks/AppCore.framework/Versions/A/Resources/Profiles/Input/CanonEOS7DMk2-Home.icc

    Obviously a hideous workaround as it can be wiped off with any software upgrade. But at least it works.

    Hugues,

    For the Forum login problem = I get the same thing using Firefox on Windows 7.

    I was advised that MS Edge on Windows 10 would be OK.

    It is not. Same message once every 24 hours.

    I have used the "Submit a request" option and created a followup Technical Support case since the first one was closed after the "use Edge" suggestion. It seems that attempts to update and existing and not expired login related cookie are causing the problem. Delete the cookie and login works as required.

    If would probably help if you could also create a support case.

    I did what you suggested and login works again. Thanks. Will submit a request if it happens again.

    Hugues,

    I'm not familiar with the way Macs handle this but in Windows user generated icc profiles seem to be stored in ..../AppData/Local/Capture One/Colour Profiles .

    Presumably there is an equivalent for Mac but from what little I know and have read I'm not convinced it would be ColorSync. However I could be completely wrong - this is just a suggestion for something to investigate.

    Thanks.

    Actually I did check if there were some app data in what used to be the Mac equivalent of AppData, namely /Library/Application Support, and found nothing.

    On second thought with your message I checked in ~/Library/Application Support, which is the part for the apps that are specific to a user on the machine. There used to be very few, but it seems that with the new OS, at least Catalina, they are duplicated for every Mac User.

    And indeed there is a /Capture One folder there.

    However there are no Colour Profiles folder inside, nor anything similar.

    I did try to create one and move my profiles there but it did not work, (always the same "impossible to load" error) and I also lost the access to the profiles that were before in ~/Library/ColorSync/Profiles/ 

    So I 'm back to my solution for the time being.

    I quickly checked the steps of saving an icc profile from revised colour editor settings (using V20)  and the resulting file appeared in the Color Profiles folder and could be selected as a preset (as I was in haste I did not go to seek something to import and test that part of the process.)

    I'm battling the screen of a new laptop at the moment - the reds are extremely vibrant and I have not yet found a way to tone them down via supplied colour management routines. I makes it easy to see the effects of re-defining the reds in a Colour Editor generated profile but may not be very useful for producing sensibly colour managed output! At the moment the red and pink colour tags look to be exactly the same colour.

     

    Probably "good for instagram".

    Indeed (see my point B above). The problem is trying to use it as a default for future pics.

    I suppose so. I created my customized camera profile before C1 could allow to do it from Color Editor, so I haven't tried it.

    However, to create my own profile I used a dedicated software (Lumariver) and the process I followed was quite complex, involving shooting color references and a lot of tweaking, so I don't believe you can do it seriously purely with C1.

    Calibrating a screen is usually easier, but it is also limited by the capabilities of the screen. A laptop is not particularly built to be true to colours.

    It should be possible to set it as the default for a specific camera and have it applied by default to new images shot with that camera.  The icc should be loaded as the Profile in the Base Characteristics for one image and then set as the default by the option provided for that tool.

    An alternative, if for some reason it is not always desirable to have the same profile, would be to treat it as a preset and load the preset during import routines.

    However you create it C1 needs to be able to take the settings and apply them as an ICC profile so although it may not be as easy as using a specialist application it must be possible to store the results.

     

    My screen in interesting in that it actually has built in colour adjustment tools, one of which uses an i1 calibration device. I have one of those but the only model supported is not the one I have.

    My older notebook was not suited for any form of profiling as far as I was concerned but delivered generally good results for my purposes. This one looks like it could probably do more but needs taming. 

     

    I shall seek the appropriate drivers for my existing i1 and see where that leads.

    Yes, It should be possible. But it is not. That's the bug I have on my machine. I can't set as default a working profile if the given profile is not located inside the app container. Maybe a file privilege problem.
