To install a color profile


In My Computer, usually in the systemroot\System32\Spool\Drivers\Color folder, locate the color profile you want to install.


Right-click the profile, and then click Install Profile.

The file icon will change from a gray color to a white color.


Color profiles communicate the color characteristics of a device to the color management system. Associating the correct color profile with all of your publishing tools helps to ensure consistent color application throughout the publishing process.

Installing a profile modifies the registry and makes it available to the color management system.
