[KNOWN ISSUE] ICC profiles missing from Affinity after updating to macOS Big Sur

Recommended Posts

After updating to macOS Big Sur you may notice that ICC profiles stored in ~/Library/ColorSync/Profiles/ are no longer available in Affinity apps. This issue has been logged with our developers.

Please Note: If you're using Affinity Photo you can use File > Import ICC Profile to import your ICC profile into the app.

If you're using Affinity Designer or Affinity Publisher, you can manually add these profiles into the app through finder.

Please navigate to the below location, depending on app and install source -

  • Affinity Store version
    • Affinity Designer: ~/Library/Application Support/Affinity Designer/profiles/
    • Affinity Publisher: ~/Library/Application Support/Affinity Publisher/profiles/
  • Mac App Store version ( Big Sur ) :
    • Affinity Designer: ~/Library/Containers/Affinity Designer/Data/Library/Application Support/profiles/
    • Affinity Publisher: ~/Library/Containers/Affinity Publisher/Data/Library/Application Support/profiles/

Once added to this location, restart the Affinity app and you should find the profiles available.
