Hello Everyone.


I have down loaded from the Permajet print paper manufacturer web site a whole bunch of ICC profiles for printing.

Problem:  All of the downloaded profiles have the suffix .icm  -  but Affinity Photo searches for profiles with a .icc suffix.

So.  Are the icm profiles compatible with Affinity and how do I change the search to include icm profiles?

All help and advice gratefully received.

Thank you.

Hi bigjohndf

Have you installed them into the default location with the OS? Usually right clicking and selecting Install, should resolve the issue. Once installed they can then be used by apps installed in the OS.

FWIW, icc & icm are just different extensions used for the same type of file. See for example this web page.

Affinity Photo 1.7.3, Affinity Designer 1.7.3, Affinity Publisher 1.7.3; macOS High Sierra 10.13.6 iMac (27-inch, Late 2012); 2.9GHz i5 CPU; NVIDIA GeForce GTX 660M; 8GB RAM
Affinity Photo & Affinity Designer for iPad; 6th Generation iPad 32 GB; Apple Pencil; iPadOS 13.1.2

Thanks all for replying.

Lee  -  I installed them into a private directory and searched in there.  I will try and install into the official OS directory - but I am not an expert on OS matters.  Give me end-user software and I can run with it - but the OS side remains a bit of a minefield for me.

I will let you know how I get on.

Best wishes.
