    Hi guys, could someone more clever than me suggest where I am going wrong please :doh:

    I'm trying to install the bottom profile here:

    http://www.keynshamphoto.co.uk/about/colour.profiles

    I've tried extracting the file and putting it in the folder manually and also right clicking the extracted file on the desktop and it puts it in the right place, but when I go into my PS CC and go to look for it, alas its not there :(

    Any thoughts would be gratefully appreciated

    As it is a printer profile, does it appear in the printer dialogue when you print?

    That is all you need. You only use printer profiles when printing.

    In your first post, you said you had gone to look for the profile. Have you tried the Edit/Convert to profile that the printing company tells you to do? That is where you should find the profile.

    Your initial post was not clear on what you were trying to do.

    I just send my files to the printers as sRGB. They convert to whatever profile they are using themselves.

    That is what I would expect, Roger, but the printer in question says they need the image converted to their profile as their printer will not read the sRGB or AdobeRGB profiles.

    In that case, I would be switching printers to someone who knows what they are doing. ;)

    Apologies, basically I want to get a few of my photos printed.

    I tried a print with this company and it came back very dark. I've sent a few to photobox and they have come back fine/ maybe a little bright (not sure if they check them after printing) I didn't know about printer profiles back then, I just want what I send to be printed to look as close as possible to how I've edited it in the pc.

    I have calibrated my monitors with a Spyder 5 Elite, and what I see on my monitor is a similar level to what I see on my D7100 screen.

    I found the instructions for converting to the Fuji 570 printer fairly clear. This commercial printer is a bit old but if well maintained should produce excellent images. However, like @Roger S I probably would look for a printer that handled sRGB files rather than requiring that I convert to that profile.
