    Question Where to Obtain ICC Profiles (CMYK)


    Does anyone know where I can obtain some good ICC profiles? I need CMYK profiles, please!

    I don't even care what CMYK profiles they are... as long as they are standard ones, not custom.

    I am converting a bunch of images using ImageMagick... the profiles I have not are not working. When I went to Adobe's website and hit "Agree" to the license, it brought me to some page to buy/download trials of their software.

    These are RGB (TIFs and JPGs) made in GIMP. Here is the command I am using... maybe I am doing something wrong. The images are created in the cmyk folder but they are still RGB:
    Code:
    imageName.tif -profile /usr/share/color/icc/ISOuncoated.icc cmyk/imageName.tif
    UPDATE: Just looked at the URL that Adobe brought me to, after accepting the license agreement....
    Code:
    http://www.adobe.com/downloads/?notFoundID=null

    I believe they should be extracted to /usr/share/color/icc.

    EDIT: This may be of interest to you as well.

    Thumbs up

    Thanks. I wasn't sure if I should use the Mac files or not. Also, I decided to try a simple search (should have tried it first, like normal) and found that there is a package out there for some profiles.

    All I had to do was aptitude install icc-profiles. Those were the ones I already had installed so, I actually re-installed them using aptitude... However, I am downloading the Mac ICCs now and will post how it goes, using them.

    Thanks for the Argyll link. I will look at that when I get a chance... for now, I am off to continue working on the catalog that needs to be printed!

    I appreciate the help! Have a good day!

    Those Adobe ICC files did not work either. If anyone notices something wrong with the command I am using please say. In my first post, was a simple version of the command I am using... here is what I am using, most of the time:
    Code:
    for img in `ls *.tif`; do convert $img -profile /usr/share/color/icc/a-cmyk-profile.icc cmyk/$img; done;
    This produces files in my cmyk directory but they are still RGB.
