Different Profiles for your Monitor
In reply to camerashy, Mar 29, 2013

Sorry, Having a bad day today (Senior Moments etc) for some reason the titles were created when I just pressed either Enter or Delete and not Post - very strange.......can you not Edit your tile or posts??

now to my question -- I keep seeing reference to having different monitor profiles for different light situations

When ColorMunki creates a monitor profile is there a way of keeping that particular profile rather than overriding the previous version and where are these profiles stored please.

Thanks

Dave

I don't have a ColorMunki, but my i1Pro along with the i1Match software, always gives a unique name to the profile it creates.  By default, it includes the date in the file name, however you can name the profile anything you wish.

If you're running a Windows system, the profiles are stored in the following location:

Windows\System32\Spool\Drivers\Color

Thanks, Bob, but are they not your paper profiles..

I was looking at how you create various monitor profiles based on different lighting conditions and where CM stores them.....yes, using Windows 7

thanks

Bob, you can create as many Monitor Profiles with the CM as you want by giving then unique names when you save them at the end of the calibration process. I name them after each of my kids!

I told you where the profiles are stored in my last reply to you.  All the profiles (monitor, printer, and color spaces) are stored in the same folder.

You can also get to them through Control Panel > Classic View > Color Management. In there you will have three tabs. The Devices tab allows you to see the profiles associated with any particular device (printer, monitor, etc), the All Profiles tab will show you all your profiles, including profiles added to your system, but not associated with a particular device, which includes printer profiles that were not loaded when the printer was installed.

Thanks Brian, I'm slowly getting there and the World is looking much clearer to me.

So am I right in thinking that to change the monitor profile I go into the devices tab and set which ever profile I choose to the default one.

Thanks

Dave
