[EN] Install profile

1. How to find out which profile is required

Open www.duon-portal.de. Click on the top left header „DUON-Info“ and then enter the name of the magazine you are looking for in the search box. If in doubt write less of the name because if your search request deviates in spelling from the actual spelling the search won’t yield any results. Click on „Start search“ and then select the required magazine by double clicking on it in the search result box (certified titles are displayed in green, non certified titles in black).

Certified titles have different headers and one of them is „Profile“. Click on it and you will find the necessary profiles displayed on the right hand side. Please pay attention to the placement „Cover pages“ and „Inner pages“ in case they differ.

2. Unpack your profile

The profile is contained in a *.zip file. Unpack it with a corresponding tool like WinZip.

3. Install profile


Copy the *.icc file into one of the following folders:

  • /System/Library/ColorSync/Profiles/
  • /Library/ColorSync/Profiles/
  • /Library/Application Support/Adobe/Color/Profiles/

You need to be an administrator of the computer in order to copy the files there. If you don’t have the rights of the administrator you may also copy the files in a private folder. In certain cases you need to create the folder manually /libray/colorSync/Profiles.
