AuthorSubject: Installing Color Setting File (CSF)   [Go to Bottom of Page]
Paula Lerner
Posted on Tue May 11, 2004 10:40 AM

Hi all:

I am in the middle of finalizing an ad for a sourcebook, and one of the images I'm using is a digital file shot from a digital camera. In order to tweak the final CMYK file before delivery, I downloaded the printer's color settings file (CSF) from Black Book's web site, as per their instructions. The installation instructions they had, however, seem to be only applicable for OS 9, not OS X which I'm currently using. Black Book's instructions say after the CSF is downloaded, go to System > ColorSync Profile and drag the CSF file into this folder. Their printer is in Italy and the file is <mondaori 370 uca30.csf>.

To find the ColorSync folder in OS X, I went to to Hard Disk > System > Library > ColorSync > Profiles. I noticed that the items in there were not .csf files, but were rather (mostly generic) .icc profiles. I figured I must be trying to put this profile in the wrong place, but don't know where to go to look for the right one. I did drag the file into this folder, but it doesn't show up as an option when choosing a CMYK setting in CS Color Settings.

So my question: in order to load the printer's flavor of CMYK and access it in CS, where do I go in OS X (or in Photoshop) to upload this thing properly? All I want to do is softproof my file so that I can check what the color is supposed to look like when this printer deals with it. I need to output an Iris print as a guide so they know what I want the color to look like.

Many thanks for any input.

Best,

Paula Lerner
