I have created an ICC profile in Windows 7 after I calibrated my screen. I wanted to back it up so that if something every were to happen I wouldn’t have to re-calibrate things. Windows to my knowledge give you and easy menu driven wizard to back up a profile. I did some searching and it seems like the only way to back it up is to go to the:
folder and copy the file with the same name as the profile.
All the files are named with an extension of .icm
If you want to know how to import the calibration right click the file and select “Install Profile”.
Open “Color Management. I’ve listed them from the easiest to hardest IMO.
- START ORB – SEARCH LINE – Color Management
- Control Panel – All Items View – Color Management
- START ORB – SEARCH LINE – dccw and then hit Enter
- File is located: “C:\Windows\System32\dccw.exe”
Under the devices tab select the monitor you want and then apply the profile.
