Where are my color profiles?

  1. Hi,

    When I converted to NX2 I seem to have lost my color profiles (Nikon RGB, Nikon SRGB, and Prophoto, along with some others. I checked my System32/spool/color folder and they weren't there. I have downloaded some Adobe RGB1998 and Srgb and prophoto profiles and they seem to be working fine but I was wondering where I can find the NIkon versions. Also, does anyone know why they would disappear? I have done a search of my hard drive and cannot find them. Thanks,

    Mike

    Not quite correct folder path. In Windows XP:

    System32/spool/drivers/color
     
  3. You are correct. I did a google search on my problem and one of the replies told me to look in Program Files/Common Files/ Nikon/ Profiles. I found Nikon1998 and NikonSrgb there. I copied them to the appropriate Windows folder and they appeared in NX2. I also found Prophoto on the Internet and downloaded that.

    I still don't know why they disappeared in the first place.
