ICC GEN for Windows and Mac



(* Special thanks to Ben Lindquist)


CREATING THE ICC PROFILE USING ARGYLLCMSII SOFTWARE VIA ICC GEN JAVA SOFTWARE

 I use Argyll CMI II software and a JAVA interface built by my son to convert the .cvs file to .ICC profile.

This is a 3 step download/install process:


 1. CLICK LINK TO =>

DOWNLOAD JAVA FOR YOUR SYSTEM


2. CLICK LINK TO =>

DOWNLOAD ARGYLLCMSII FOR WINDOWS

   DOWNLOAD ARGYIICMSII FOR MAC OS
(Please consider donating to the Argyll Software website)


3. CLICK LINK TO =>
 



NEXT, I use ICC GEN to create the ICC profile

Install ICC GEN or use Argyll any other way you prefer, or any other software that will convert the .csv, or .txt file to an ICC profile.  I1Profile, RGB DROP, and many other programs will do the same thing.  The ICC GEN program is made in Java and only works for both Mac and Windows systems.  READ directions for installing and using.  There is no technical suppoprt for ICC GEN.  ICC GEN simply harnesses Argyll software and runs the commands.  All you have to do is find the Bin folder  where you have downloaded Argyll, and  input that into the top selection, then specify anywhere you would like ICC GEN to put the finished ICC Profile.  Press GO then wait, and after a while it says it's done and the ICC profile is with the .csv file.


Instructions below are for Mac, however they are the same for Windows.

 

IMPORTANT INSTRUCTIONS:

CREATE a FOLDER in your HOME DIRECTORY CALLED icctest.

DOWNLOAD  ICC GEN AND INSTALL ALL FILES in the icctest folder in your home folder:







Next, Find the .ICC file (which is in the same file as your .csv file) and install it in the paper preset management under the exact profile that was created as a preset for the paper calibration. (It installs on top of the old profile and becomes the new profile.




The printer installs the profile and puts it in the list with the other papers and .icc profiles






Special thanks to Geraldo Garcia for his tutorial on Luminous-Landscape Forum, and to
Ben Lindquist for creating ICC GEN for me to be able to use Argyll software without having to go into terminal.

ICC GEN uses V 1.9.2

Special Thanks to Mark McCormick-Goodhart for finding the bug in the install instructions
and to son Ben for figuring out what I did wrong.

The profile is set up to generate an RGB profile for use with relative colormetric rendering intent.
Future iterations may include others, such as perceptual, etc.

This tutorial is for my own notes so that I can come back and remember how to do it, if I forget a part of it.
If you use the tutorial, do so at your own risk.  I make no guarantees. This is just how I do it on my Mac system.
