Not sure why anyone would suggest that. I use my custom monitor profile for just about everything. It encompasses most of Adobe RGB. In some hues, it can't display the full gamut of Adobe RGB like some really way out their saturated reds , but my monitor is capable of displaying large gamut ranges that, if I used Adobe RGB as my working color space, I'd actually be clipping off color I could be using. Basically, as long as your monitor is fully calibrated and properly profiled a wide gamut monitor being much preferred , using your own monitor profile as your working color space is every bit as accurate and viable as using a canned profile.
After that, you just need to learn where it doesn't work. An example being Bay Photo labs. Prints come back perfect. If I send them as is and they convert it, color is off - way off. MPix requires images to be in sRGB the worst possible choice. But you have to convert your images before sending them if you want the prints to come back with the correct color. That is, they match your monitor.
A closed loop setup is always best. You are controlling color from beginning to end. I create custom profiles for everything. Scanner, monitor, and printers. Anything I print comes out as perfect as possible to the screen. The only limit is the gamut and color range the printer is capable of. Don't expect flaming bright reds to come out looking like your monitor.
You'll never get that on any kind of paper.

Unless you've manually changed where your downloads go, they should always wind up in the Documents folder of your user account. I would suspect you'll find it there. While you can setup Safari to automatically open "safe" files, it would still extract the. I seriously doubt you do. The most, and really only usable one is Adobe RGB.
I haven't found a definitive answer on that. If you check the ICC web site , it simply says it was established in by eight industry vendors. Doesn't mention who those eight were. Though I wouldn't doubt for a moment Apple was one of them. I have very few profiles on my system. Most of them get tossed as I have no need for them. I have a grand total of 11 profiles I use regularly, or occasionally. And of those, 10 are custom profiles I created for the various papers I use on an Epson , and a Xerox The last one is my monitor profile. The only time I use other profiles is for the necessary conversions of prints going to Mpix or Bay Photo, or those automatically used by Premiere Pro and Encore to produce DVDs or Blu-ray disks to produce output color that is correct on a typical TV.
Canned profiles are just that - canned. So a profile I made for gloss paper on the Epson is useful because it tells the OS what gamut and color range that hardware can reproduce on that paper. My monitor profile is useful because it tells the OS exactly what gamut and color range my monitor is capable of displaying. A canned profile such as ColorMatchRGB is totally useless because it isn't a mathematical representation of any device I have here. It's meaningless.

I said downloads should end up in your Documents folder. They will go to the aptly named Downloads folder. Feb 16, AM in response to john roehling In response to john roehling. Yes, but with the ever increasing cost of the subscription you get overseas support that sounds like they are actually calling you "under-seas" from a sub with a tin can tied to a string because they have not figured out when you add a new user to the system how to keep Cloud from requiring a complete reinstall off the web because it stops running.

Feb 16, AM. I did discover in a related Reader issue but not germane, that the latest Adobe PDF viewer does not purposely create errors for files not of their origin as a way of driving business towards their products. That at least in the opinion of the support team for the software originator, who say they own the problem. So much for one of my conspiracy theories. However I still resent in this day and age the overall implication for DIY desktop publishers that if you don't have their products you might as well chop off your hands.
Installing an ICC profile for InDesign and Photoshop (Windows/Mac)
Feb 17, AM. Sorry, a days worth of looking into your latest post, the reply text disappeared. I have to reconstruct it. I have to reconstruct the reply text I spent a day on. Thanks for responding, like you I have discovered that the subject can go on for pages, volumes even. The issues I'm having are it seems peculiar to PDF images. I should 'fess up; I'm one of the great unwashed and ignorant multitudes known as the self-published, or more politely, the indie-published.
As one of our gurus said Jane Friedman to be precise , "if you self-publish you're in the publishing business". What Amazon does for us both electronically and in print within two hours, when venturing out into the wider world takes weeks of nerve-racking work if you are poor, a hopelessly confirmed DIY and view computers essentially as glorified typewriters as much as possible. Print is our biggest issue. Publishing software, Scribus in my case, allows for you to save images, say your book cover and photos therein as CMYK using built-in color sets. These appear in color management only, which must be activated to reach the mandated holy grail of a PDF-x-1a.
Within the particular book cover, I was presented with a frightening list of names that made no sense to me so I looked for anything that contained CMYK.
There is nothing labeled ICC and nothing labeled Adobe for that matter. By smoother I mean more subtle and harmonized--I'm envious. This must have something to do with that monitor even though are calibrated the same since there is no change in the file. I have only one workaday Mac. I plan to make copies of all these PDF's and take them to a Signal Graphics print store to see what actually comes out on paper and seek their advice as to any differences in the printing the various ones.
If I learn something useful, I'll post it. In this day and age it seems like there ought to be a better electronic way to verify this. Do you know if there is one? On the dock a lime green zip icon flickered on while on the desktop one of those blue time-bars flew by. Both of these vanished so fast they barely registered, gone. Does this mean they auto-install? Do these things just run in the background? The only instances I've been able to find where any of the plethora of these cryptically-named color profiles can be chosen and specified reside in the publishing software applications themselves.
I note also that you somehow have created specific color profiles for your own, probably higher-end, printers. All of them came out a uniform horrifying mud, and I do mean mud. This only happens with the required to export PDF formats; photos print fine enough for our shutterbug as well as web pages and even screen-shots of the various PDF's.
sRGB vs Adobe RGB vs ProPhoto RGB
I Googled the issue and found to the point complaints about my HP Laser model printing PDF's in "dark grayscale" with no meaningful solutions given. Somewhere in my rummaging for color profiles I noted that there was a color profile installed by model name for every Epson we've owned since the sixteenth century. Not a peep from HP.
