ICC Profiles

ICC stands for the International Color Consortium. The ICC is a governing body which establishes standards for the display and formatting of color across all mediums and is used by not only the creative community but industry to insure that colors are accurately reproduced.

ICC profiles are computer files which essentially contain a description of the color for a particular device as compared to standards. These files are denoted with either a .icc or .icm suffix. ICC profiles act as a common translation tool to make the color one device, like your monitor, match the color on another device, like your printer.

We have compiled a list of links here to make finding and using ICC profiles for your products a little easier.
