The first way to acquire generic profiles, as just explained, is from device manufacturers. Scanners, displays, and printers typically come with generic profiles that are installed automatically with the device software. In some cases, however, you may need to download the profiles separately. Some vendors make profiles available for download from their Web sites, including profiles for different printer paper and ink combinations.
If you're not using Adobe Photoshop (or any of Adobe's other professional design applications), Adobe has made many of these ICC profiles available on its Web site for download at www.adobe.com/support/downloads/main.html#ICC.
Finally, there's, you guessed it, the Internet. A variety of Internet sites offer profiles, typically a combination of free and for-sale profiles. For example, the Seattle firm Chromix has an area on its Web site (www.chromix.com) where you can find and download profiles for a variety of devices, including printing presses.
The tables below contain a list of popular photo papers which have been tested and approved to use with Canon printers as well as their media type and paper tray settings. The ICC Profiles for these papers are included in the download packs.
Note about opening archives:Several downloads on this page are available as StuffIt or ZIP archives. In order to open StuffIt archives you will need the free StuffIt Expander (available from - though the procedure to access the free StuffIt Expander has become pretty cumbersome now). Opening or de-compressing ZIP archives is directly supported by Mac OS/X 10.3 and Windows XP. With other operating systems or versions of operating systems you may need one of the free un-ZIP tools on the internet. Archives whose names only differ with regard to their suffix - .sit versus .zip - have the same content.
