Hello. I also posted this question with the same title on DPR. No clear answer. Maybe someone here can help me?


I' m using Canon Pro-1000 printer and Hahnemühle Fine Art papers (also their ICC profiles)
At the moment in Qimage One, under Media Type I can ofcourse choose Canon' s own Media types (like " Highest Density Fine Art Paper", and more), but also all HFA (Hahnemühle) settings (I have downloaded them form the Hahnemüle website). Until recently under "ICC Color Profile" in Qimage One, I could also choose from all Hahnemühle icc profiles directly (I could actually see them all when clicking in this window). A nice list rolled out under this window/tab. Now, doing the same, it gives me a choice:

Color management off

Let printer/driver manage color

Choose a profile

When I click on " Choose a profile" a new smaller black window opens. There I can see all profiles arranged by date and time. It looks like a history of when I used what profile. So, many profiles appear more than once and also "Selected profile" (see bottom of these images), are different; EITHER from /Library/Colorsync/profiles/etc. OR /Library/Printers/Canon/BJPrinter/Resources/ICC Profiles/PRO-1000_series1/ etc.
There are however profiles, that show up more than once or twice...sometimes even 3 or 4 times. All the same. Like I said, it looks like I have to select from history. The list is very long and starts to get longer and longer.

I have 2 questions.

1. How can I stop this list from getting longer and longer (can I remove some? How?)

2. (more important) How can I reset Qimage One, so that all ICC profiles from Hahnemühle automatically show when I click on the " ICC Color Profile" window (without having to choose between "Color management off / Let printer, driver manage color and Choose a profile"). I do not want this new window to open at all. I want HFA profiles (Hahnemuhle papers), to show up in a nice row UNDER "ICC Profile" in Qimage One, when I click on that. Just like it does when I click on "Media Settings".

Thank you very much!

I'll try

Question 1 Simply open the list and highlight 1 or more and hit the delete key. See attached snap 059.
Question 2
I can offer what I have.  In Qimage, I open MEDIA tab TYPE. I open that and I see about a half dozen Fine art papers with designations of various densities; Heavy Medium Heaviest... etc.
I click on Profiles and (I never down loaded profiles from them but I did have one.)It has extra heavy fine art paper in its name.
Next I click on the Profile button to access the driver, and set Quality manually to highest whic is 2 with this paper.
Then I click on Color/Intensity and manually set that to MATCHING NONE. Close driver.
Ready to print.

When ready to select a profile use the feature that says, "Suggest printer profile. See 062
I hope I helped a little.

Thank you Fred. I' m on Mac..so I use Qimage One.

1. I cannot highlight more than one. Even so, it' s not possible to delete .
2. In the Media tab Type I can see those Canon Fine Art designations, but also all the HFA (Hahnemühle) paper profiles...so many more than you probably.
When I click on ICC Color Profile tab I can see what I described in my forst post AND the last paper (one) I used (Qimage One remembers last settings, as you know).
Now if I choose " Choose a profile" (because I want to use another paper profile)...this new, small black screen opens...with tens of possibilities (and growing).From this list I cannot delete any (like I said).

I was able to choose any HFA (Hahnemuehle) paper profile just by clicking the "ICC Color Profile" tab. Like in Media Type tab, all these showed up the same way (as a list under this tab); no other black window opened. I would love to have this back again. Don' t know what (I) changed.

I am on a PC W 10 but that WAS Qimage One.
The Mac may need a different coddling.
Let me pass your post to the Mac guy

After you download the ICC Profiles and associated am1x files from Hahnemuhle, do you use the Media Configuration Tool to load it? That is what I do, and I too have duplicates. BTW, Canson has a pretty good instruction pdf on how to use the Media Configuration Tool for am1x files. I have a copy here; it is the pdf that starts with "MCT...":
https://www.dropbox.com/sh/sx6pkuphb76scvp/AABILHA3LX7ZPRMh0sb1uVXaa?dl=0

If you click on each duplicated profile while in choosing a profile in Qimage One, you will notice each copy is in a different folder. Many of them are in your user/library/Colorsync/Profiles folder, while the duplicate is in Library/Printers/Canon/BJPrinter... folder. I suspect this duplication occurs when using the Media Configuration Tool. It takes the profile, which you may have already placed in your user/Library/Colorsync/Profiles folder and adds it to the BJPrinter folder. I am guessing that folder is what communicates with the printer itself. Qimage One simply looks for ICC Profiles globally on your computer and reports back anything it finds. I do not know of a way to limit its search, so the only way to eliminate duplicates is to remove them from the duplicate locations. I might do this when I get around to cleaning it all up, but I do like having the profiles in that user/Library/Colorsync/Profiles folder for backup reasons (I may want to do a clean OS install some day and want those profiles). Since the profiles really are duplicates, it doesn't matter which one you choose. I am more interested in purging all the profiles for papers I will never use than worrying about the duplicates.

It would be nice if there was the ability to restrict Qimage One's profile search to specific folder(s), but I do not know of a way to do that.
