I made a scanner profile but Photoshop (CS4) doesn't find it in the list of profiles I could embed. Maybe there are certain naming requirements? I see the profile in the correct Windows XP folder, along with the others. I tried restarting the computer but that didn't add it to the PS list.

You may need to "install" the profile.
It would normally be in C:\WINDOWS\system32\spool\drivers\color.
Browse to that location and find the profile, select and right click, then choose "Install" from the menu list.
If it says "uninstall", you have a different problem.

Thanks! I did install it, and right-clicking also brought the option to associate it with my scanner. However, Photoshop still doesn't see it. I finally found some instructions at the PS help site, which said installing should be enough. Maybe I'll try making the profile again.

I understand that PS looks for the descriptor section of the profile in the list. If you left that blank or it is the same as a previous profile in Prism, you wont find it from PS.
Qimage shows the entire file with file name and descriptor and date.

I checked and believe that's the problem. I named the profile something that was already in the list, and I was looking for the file name in Photoshop, not the descriptor. Thanks!
