Generally I update early when new software comes out. Generally, Mac stuff is great. The updates make things quicker, more reliable and uphold that “it just works” Mac philosophy. Not so Sierra. 10.12.1 is filled with oodles of bugs and glitches – especially where Lightroom is concerned.
Besides Lightroom being unstable and crashing all the time under Sierra, another gong show happened today. I went to print a photo and all my Canon ICC profiles were gone. They showed up as print paper options but the side of the print dialogue for Color Management only offered the ‘Managed by Printer’ option.
I went hunting for the ICC profiles where they live (Hard Drive/Library/ColorSync/Profiles) and they were just simply gone. Vanished. Not there. WEIRD. And frustrating. Because Canon doesn’t simply make their paper profiles available for simple download. No, they are bundled in a driver. Which is beyond stupid.
Opening the OS X ColorSync utility you can see all the ICC profiles installed on your computer. For whatever reason (possibly something new in Sierra), the profiles are no located where they used to be. Instead go to Hard Drive/Library/Printers/Your Printer/SubPrinter/Resources/ICCProfiles/PRINTERNAME (which is a container of which you have to right click to see contents)/Contents/Resources/Viola!
I found them all here in this place, copied them and pasted them back into the Hard Drive/Library/ColorSync/Profiles which is where Lightroom needs them to print.
So boo ya Grandma, now we’re back in action. What a convoluted gong show. Lightroom sucks. Sierra sucks. Everything sucks.
I feel better. 😎
