How to Install ICC Profile on Windows 11

Usually, Windows 11 picks the right color profile for you from a series of defaults. But in rare cases, you may want to install device-specific ICC profiles to get more accurate color management options.

What is ICC Color Profile?

Generally, we modify the display settings to achieve the image they’re looking for. Minor changes, such as adjusting the brightness a bit, playing with the RGB settings, adjusting the contrast, etc., work well.

However, in rare situations, adjusting the on-screen display doesn’t produce the pleasing image we seek due to some limitations.

This is where the ICC Color Profile comes into play. The International Color Consortium (ICC) profile is one great way to achieve color consistency across different devices.

Since ICC Profiles are the standard benchmark for color management, using these profiles, your softwares can translate colors to make sure what you see on screen is as close as possible to the intended color.

How do you download the ICC Color Profile for your device?

There are various ways to download the ICC Color Profiles for your device, but the most trustworthy source is your display manufacturer’s website.

It’s possible that the brand of monitor you’re using may have its own ICC Profile; hence, it’s always recommended to check your display manufacturer’s website first before diving into third-party sources.

If you can’t find the ICC Profile for your brand of monitor, you can download one from the Internal Color Consortium’s official website.
