Sorry to bump such an old thread, but I don't have the required post count to be able to PM mr-andrek directly.

Does anybody know where I can find the zip file of the 60 colour profiles that was posted at the beginning of this thread? The original dropbox link is dead.

Cheers

Can I join in as well and ask if someone could reattach the zip with the profiles.

Decided to stop cluttering the Installer 6.1 thread so I made a new one.

The color profiles provided by the Installer are not ideal. There are different models of display that HP ships with ProBooks, so that's why I need YOUR help to choose the best one for YOUR display model!

Here's my pack of 60 different color profiles: https://www.dropbox.com/s/snwyqsiuhlnqsdf/60 color profiles.zip
Unzip the file and put all of the .icc files into ~/Library/ColorSync/Profiles
If there's no "Profiles" folder there, create one. Also, if you don't see Library folder in your user folder - use "chflags nohidden ~/Library".
Then go to System Preferences -> Display -> Color and check each color profile from the list. Choose one which you like best - both subjectively and with some help from http://www.lagom.nl/lcd-test/black.php and other test pages there. (especially http://www.lagom.nl/lcd-test/contrast.php - see if you could distinguish each "step", "block")
People who have done this - please post your display model - you can obtain it with this command:

Code:
ioreg -lw0 | grep IODisplayEDID | sed "/[^<]*</s///" | xxd -p -r | strings -6
and the prefered color profile so that we could make a list. Thanks!

Also, if none of these in the pack looks good for you - post your display model anyway. If one of the ones already included in the Installer looks best - specify which one is it!

And by the way - I thought before this whole thing is rather irrelevant - until I saw the difference between the ones included in the Installer and some of those that people have made and posted online... Of course, "your mileage may vary"! :)
