Import or export profiles

Profile Manager in Command WorkStation allows you to import profiles to the Fiery Server to make the profiles available for printing jobs on the Fiery Server. Use the export function to back up profiles, so that no custom profiles are lost, for example, when the Fiery Server software is updated.

You can also export a profile to your computer to use it with an ICC-aware application, such as Adobe Photoshop.

Import profiles

You can import a source profile (RGB or CMYK), an output profile, or a device link profile to the Fiery Server.

Note: On Windows, a profile must have a file name extension of .icc or .icm to be selectable for importing. On Mac OS, a profile must have a file type of “profile.”
  1. In Device Center, click the Resources tab, click Profiles and then click Import.
  2. Select a folder in the Location list.
    • Manage Custom Locations - Allows you to add or delete folders designated as custom locations. Custom locations are displayed in the Location list.

    • All - Selects all folders in the Location list.

    • OS-installed folders are defined as follows.

    Profiles in the selected folder are displayed and can be selected. Subfolders are included when you select an OS-installed folder. Subfolders are not included when you select a custom location.
  3. Select a profile.
  4. For a CMYK profile, select a setting for Import profile as.
    • CMYK Source and Simulation - To use the profile as a CMYK source profile. Select if you want the Fiery Server to simulate another printer or press standard.

    • Output - To use the profile as an output profile. Select for a custom profile of your copier/printer.

  5. Click Import.
  6. If the Profile Settings dialog box is displayed, select settings for this profile and click OK. You set the profile settings when the imported profile is a new profile (not a replacement of a profile already on the Fiery Server).

Export profiles

You can export a profile from the Fiery Server as a backup measure or to use the profile with an ICC-aware application such as Adobe Photoshop.

  1. In Device Center, click the Resources tab, and then click Profiles.
  2. Select the profile and click Export.
  3. Browse to the desired location on your computer and click Choose (Mac OS) or OK (Windows) to save the profile.
