ICC Profiles for PIXMA Pro Printers

Expand the range of papers supported by your PIXMA professional photo printer by installing additional ICC profiles. These printer settings provide support for many popular photo papers tested and approved by Canon and enable precise screen to paper colour matching.


An ICC profile is a file containing information which allows a printer to achieve accurate colour on a specific type of paper. If you have concerns about the print matching your display, ensure that your monitor is correctly calibrated.

Installation of ICC profiles

The ICC profiles for Canon papers are installed together with a printer driver. To install additional profiles for other popular photo papers tested and approved by Canon download the ICC profile pack for your printer from one of the links below:

PRO-1 Windows Mac
PRO-10 Windows Mac
PRO-100 Windows Mac

Install the profiles following the procedure for your operating system:

Windows: Right-click the downloaded ICC profile and select ‘Install Profile’ from the menu

Mac: Copy the ICC profiles to the ‘Profiles’ folder located in Finder / Go / Computer / [Your HD] / Library / ColorSync

Printing with ICC profiles

The additional ICC profiles can be selected in printer driver, Print Studio Pro plug-in as well as other professional photo applications. To achieve expert quality photo prints with ease use Print Studio Pro plug-in which integrates seamlessly with Adobe Photoshop® family (CS, Lightroom, Elements) as well as the Canon Digital Photo Professional.
