I can no longer access paper profiles for my Epson ET 8550 printer in Adobe’s Lightroom Mac V11.1
Example profiles are:
EPSON ET-8550 L8180 Series Premium Luster.icc
RR Arctic Polar Luster Ep ET-8550-sa.icc
Using Big Sur 11.6.1 Red River Profiles located in /Library/ColorSync/Profiles and Epson software embedded profiles (/Library/Printers/EPSON/InkjetPrinter2/ICCProfiles/EP2006PM1.profiles/Contents/Resources/EPSON ET-8550 L8180 Series Ultra Glossy.icc) were accessible to Lightroom.
Using Epson Print Layout V1.1.5, I can only use the embedded Epson Paper Profiles for the ET 8550, 3rd party icc profiles are NOT available in the print layout. Is there a way to add 3rd party profiles to Epson Print layout?
After installing Mac OS Big Sur 11.6.2 All paper ICC profiles, Epson and RR, have vanished from Lightroom.
Searching Apple’s web site I found this announcement:
> Available for: macOS Big Sur
> Impact: Processing a maliciously crafted image may lead to arbitrary code execution
> Description: A memory corruption issue in the processing of ICC profiles was addressed with improved input validation.
> CVE-2021-30942: Mateusz Jurczyk of Google Project Zero
In the Lightroom Forum it was indicated that the missing profile problem does not exist with Mac OS Monterey! My Mac is too old (Late 2014 Model) for the Monterey up grade.
That’s why I’m looking for a solution using Big Sur as I’m waiting for the next generation M2 processor to show up in an iMac this summer.
By the way the Qimage Q1 print utility does not see the RED River profiles or the embedded Epson profiles at all!
What’s the solution?

The ‘fix’ is to find the location of the package where Epson installed them.Then use the Contextual Menu “Show Folder Contents”. Move (or copy) to the correct location on your Mac. Quit Lightroom Classic and Photoshop, they should now show up. The path for my P800 and 3880 is:
** this name may vary, depending on the Epson you have. For my 3880, the name is Pro3880.profiles

The issue is a bug in 11.6.2 and 11.6.3 and all you can do is either downgrade or upgrade to 12.x where the bug has been fixed.

There is also a problem with LR not picking-up profiles in the Print Module when working in OS High Sierra. The “remedy” is to select the wanted profile from the drop-down list as usual. It will not show-up in the LR dialog where it should, so shut LR and re-open it, and lo and behold the selected profile appears. This is now a dated OS and corresponding LR version which people who don’t have metal-enabled graphics adapters cannot move beyond, but Adobe probably thinks it’s not worth fixing for whatever number of those people remain. I shall be one less of those once my new Mac Studio arrives and is installed.

Thanks for your information… I too will be moving to a new Mac Studio, probably sometime this summer. I have a couple of projects I need to finish first.
It was however quite a relief to discover that Big Sur 11.6.5 ColorSync Fix let me return to Lightroom’s print flow.
