How do I assign profiles to devices?

You may want to assign a color profile for your screen or printer so that the colors which it shows are more accurate.

  1. Open the Activities overview and start typing Settings.

  2. Click on Settings.

  3. Click Devices in the sidebar.

  4. Click Color in the sidebar to open the panel.

  5. Select the device for which you want to add a profile.

  6. Click Add profile to select an existing profile or import a new profile.

  7. Press Add to confirm your selection.

Each device can have multiple profiles assigned to it, but only one profile can be the default profile. The default profile is used when there is no extra information to allow the profile to be chosen automatically. An example of this automatic selection would be if one profile was created for glossy paper and another plain paper.

If calibration hardware is connected, the Calibrate… button will create a new profile.
