    How can I rename a .icc color profile in OS X

    I used my Pantone Huey to calibrate bith my main display and my secondary (just switched primary display between the two machine)

    Everything worked great but I have 2 profiles that have the exact same name.

    I can open up the .icc and do a save as but that just changes the file name not the name displayed in sytem preferences

    any ideas??

    thanks

    Yes I have restarted, and I still see the exact 2 names that I started with.

    Stumbled over this thread while searching for a way to rename a color profile and found the solution afterwards, so just in case people are still looking for a way to rename their color profiles:

    1. change the file name
    2. Tiger, Leopard and Snow Leopard ship with an Apple Script to rename color profiles - just activate the script menu in your menu bar and find it under ColorSync/Rename

    Works like charm.

    Cheers,
