Creating Custom Printer Profiles in Photoshop CS6

PS CS6 Icon Web Creating Custom Printer Profiles in Photoshop CS6
I’ll keep it simple: You cannot use Photoshop CS6 to create your Custom Printer Profile - the “why” is too complicated to get into, but the “No Color Management” option no longer exists (CS4 and earlier), and there is not a “workaround” such as that used in CS5.
So you have two choices:

1) The Best Choice:
  Use an older version of Photoshop to create your Profile – Yes, you can install more than one version of Photoshop on your computer;  you just can’t open them at the same time.
2) The Not-So-Good Choice:  Use the Adobe Color Print Utility.   This is incredibly “buggy” software, and rarely works properly – use it as a last resort if you have a Mac, and not at all if you have a PC.   Adobe ACPU Download

Once your profile is CREATED properly using another program,
it can USED in any program that incorporates Color Management,
including Photoshop CS6.
