More Information

ICM files are used by the Kodak Professional Color System and other color management systems. The "ICM" extension is often used in Windows, but color matching profiles more commonly use the .ICC extension. Both extensions are recognized by most color matching software.

An ICM file for the current display can be selected in Windows by opening the Display Control Panel and selecting "Display Properties." Then click Settings→Advanced Properties→Color Management.
