Thanks for the reassurance. Any idea why the profiles aren't installed in Library/ColorSync?Profiles automatically by the Epson installer?
Just the way Epson chooses to work. Guess that makes it easier to "uninstall".
Sometimes this work around is required to get LR to see the profiles. This is usually the only way the colorsync utility can see them as well.
One thing you can do is move them instead of copying them What I do is create a folder within my Library/ColorSync/Profiles folder with the name of the printer ... 7900. I move all of the profiles from Epson's package into this folder. I then create another folder inside the 7900 folder I label Disabled, and I move all of the 7900 profiles I don't use into that.
OS X appears to read one subfolder deep inside the Profiles folder. This means when printing in Photoshop I only see the 7900 profiles I want to see. If you reinstall the driver, they will all be back in the Epson package so you have to discard those, or replace the ones in the colorsync folder if there may have been changes.
Apple should take a look at how LR lets you enable/disable profiles. That would be a great improvement, but this "hack" helps.
