    Those are the only locations the OS requires them to be in. If the profile you created was saved in one of them you should be able to see it in Photo RAW already as the OS makes them available to whoever calls for them.

    Do you know the name it was saved with? Do a Finder or Spotlight search for that name. If you use Spotlight you can Command click the file name it finds to open its containing folder.

    You might also want to check the documentation for the software you used to create the profile to see where it places them by default. It should have been your ~/Library/ColorSync/Profiles folder.

    Hi, well I had to run round the houses but eventually got there.

    In all the options to get to the library the only one the profile showed up in was with the Click Go on the menu bar
    Press the option key to show the Library folder any other way including add profile option within On1 and the profile did not show up in the library.

    Once found had to drag the profile into the Profiles folder.

    Thank You, Russ.

    macOS hides the Library folder by default. They don't want people messing around in it if they don't know what they are doing. There is the potential of breaking things. I have mine turned on permanently because I'm always in and out of there. You can Google how to do it if you're interested.
