Those are film/theatre/cinema camera profiles that are installed with Photoshop.

Hi Chris,

I have the same question and, after spending an hour Googling, other people do too. I understand these profiles are installed with PS. Is there any way to get rid of them? All they do is take up space and make it difficult to get to the profiles I use on a regular basis.

You could remove them, but I really don't recommend it.
Removing them will cause problems for updaters, and they are shared with After Effects, Premiere, etc.
The files are in the Application Support/Adobe folder near the recommended profiles folder.

Thanks, Chris. I will take your advice. That said, I neglected to mention that I'm on Windows and I'd love to know where they reside because I've looked and looked. Can you point me in the right direction?
