Opening ICM files

Did your computer fail to open an ICM file? We explain what ICM files are and recommend software that we know can open or convert your ICM files.

What is an ICM file?

ICM is an acronym for Image Color Matching. Files that contain the .icm file extension usually hold the color settings for a specific software application or computer device.

Printers, monitors and scanners are devices that often use files with the .icm file extension. These ICM files allow multiple software applications, computer devices and even different computers to use the same color settings so that there is continuity between the way the colors are displayed when the file is opened and printed.

Some of the software applications that make use of the ICM file extension include CorelDRAW, the Microsoft RAW Image Thumbnailer, Adobe Photoshop and Cerious ThumbsPlus.

Try a universal file viewer

In addition to the products listed above, I would suggest that you try a universal file viewer like Free File Viewer. It can open over 200 different types of files - and very likely yours too! Download Free File Viewer.
