Lightroom Desktop: Why can't I import Color Profiles

Here is another issue with the cloud version of Lightroom, making me wonder why I'm paying for it.  Why can't I import profiles?  Is this more of an amateur application.  They should tell you that before you buy it.

Actually this is available now but it is buried in the menu.

Click Profile
Tap [...] icon at top of profile list
Choose Import Profiles...

I tried that. It doesn’t work. I’m trying to import .icc files from nations photo lab. Adobe tech support couldn’t get it to work either. I’d be happy to send them to you to see if you can import them.

That is correct and as-designed behavior. The ICC profile is typically used in printing or in soft proofing - neither of which is available in Lightroom Desktop. 

Lightroom Classic would be able to use this profile for either soft proofing or printing.

Hmm, you’re saying that as if it’s a good idea to not include this functionality. Why did they intentionally leave that out. Is there a reason I’m not understanding? I’m paying monthly for it, and assumed it was a pro level product when I started using it. How do I get my free copy of Lightroom Classic now that I need a second version of it to do something the other version should do? I’m having a similar issue with exporting watermarked files at their full resolution. The classic version does this, but not the desktop version.

Why would you want to import an ICC-profile in Lightroom desktop? What do you think you would be able to do with it? Mind you, ICC-profiles are not the same as the camera profiles that Lightroom uses in the edits.

What would I be able to do with it?? The same thing anyone would do with it in the classic version. Is that a serious question?
