I find Doc Pro works well for fine adjustments like removing a slight colorcast or opening up shadows a bit. If you try big moves with it, you can find that the law of unintended consequences is alive and well. It's a very useful tool, IMHO.

How good a job does Colorvision's DoctorPro do in tweaking scanner-based profiles made by WisiWYG or EZColor of ProfilerPLUS?

NONE of these printer | profilers is intended for professional work; for that get a spectro and build | serious profiles! | | C.
