Re: PhotoCal question



The best option would be to have a custom profile made for the particular paper you are printing on.

Absent that, yes - selecting "Epson 1290" would be a better choice, as it would call upon the Epson standard profile to do the color conversion, and if you read a thread about a month ago the Epson standard profile would adjust ink-color amounts according to the paper setting.  In general it works well, but not as perfectly as a custom profile.

| Hi Maris,
| 
| I understand but have to say that the closest I came to WYSIWYG was when I
| selected the monitor profile in the printer window to see what would happen.
| The blacks, greys, and greens were suddenly spot on but a red/maroon feature
| printed as bronze. The default for the printer profile was "same as source"
| which I don't quite understand. I currently have Adobe RGB selected. Do you
| have a better suggestion? I notice that "Epson 1290" is an option, would
| that be a better choice?
| 
| Thanks for all the links on colour mgmt you posted, there's some excellent
| info there.
| 
| Regards, Tim
