From: Alp Tiritoglu <firstname.lastname@example.org> Subject: CoorVision experience.. Does anybody have experience with Colorvision ProfilerPro? Did using this color calibration tool help you get more accurate colors? Thanks, ********************************* Hmmmmmm........"CoorVision experience". Is that anything like being drunk? The major difference between ProfilerRGB (now called Plus) and ProfilerPro is that Pro offers the tools to edit the profiles after they are made. It is generally accepted that if you want the most useable profile it needs to be tweaked after creating it. There are some that say Monaco EZColor is better at editing than Pro. And there are some who say neither are worth a hoot. And there are others that use more expensive and sophisticated systems and generally get good profiles. Some get good profiles right out of the box with these programs and others never get a good profile. Profiling is not magic, nor is it consistent and basically you pays your money and you takes your chances. Some combinations profile easier and better than others. Some swear by it, others swear at it. It is not a simple question to answer. To answer your question, IF the profile is good you will get better colors. Profiling is not usually necessary unless you are working with non-Epson inks and papers although some do profile the Epson combinations. (With the PC Epson printer driver, the profiles are built in.) (With MAC systems they are separate and in some cases have been adapted to work with a PC.) Many folks have profiles professionally made, each costs about $100. And they say it is a good deal considering the possible time, effort, materials and aggravation of making your own. There is a European Epson site that has individual PC profiles for some printers. They are for the European versions of the printer but it is easy to figure out what the US counterpart is.
