It also lets you profile more than one device or ink/paper combination. If you use non-OEM inks, it can definitely get you closer to a match with what you see on your monitor and save a lot of time mucking around in Photoshop. Unfortunately, at least at present, profiles made with EZColor do not lay enough ink down to work perfectly on watercolor paper. And there are problems with color casts in the whites, in my experience. Supposedly Monaco is working to fix these issues. If they do, this will be a killer program. In the meantime, you can usually work around the problems by using adjustments in Photoshop. The inkjetmall (Cone) profiles give richer color, and are definitely worth it if you have standardized on one or two ink/paper combos, and if you print using non-standard ink and paper. The inkjetmall profile-editing software is much more expensive than EZColor, but is meant to allow you to not only make, but also edit your profiles so that they do exactly what you want them to do. If you can afford it, that gives it a definite advantage. --David Stock - Please: Stay on topic. Trim quoted messages. http://www.leben.com/lists for list instructions.
