Hello all, I have been having trouble getting good prints from some Kodachromes that I had scanned as Photo CD's at my nearby custom photo lab. I am trying to make sense of my workflow in order to find out where I am damaging my files. (Posterization & crossover in shadows from too much manipulation I guess). Maybe they're just bad scans but I still have a few questions. When I open the PCD file I have to specify the source and destination profile. My source is Kodak Photo CD Univ. K-14 v3.2 and until now I have been uncertain which destination profile to use. I have been using one of the canned Epson profiles since I have a Photo 700 (no free cone profiles) and am a windoze person who has not gotten Wyziwig yet. My question concerns file conversion. If I use a Printer profile as my destination does PS5 still convert the file into my working space which is Adobe RGB 98? Real World PS says to specify your "RGB set-up space" as the destination, but I don't have this space as a choice. Where is it? In Profiles set-up I have my set-up space (Adobe 98) specified so I think that PS is converting the file to my working space regardless of what I tell the dialog box to use as a destination. Now, when I go to print I am again uncertain exactly how to configure my epson printer driver. Should I use ICM with Adobe RGB as my Space or should I turn off PCM since I already supposedly selected my printer profile when I opened the file into PS. I AM hopefully going to one day get this Color management stuff, but until then I must say I have learned a lot from this list already. Thanks for any help you all can give me.
