I think I confirmed this (unintentionally) when trying to make a profile that would produce off-color prints deliberately. I altered the entire scan of the IT-8 target and the printer-produced test bars, and the resulting profile gave results not terribly different from the "normal" one. >Also remember that to compare a target to a corrected >version on screen requires a 5000 degree lighting booth. Anything else is >apples to oranges. True, and I don't. (However, I'm pretty sure my standard fluorescent lights in the computer area are not going to make my printed gray scales look warmer, which happens to be the apparent direction of my errors.) I do have a 5000k light box in my darkroom, but it's too heavy to hang over my head without some serious help. Maybe I could borrow the tubes from it. Anybody know where I could get 5000k bulbs that would work in a standard (old-style) shop light? Gary Hunt <firstname.lastname@example.org> - Turn off HTML mail features. Keep quoted material short.
