I've been using WiziWYG for some time now to profile various papers for use on my Epson 750. Essentially I use the Inkjet Paper media setting for mat papers and the Photo Paper media setting for glossy when printing out the targets. At this point I can see that some papers puddle the ink (Lumijet Premier Glossy) and some get serious dot gain (Lumijet Classic Velour), but I finish the profile, test it out, then move on to the next paper if I don't like the results. Someone on this list mentioned trying a different media selection, ie., Glossy Film instead of Inkjet Paper because it puts out less ink. I tried this approach, and it seems to work pretty well; I intend to go back to papers I'd rejected and try them out again. For example, Tapestry X which is very nice, puddles a little on the Inkjet Paper setting, but much less on Glossy Film. I also noticed that the lighter ink setting seems more neutral; the lower grey target area looks much less green. My question is this: is there a listing of preferred Media setting for various paper/ink/printer combinations? Experimenting is fun, but I'd rather not reinvent the wheel if I don't have to. One more question: is the Inkjet Transparencies setting on the 750 the same as Backlit Film that others have mentioned?
