Harry, you are not alone. After spending countless hours (literally dozens) trying every technique known to mankind to get an acceptable profile using Profiler RGB, I have abandoned hope. It simply will not work for some of us. It appears that it's the luck of the draw, evidently based on whether you have a lucky scanner or not (I have a UMAX Powerlook III, which is no slouch). Do a search in the archives for "Cyan skies", or even under "Profiler RGB", and you will read of others' frustration with this product. I have heard that Doctor Pro could possibly get me closer to an acceptable profile, but at this point it's not worth the extra expense, or investment in more hours of tweaking. My next step is to buy a custom profile (since I have pretty much settled on Generations and EAM), which is why I have been following the current thread with interest.
