I am very confused. Profiles are specific to a printer and paper, they have not camera specific. There are camera profiles, but they have little to do with printing.

You also said ‘custom’ profiles, but it sounds like you are using canned profiles download from the Ilford site.

Thanks for speedy reply

I used until yesterday D200 - RAW - Nikon CaptureNX - Epson Glossy or Ilford Gallerie Pearl Smooth papers - custom profiles for each

The profiles I have are :-
One for Glossy on 6700D Canon priner

I have not printed for a little while so then came the confusion

Profile for Canon 900II

ISGP.......... profile which I am sure I downloaded from Ilford website and worked fine with D200 landscape photos ?!

I assumed and thought my ISGP........... was for Ilford Pearl ( logical given name)
and Canon 9000II was my Epson Glossy

When I printed using D300 Ilford paper and profile - yuck - red......................

Changing to Canon 9000II gave much better results

I have obviously got into a bit of a muddle somewhere - I should have named the Profiles more specifically

I just do not wish to keep wasting paper/time and more importantly/expensively ink!
