Paper Profiles vs Printer Profiles
Aug 31, 2014

Forgive me if I haven't adequately searched the forum for the answer but, here's the question.  As I am printing with HP B9180, their print software allows the selection of a paper and method of color control (printer vs application).  I assumed that the printer always used a paper selection even with application controlled color (self profiled printer).  My assumption was that the paper selection told the printer how much ink was necessary for a particular paper.  Am I correct and if so, does this concept exist across printer and paper manufacturer lines?
