  • Nonsense! I can assure you I can produce a higher quality print myself then you or any lab you suggest, it's why I have been printing color since 1985 (analog darkroom, individual contrast masks ...
  • Solux off above but one option for print viewing!
  • Anyone, anywhere that recommends any cd/m2 value without knowing about the print viewing conditions or on-screen proofing is just blowing values smoke up...:-D
  • Such a kludge and the wrong place to ' fix ' the issue! The RGB values are either such they output too dark or they don't. If they appear too dark with proper color management, alter the RGB values ...
  • Technically it doesn't. It uses ProPhoto RGB primaries which define the gamut but it uses a vastly different Tone Response Curve (TRC or what some call gamma). Display calibration aim points are ...
  • Nothing will happen, they will preview fine in color managed applications. -- Andrew Rodney Author: Color Management for Photographers The Digital Dog http://www.digitaldog.net
  • Be VERY afraid of the out of gamut overlay in Photoshop and LR! Buggy, not accurate. One can ask to see OOG on an sRGB file, select sRGB and see overlay. That's not supposed to happen. The overlay ...
  • DO test this first with your files and equipment! Each printer and paper has it's own characteristics defined by ICC profiles which have little if anything to do with sRGB which is a theoretical ...
  • How did you test this and to what devices? This video may aid you in determining why sRGB is one of the worst options for output to a printer: The benefits of wide gamut working spaces on printed ...
  • For me, the best money can buy! Digital images are big piles of numbers, we need to see them in context properly and consistently, hopefully in as wide gamut as possible (unless you're forcing ...
  • This is why the NEC SpectraView and the few like systems are so great for those expecting the best possible reference display system: (1) (1.1) Nearly all if not all current SpectraView displays are wide ...
  • Yes, the NEC branded X-rite i1Display-Pro is a much better instrument. However, if you get this branded unit, it can only be used with the NEC and SpectraView. Andrew Rodney Author: Color ...
  • Color numbers and Color space: Does Adobe RGB (1998) have more colors than sRGB? It’s the wrong question but no it doesn't. But to uncover why, we have to look at a few facts about color spaces, ...
  • You want to do all this work with SpectraView not the software that came with your Spyder. It will have an sRGB setting, select and you're done.
  • The only time I'd use sRGB is posting to the web or mobile devices OR I'm working with a silly lab who doesn't understand proper color management and forces me to send them sRGB for a print. There ...
  • Could be, I'm working with a wide gamut display but the video is in sRGB. And the idea is for you to conduct your own testing and view your own prints, the video is a general guide what and where ...
  • For web, sRGB is the correct answer. Your raw files don't have a defined color space which is nice in terms of flexibility. AFAIK, Aperture uses an Adobe RGB gamut for processing (unlike Adobe ...
  • The benefits of wide gamut working spaces on printed output: This three part, 32 minute video covers why a wide gamut RGB working space like ProPhoto RGB can produce superior quality output to print. ...
  • No, you'd have to click on the Workflow Options link, toggle the settings and update the soft proof. Not ideal.
  • Here's how to test the browsers for color management: http://www.color.org/version4html.xalter http://www.gballard.net/psd/go_live_page_profile/embeddedJPEGprofiles.html Andrew Rodney Author: Color ...
