I tried endless combinations but the problem actually came from i1Profiler, when you print the ColorChecker proof !

When you print the test charts you have to unactivate of course color management,

and I thought that at the end of profiling, when you print the ColorChecker proof to test your profile, you need to specify in the printer utility the newly created ICC profile.

WRONG ! You need to still disable color management, because what actually happens is that i1Profiler actually modifies the colors of the NewColorCheckerChart.tif file !

The NewColorCheckerChart.tif file is tied to a specific ICC profile.

Of course, when you print your actual pictures, you then have to enable the ICC profile.

I will soon post scans, the PRO-10S is actually much better than the PRO-100S on plain paper ! Pigment wins against dye ! Contrary to most people that never tried it claim...
