Re: Profiling monitor at D65 or D55 for printing

Yes, I find 6000K is good for my OBA free or minimal OBA non-matte papers, and for my one (matte) rag paper I'm finding 5300K is good. But it's a tough call what is truly best. The lighting you use to evaluate the print is so critical to the process that it's virtually as important as calibrating your monitor.

But of course it's more complex than that. The matte rag paper needs a lower contrast ratio, and is better with sRGB gamut, while the baryta paper works best with AdobeRGB and higher contrast ratio. My monitor can store 3 profiles which makes life easier.
