Keith Cooper's recent activity

  • Yes, these are two completely different products - both have targets which need to dry My review goes through the two stage process with i1Studio and the ColorMunki/i1Studio Spectrophotometer This ...
  • Replied in i1Studio info
    Sorry - I don't see how a user manual for a spectrophotometer you don't have is of use? What was the software you used before called? Nope - that's still the standard way to do it. It should work ...
  • Replied in i1Studio info
    i1Studio is a whole different spectro and software - it has nothing whatsoever to do with the i1Pro (see my reviews of i1 studio and other x-rite products). The new i1Studio software is based on ...

    50 +100 + any you use in the optional optimisation step - see details in the review...

    While stocks last... ;-)
  • Replied in drying times
    The changes in measurements in the 85% to 100% range affect the overall tone curve generated and degree of shadow crunch visible. OK a quite specific usage (and using an i1iO for measurements), but ...
  • Replied in drying times
    And still I say no :-) I've recently been looking at B&W printing performance with the Epson P5000 with a number of thick fine art papers (cotton and mixed) Lighter colours may well be stable in ...
  • Replied in i1Studio info
    That's my concern - if I want to do 5 profiles, it's a long process if I want to wait a reasonable time for each print to dry. It seems that it is only in some aspects of the USB interface, so the ...
  • Replied in i1Studio info
    Note that the i1Studio device won't work with the old ColorMunki software. You need a ColorMunki device to work with the original -and- new software.
  • Replied in i1Studio info
    No - no ways of measuring and saving -anything-  :-(
  • Created discussion thread i1Studio info
    Thanks for all the questions and queries about the i1Studio. I've written up some notes about just what it does (and doesn't do) that I hope are of interest. Very much a product aimed at a ...
  • That's why I mentioned the HiDPI (1920) mode for more general use.

    If I wanted 4k specifically I think I'd prefer the 32" SW320

  • I notice a slight delay for first movement sometimes, and then it seems fairly smooth There does seem to be some pre-processing going on - my 50MP RAW files are a bit more sluggish than small 8 bit ...
  • Is that a current Win limitation? I see lots of blend modes in the Mac version more at I personally use it as a PS plugin, but it's showing some ...
  • Replied in Edit history
    Yes a very detailed step by step history (linear - no fancy history brush AFAIK) that you can include when saving the file in the native Luminar file format
  • Replied in Auto?
    Well, there are default settings of a sort in that you have quite a collection of presets (which are sets of adjustments) There is no auto button for RAW processing (no WB etc) One other 'missing' ...
  • I don't have Basiccolor to try, so only really tried an i1Display Pro with i1Profiler

    In the end I used the benQ software, since it's the only one that makes full use of the hardware calibration. ...

  • Ah, yes. I'm afraid I've not been following any of their work on Windows versions of their software.
  • It's a very nice monitor - I've had one here for a month or so.

    The 4k mode gives very fine UI elements on my Mac, so I use it in HiDPI (1920) mode for writing, which is very crisp and easy on the...

  • The version I looked at is the full Mac version that will ship in the near future - Macphun asked me if I'd like to test it out. I've not seen the Windows version (I don't have any PCs here) but I ...
