  • Stay away from this product, not close to best in class! http://forum.luminous-landscape.com/index.php?topic=103094.msg845726#msg845726 The higher the reported dE, the worse the unit preformed. So ...
  • You need the specific CMYK ICC output profile for the specific printing conditions to do this properly. Failure to do this can result in some very expensive problems you'll be blamed for IF you ...
  • Replied in NEC or BenQ?
    Get a PA series! (1) 1. Nearly all if not all current SpectraView displays are wide gamut, Apple's and most other's are not (sRGB like gamut) with the exception of the new iMac P3 displays. But ...
  • Sounds like it's your calibration aim points (targets)! Maybe this will help: Why are my prints too dark? A video update to a written piece on subject from 2013 In this 24 minute video, I'll cover: ...
  • I'm fine with my 27". If you need more screen real estate, for say for pallets and such, get something cheap and run dual displays.
  • To a large degree yes but not ideal, especially with a very wide gamut working space. Best to keep all high bit data. When you print, very, very few drivers actually send high bit data to the ...
  • Hard to beat a SpectraView but that quality comes at a price. That said, one of the last items anyone should skip on in a digital darkroom is the display! Why SpectraView? (1) Nearly all if not all ...
  • The way to really evaluate this is with a 3D gamut map. As you can see, there's just a little gained here in Cyan/Blues over sRGB. The transparent red is DCI-P3, the actual color plot is sRGB. Red: ...
  • Doesn't render raws?
  • Far better, search for a lab that has a complete and honest ICC color managed workflow, providing actual ICC Profiles that can be used for soft proofing and conversions with any RGB working space! ...
  • Everything else is season to taste.
  • Probably on demand digital press like an Indigo, Nexpress, Xeikon. That's how Apple prints their calendars through iPhoto/Aperture etc.
  • Managed by Printer. Depends, you'll have to test but Darker for some reason is 'the default '. Should still 'work'.
  • Get Chris's version in Lab: http://colorremedies.com/realworldcolor/downloads.html
  • Replied in RAW Processing
    Yeah, kind of. The edits are parametric or rather instruction based. You're not editing the pixels, the raw is read only. You're editing instructions for rendering the raw data into new, virgin ...
  • The values should be defined in Lab OR if RGB, based on some color space. All patches except Cyan fall within sRGB color gamut. If the correct values appear off, it is an issue with your display ...
  • Replied in Thanks guys!
    An ICC profile defines a color space. Or convert to some other color space after which, that profile needs to be embedded into the document. Actually you just need a primer on basic color ...
  • Depends on the raw converter and the profile under discussion! In an Adobe raw workflow, there are DNG Camera Profiles. Other raw converters use ICC camera profiles which are vastly different. DNG ...
  • I don't understand your point. Viewed how and where? There's absolutely nothing that limits viewing the data as you describe everywhere . The only limitation to 8-bit JPEG is placed on those who ...
