  • Since the culprit is high luminance, we can take the original image, assigned to sRGB, and, using curves, reduce luminance a bit while going back and forth from soft proofing to original until ...
  • Indeed, that's a major factor in why a highly luminous color that isn't all that saturated is out of gamut on a print, yet easily displayed on even a cheapo, narrow gamut, monitor. You may be ...
  • My Lab numbers for the ProPhoto and sRGB triplet match yours. However, your plot of the colors in a luster gamut is seriously flawed. No units are shown. Further, you have to look at the 2D gamut ...
  • The web, W3C, and its HTML, is responsible more than any other source for standardizing on sRGB "hex" colors which, by default, are in hex triplets 0xRRGGBB. Recognizing that sRGB is a rather ...
  • Absolutely. A wide gamut monitor won't show all the colors that are printable.  But there are far more colors displayable on a wide gamut monitor than are printable. For instance more saturated ...
  • Not sure where you heard the term "full spectrum monitor" but there is no such thing. There are wide gamut monitors but even they can't fully show all the colors most printers can print. And ...
  • Of course it's rubbish. When I see obvious nonsense claims like that I tend to discount other claims that may be true. That's the downside of gross, marketing exaggeration. The most appalling ...
  • I too think Bob's note re internal name differences is the likely problem. A large percentage of my OEM printer profiles have very obscure file names that bear little relationship to the names ...
  • V2 and V1 i1iSis licensing are the same. The dongle alone, with a new I1Profiler, should bring up all the different i1iSis versions and sizes. I1Profiller w/o license can still scan and save ...
  • Excellent. This is the principal reason for perceived discrepancies between prints and screen images. Using a near white surround with a white canvas border that matches the print border, is a ...
  • Yup, and it would be nice if LightRoom allowed one to print and soft proof against all the intents and not just the two they believe photographers should be restricted to.
  • Mike, Some dulling is true for most icc profiles but some actually increase saturation. For instance the canned profiles for the Canon 9500 II will print a more saturated green (up around L*=60, ...
  • I too love having the large patch set but ran into a problem that puzzled me for a time. I scanned the same sheet once for M2, and again for M0/1/2. Or M0/M2 for the gen 1. The latter takes about ...
  • Interesting.  My i1Profiler is licensed (with the old PM5 dongle from 2005) for everything including CYMK. I've never used CYMK as I don't have a RIP. I just checked the license with the i1Pro 2. ...
  • I have an i1iSis 2 XL. It comes with I1Profiler but not a license for using it to create profiles. But you can use it without a license to create/print/scan profile charts, just not create ...
  • Cool! Now that you have the printing process down. Print one of the reference images using Relative Colorimetric and save it. In the future, when you change computers, upgrade, or get a new ...
  • Overprinting is additive and not dependent on which is printed first. That said, overprinting a dark area is going to result in a darker overprint. It will not lighten. Overprinting can have ...
  • That's also a problem on my 9800. To over print something like a print number or siggy just run the paper through twice but first print the number, then print the image. Works great with single ...
  • That's a whole different problem and one that doesn't require any measurements other than your eyeballs. Just use black paper to create a shade to block the light from the colored incandescent and ...
  • The basic problem is that a colored incandescent bulb is going to be way brighter than you can represent as an RGB value. You might be able to get the chromaticity (xy) value and then set the RGB ...
