Simon Garrett's recent activity

  • Here's a sample print from a Canon PRO-200, held next to the screen. The brightness of the screen (calibrated to 110cd/m2 - I wrongly stated 120 above) is pretty similar to the print, viewed in ...
  • Yes, fine.  I print generally from LR (Classic), using colour management by LR not the printer, using settings in the screen shots above. My monitor is calibrated to 120cd/m2, the profile created ...
  • My Pro-200, which has similar inks, produces a vertually identical test print.  The yellow is almost invisible viewed under warm light.  It's slightly more visible under daylight or other more ...
  • I'm not sure whether that's the cloud-based version (aka "Lightroom" or "Lr" in Adobe documentation) or the stand-alone version (aka "Lightroom Classic" or "LrC"), but I use only Lightroom Classic. ...
  • With is calibrated at 120 cd/m2, how do prints look?  If still too dark and dim, then next check is probably colour management. What software are you using to view images?  Does the monitor profile ...
  • No, you've done 0% of what I suggested. Until you know the brightness of your monitor in cd/m2 then it's very difficult to diagnose why prints are too dark. There could be many other issues, but ...
  • Thanks, useful to know.
  • On the second tab (Calibration) check "Interactive display adjustment", then set White level as "Custom" and set the white point.  If you leave "Interactive display adjustment" unchecked, thatn ...
  • But there are many variables in printer settings.  Without knowing the printer driver settings, what will this show? You could turn off any printer adjustments (in the case of recent Canon printers ...
  • When you say it's calibrated with the xrite tool: to what brightness is it calibrated? I mean, what brightness value in cd/m2? For prints, the value should normally be in the range 80-120 cd/m2. ...
  • I've had a Canon Pro-200 for 2 years, and often don't print for a couple of months, and have never yet had any clogging.  Not once.  Perhaps I'm living on borrowed time.
  • Yep, the i7-4770 was released in 2013.  My last 2 desktops have used more recent processors than that, and I'll probably upgrade again this year or next.
  • Well, it may be because you are more knowledgeable about linux than I am, and perhaps I'm not using it as efficiently as you. I spend time googling and reading on the tasks I need, but I'm sure ...
  • Wow! W10 to linux is out of the frying pan, into the fire. I use linux mainly for web hosting. Once or twice a year I have to rebuild linux on a server. Just building linux and loading the ...
  • Agreed, but it's guesswork really as one can have little idea of the ambient light levels of someone else.  The ambient light levels for working in sunlight compared to indoors in a working ...
  • Nor me on Classic Shell or the new Open Source replacement Open Shell.  I've used it on half a dozen or more computers without issue.  AFAIK it doesn't make an irreversible changes to Windows, and ...
  • Very easy. There are a lot of options, but it works out of the box with no tweaking and gives a start menu very similar to W7. I've used it ever since W10 launched. Works on W11 as well. You still ...
  • For me it's 175% on a 27 inch 4K monitor.  That makes text the same size as on a 24 inch 1920x1200 sitting next to it (scaled at 100%).
  • Replied in Sure
    I agree about the not much good, but there are a few bad things. For example I use Windows File History Backup, which still exists in W11 but has been severely reduced in functionality. PS - your ...
  • Glad to hear both what you are doing and that someone is paying for it!
