  • Using the Canon Accounting Manager will show you how much ink is used for each individual print. In my case it does show also color inks being used in black and white prints  . Since AFAIK the ...
  • You could have a look at Hahnemühle Bamboo. It has a pronounced warm tone and no OBAs. With 290 gsm it only falls a bit short of your weight expectation, but it is actually 0.5mm thick and feels ...
  • Yes, exactly. If you would create your own media type, you should also use the "High Density Art" as base paper, at least if you follow Hahnemühle's recommendation. As I just learned in another ...
  • Hahnemühle Photo Rag Satin and Photo Rag Pearl are also cotton-based papers that try to compromise between glossy and matte finishes. https://www.hahnemuehle.com/en/digital-fineart/fineart-media/gl ...
  • Hi Jim, At least for Hahnemühle, the PDF shows you how to set the printer driver to print correctly from Photoshop. You can easily apply this to Lightroom as well. However if you want to have your ...
  • Thanks! It was very useful for me to learn that there is some hidden magic in these media types. I compared the High Density with the Special 6, and with all settings equal it clearly shows the ...
  • Very interesting test, thanks for the info. Some questions about it: What "Ink Usage" setting does the "Fine Art Smooth" has? Is it also on "Largest", as it is with the "Highest Density"? The big ...
  • So you think there is some magic in there that goes beyond the visible settings of "black ink" and "ink usage"? Then indeed the best option seems to be to go with the paper Hahnemuehle recommends, ...
  • Hi All, This is one for the Canon experts. :-) I am trying to create a custom media type for the Hahnemühle Photo Rag Duo paper, a matte paper with 276 gsm. I would like to achieve the following: (1) B ...
  • Created discussion thread Hahnemuehle FineArt InkJet Albums
    Hi, Does anyone here has experience with these albums? Maybe specifically with the Photo Rag Pearl content paper? I use Photo Rag Pearl a lot. What I can see is that the printed paper curls a bit ...
  • No, the plugin is setup in a way that the data is converted to AdobeRGB. You can easily check this, PSP displays the source "Color Space" on the left panel under "Image Information". Unfortunately ...
  • Hmmm, it does not with my PRO-1000. The normal driver does not show up in PSP, and PSP even did not show up in LR/PS until I installed the XPS driver. Edit: I checked this now again, and the normal ...
  • Have you got the printer setup with the XPS driver? Print Studio Pro (PSP) does not work with the normal one. XPS enables support of 16-Bit data, and is also worthwhile to use from LR. I use Print ...
  • Hi All, My XPS driver for the Canon PRO-1000 keeps forgetting custom media types. The media types are still in the printer, but I need to keep updating the XPS driver via the "update media ...
  • For Hahnemühle I would use the heavier glossy/matte media types as basis for my custom media types. I put the head height to Medium-High for their fine art papers (300-330 gsm) and it works fine. ...
  • You can generate a comparison via the free ICCView web application ( https://www.iccview.de ). In the tool itself you can also rotate the view to see the comparison at different angles. In colors ...
  • Maybe a Pro-1 with a dedicated matte black and a third variant of grey ink will do better at matte b&w prints. It supports the same paper sizes as your Pro-100. Or do you also want to go bigger ...
  • Replied in Canon PSP Auto
    This is unfortunately a bit complicated. PSP gets the media types from the printer driver. The printer driver gets them from the printer. The printer gets them from the Media Configuration Tool. So ...
  • Replied in Canon PSP Auto
    Yes, the media type contains an ICC profile. In addition to the previous two screenshots, here you can see the info on the same two media types from the media configuration tool. This is again the ...
  • Replied in Canon PSP Auto
    Anything you set in the printer driver has ZERO effect on PSP. You don't have to do any experiments with soft proofing to understand what the Auto setting does. Just hover over the "Auto" entry, ...
