I just downloaded my first profile. Thanks for the speedy delivery.

My first print was disappointing, but I decided I needed to dig in and set up soft proofing and recalibrate my monitor.

The soft-proof was eye opening. I could plainly see loss of detail within the areas of the print that previously had appeared to be suffering from an over supply of ink. A curves adjustment allowed me to open up those areas and get the first satisfactory print of this image. I don’t want to get over-enthusiastic before doing more tests with various files but so far, so good.

Now what I’d like to do is confirm my approach and settings. Here’s a link to screen shots of what I’m using:
http://www.scrantonproject.com/2200/print_01/print_settings.htm

** Is there any kind of rule of thumb regarding use of perceptual vs. relative colormetric?

** In the print dialog I can choose “document” or “proof setup” as source space. Which is more appropriate?

** Are my settings OK in each screen shot and is my soft proofing strategy (proof and then correct the proof) appropriate as well?
