AuthorSubject: Getting started-printer profiles   [Go to Bottom of Page]
Kevin Connery
Posted on Fri Jul 18, 2003 9:22 PM

I've been helping people with basic color management for a while now, as an adjunct to my regular work. If I'm to continue, though, I expect to need to be able to provide more than pointers to other people creating printer profiles.

While the scanner-based Monaco EZColor has been giving acceptable--if not universally so--results, I'm puzzled as to the next steps.

What should I look for in a profiling package and hardware? Are there brands or models that are unusually good or bad choices?

I've been in the software field for over 20 years, and I understand that all software has benefits/drawbacks; what I'm looking for is pointers on what to look out for. (Though if there actually is One True Package, point me to it--but explain why it is The One.)

I've also read Real World Color Management (great book!), which helped put some of the details into perspective, but it didn't answer this question, or I missed it.

Thanks!
