AuthorSubject: Testing Monitor & Printer profiles   [Go to Bottom of Page]
Edward McCain
Posted on Fri Sep 5, 2003 11:36 PM

This seems like a really basic question, but I want to ask it anyway. I'm setting up to print a show of fine art prints on my Epson 7600 using Ultrachrome Inks, Epson Premium Luster paper and the Atkinson profile. I'm using a La Cie Electron 22 Blue III monitor calibrated with a Colorvision spyder and optical. I set the optical settings as follows:
Curve: Gamma 1.8
Whitepoint: 6500K
Luminance: Black: .3 White 95

What would be the best method of testing to see where I should be placing the black point and white point on the digital file for starters - at least that's where I normally start working and then adjust the curve for contrast (or should I just be able to eyeball the white and black points simply by proofing in Photoshop)?

I'm thinking that it might help to build a test strip of some sort so I have a visual referance of what screen values equal what print values, but I'm wondering if I'm re-inventing the wheel. Surely there are resourses available for this kind of thing already. Or am I way off track with this line of thought?
