AuthorSubject: Soft proof process, is this right?   [Go to Bottom of Page]
Steve Niedorf
Posted on Tue Oct 7, 2003 8:38 PM

I’m just about to get some “scatter” proofs from a local color house to show some hesitant clients so they will buy into a digital shoot.

I want to try to create a very accurate soft proof from my 1ds files to present to my clients. I purchased some of the Kodak Matchprint paper to use for the proofs. I plan to nail down the color so well at the soft proof stage that it will run through the system at the color house with little additional adjustment.

Epson 2200 Mac OS 10.2.8

From the color house:
--Get the CMYK working profile they use (if possible)
--Find out if they use calibrated monitors, get color temp and gamma

From me:
--Create a profile with i1 for the Matchprint using IP 5.6 output with color controls off
--Work on the image in RGB in Photoshop using View>working CMYK
plus paper white.
--Create the best file possible in that view
--Create a cross referenced soft proof in IP:
*Printer: Matchprint paper profile created in i1
*Proofer: CMYK Profile from the Color house or SWOP, Absolute intent
*Source: Adobe 98, Applied

I know this will only be as good as the profiles but does it seem like the
right start? Any other recommendations?

Thanks
Steve Niedorf
