AuthorSubject: Softproofing on the Artisan for Lightjet output   [Go to Bottom of Page]
Fabrice Grover
Posted on Sat Oct 11, 2003 2:34 AM

I've set my monitor to custom D65, 500:1, gamma 2.2 and am softproofing in Photoshop 7.0.1 using a Lightjet profile provided by my service bureau (http://www.abcphoto.com/colour.html). The bureau has prepared Lightjet profiles for mac and pc for different paper types, including Kodak Matte, Kodak Glossy, Kodak Metallic, Kodak Duratran, and Fuji Crystal Archival; I've selected the matte profile in Photoshop's custom proof setup and am wondering whether or not I should "Use Black Point Compensation," and whether or not I should "Simulate Paper White" and/or "Ink Black." I tried calling the beureau to ask them if I should use the "simulate paper white" option or if their profile already takes into account the paper characteristics, but their "colour expert" wouldn't give me a clear answer, saying that their clients generally prefer to let them "handle the colour issues."

Any suggestions?

I'm also wondering if setting a custom profile in the Artisan software the way I have is equal to using one of the canned "Fine Art" profiles -- even though I am running version 1.2, I don't see the Fine Art profiles anywhere on my hard drive.

Many thanks,
Fabrice
