In my on going pursuit to get an accurate RGB>CMYK soft proof with IP 5.6, printing on an Epson 2200 with Photo matte ink, I tried the following:

First, in Photoshop I opened a good test image, went to View and set my working profile, US Web Coated SWOP and paper white. The image went kind of flat and somewhat muddy as expected. I set up adjustment layers and did some minor editing on levels and curves to get good screen image. I saved the image. (I also tested to make sure that the adjusted image opened with the adjustments in IP)

Then I went to IP:

System settings:
Display: Profile created by i1
Printer: Profile for Kodak Matchprint paper created by i1 printed in IP
Proofer: US Web SWOP v.2 (copied over from Photosphop)
Intent: Absolute

Bitmap settings:
RGB: Colormatch Intent: Relative
CMYK: US Web Coated SWOP v.2 Intent: Relative
Embedded: Apply Intent: Absolute

In the print mode I made sure the ink set was correct.

In IP 5.6 MacOsX I opened the RGB test image that I had worked on. In the preview window, instead of the match of the Photoshop screen I got a brighter more washed out looking image, something closer to the edited image without proofer intent. When I printed I got the same washed out image on the screen.

When I switched over to another proofer intent in IP, US Sheetfed Coated, the IP preview looked much more like the Photoshop screen, however when I printed it had a similar washed out look to the Web coated proofer profile.

My paper profile seems fine, when I do a straight print it is a good screen match.

As mentioned I just copied over the proofer profiles from Photoshop.

Any ideas??

Does anyone out there use IP for RGB>CMYK sofproofing? If so how?

Thanks!
Steve Niedorf
