AuthorSubject: IP Softproofing for Grayscale?   [Go to Bottom of Page]
Mac MacDougall
Posted on Thu Jan 29, 2004 12:12 PM

When I print a grayscale image using IP, the printed image is flat compared
to the screen image (unless adjustments are made in Photoshop prior
to printing).

My current procedure for making these adjustments is as follows.

1. Given the on-screen GS image as you'd like to appear in print, print
the image in IP without any PS adjustments.

2. In PS, create a duplicate of the original image and call it COPY;
call the original image ORIGINAL.

3. For ORIGINAL, create a curves adjustment layer in PS and, using the printed
image as a guide, adjust the curve until the screen image looks like the
printed image. (Call this the IP view curve.)

4. Create a second curves adjustment layer for ORIGINAL and adjust this
curve until ORIGINAL looks like COPY. (Call this the IP Adjust curve.)
Alternatively, copy down the input/output coordinates of the IP view
curve, swap them, and use the swapped values to create an IP
adjust curve.

5. Repeat the above for several images until the IP view curve seems to
"settle down".

6. Save the curves. Thereafter, when printing a GS image, use the IP adjust
curve in a final adjustment layer to prepare an image for IP printing.

Question: is there a better way to do this?
