I am going to explore printing with QTR on my Epson R2400 with the Epson UC K3 inks. I do not have the hardware to do my own printer profiles. QTR comes with a few, but very few, profiles for the photo black ink. I do not plan on printing on matte or watercolor paper. So I have several questions:
Is it possible that there are curves that other individuals have made for this printer that they would share or make available for purchase? If so, where?
Also, the cure/profile names are a bit cryptic. I can figure out a few of them. Where could I get a 'key' to these names? Or possibly would someone here know what they meant? Examples:
UCpk-IlfordSmooth-neut. Obviously this is Ultra Chrome photo black on Alford Smooth neutral tone. But which Ilford Smooth? There are 4 'smooth' papers in their Galerie Prestige line. Can I assume it is the Smooth Gloss?
UCpk-raw-neut. Is this just a generic curve? If so, would a generic QTR curve give me any better results than Epson ABW or system level color management?
The only other curve is for Museo Silver Rag, so just a total of three (each with 4 tones).
Sorry for all the dumb questions. Just a novice trying to work my way up. Thanks.
