I asked about the profile modification on the blog where the article was published a couple of days ago. I have not received a reply. From this I can conclude that it is either:

1 Secret sauce which isn't to be shared with mere mortals
2 A bit of puff to add gravitas

I am always interested in anything that can improve my prints. That is the only reason that I asked.

Jeff, I did not see your question - sorry about that.

The article was not intended to be a step by step "how to" - it was rather a summary of the steps I went through to make the print without a deep dive on each aspect. An explanation of profile modification was well beyond the scope of the article. And its subsequently been covered by Mark in this thread in any case.

Secret sauce.. isn't that what goes on Hamburgers?

Thanks Josh. I agree that it may be beyond your scope but the words are dangerous nonetheless. Talking of modifying profiles flies in the face of commonly accepted wisdom is going to pique interest, mine anyway. I have been told of it many times but have never seen it done, and never had an explanation.

Regardless of this, thanks for the article. It's always good to see articles on printing.
