I am having trouble with darkness in my prints, manly in the shadow area, if I look at the print in direct bright light it looks great and matches my monitor, but in “normal” viewing conditions the shadow area is too dark. I am using a Monaco XR pro to calibrate my monitor, and Pulse ColorElite to make custom profile for my iPF5000 printer (printing on both Red River UltraPro Satin and Canon Satin)
I am curious if the white/black luminance settings I am using in my monitor calibration can cause this? I have heard to set white anywhere from 85cd to 120cd and black I am not really sure where to start. I am using D65 for my white point.
When making my custom profiles I select daylight D50 and wasn’t sure what effect choosing a different setting (D65, cool white, etc)would have on the “brightness” of my prints
**my monitors are a Dell 2007 wfp and my laptop screen is a Dell D820 WXUGA
