Thanks so much for sharing the experience.
You're welcome. And thanks to you for the Wiki!
It may be practical as sometimes its easier to test new paper in 8.5x11 sheets and as long as you get at least 25 sheets you've got enough to profile and play with.
These were 100-sheet boxes. Before my printer arrived I ordered samples from several different companies. I was disappointed to see that most companies included only 2 or 3 sheets of each type. Pretty useless as it turns out. Since they charged me for the samples, I wish they would have given me the option of paying a bit more and getting enough paper to be useful.
Let me know if this isn't clear. I'm happy to help.
I'm not sure what to enter for 'Perceptual Rendering' and 'Light Source'. I don't remember having to make either of these choices, and don't know enough yet to have made an intelligent choice anyway.
As I recall, perceptual rendering relates to intent in mapping from one color space to another, and light source would represent something like sunlight, incandescent , tungsten, etc. I'm not sure how D-number map to these (or if they do). Is this right?
I'm totally confused about color spaces and how RGB values relate to them. Once I've had a chance to read 'Color Confidence', which will be a while, I'll probably be back to ask pesky questions.
When I got into this, I knew there would be a lot of learning but I really had no idea how much! Good thing I can take my time and learn as I go...
