New 3800
« on: December 09, 2007, 01:17:39 AM »

Just set up my new 3800 with my new Dell flat screen monitor.  

With the old monitor and printer I had absolutely no problems getting a close match between monitor image and printed image.  But I'm stuck with the new setup.

Yes, I've calibrated the monitor.  

Any thoughts?  Thanks.

If you haven't already you might want to try the From Camera to Print tutorial sold on this website.

Agree on this one.

I also was confused by the whole printing workflow. Camera to print was more than helpful to let me understand all technical stuff. Also they go throu Epson printers very well.

I guess I have saved alot money just learning from the tutorial.

Cheers,
Daniel

Are you also using ICC profiles? And if so, are they created by you or are they the canned profiles from Epson or the paper company from the paper you use? And I also would highly recommend the camera to print tutorial as the others have.

Yes, using the profiles from Epson and/or Red River for their papers.  

Other than paper profiles is there such a thing as a printer profile that matches the printer to the monitor?

Thanks.

Qimage uses both printer and monitor profiles. You could try the demo version. Otherwise, are you softproofing? (Qimage has always given me a close match, so I've never bothered, but after seeing the Camera to Print tutorial I'll be less lazy :-) )Cheers, David

If you want the closest printer/monitor match, you need to softproof, there is not going around it... And i agree with everybody that says you HAVE to watch From camera to print, it will show everything your need to know...
