I just wanted update my findings so far.
BTW, if anyone else has a similar environment and is running publish, I would appreciate it if they would test with their system and see
if they get the same results.
Paper Epson Luster 260W, Eye One Pro with UV cut, Publish software, target 1728 colors generated in Publish, printer 9880PK, Win7, or WinXP
What I am mainly interested in is to see how dark your targets print out. I have configured my target to 11.50 W x 11.00 H, as I recall this allows
for 15 colors per line and 4 targets total.
With Publish, really no matter what paper I choose, if I don't back off the ink density by 10%, then when reading the strips, I will not be able to
read the entire sheet, usually failing on line 16 and then having similar failures on at least 12 to 15% of all of the 91 strips. I am not sure where to
go here as I really don't feel that I should have to adjust the ink density to get a good read.
With Profile maker 5.0 (in demo mode), Under Measure I can read in a target that I had a friend make which is also 1728 colors. I have read these targets
on many papers, Silver Rag, Velvet Rag (BC), Platine Rag (Canson) Lexjet esatin, Epson PLPP260, EPson PGPP250W. All of these targets will read fine with
no errors. I can then save the measurement data as a txt file and open it in Publish and then create a profile. Most of these profiles seem OK, however IMO
not quite as good as profiles I had created in the past working with a unlocked version of Proflile maker.
I am just curious of anyone else can read native targets generated in publish on a 9880 PK ink in either Win7 or Mac 10.6 versions of Publish.
