I've been a reader here on and off for some time and thought I'd take the opportunity of your wisdom...
I have a good understanding about color management and have a good workflow summarized as; Calibrated monitor, LR4 to import/process RAW files, PShop CS6 to prepare the file for print, soft-proof and print. I use a Z3100, with either a standard or my own profile (depending on paper) and the printer is regularly calibrated.
What I am looking for is information on how to get the most of the printer itself. I have read books/articles and watched the LL video, etc but I always find they are missing the practical elements. For example, I can make a printer profile, perform a calibration then print out a test print - but what do I actually do if I find something I would like to improve. For example, if shadows are a little plugged or colors look off, do I re-profile with different setting (more ink, less ink, different paper types, etc)? What should I do?
I know some of this is printer-specific but is there a good source of practical information anyone could recommend (internet, book, video, etc)?
