Robert you do have to understand that there are certain differences that cannot be overcome when comparing the image on your monitor compared to your print etc etc.
Thanks Tony. I totally
understand this. And you are right, it would be a good idea to find a way to "calibrate" my expectations which are based largely on what I have read.
That being said, I am reasonably happy with the latest results (with the paper simulation turned off) and can only expect them to improve with a better monitor.
But I do have a question... and perhaps the Digital Dog can chime in here as well... that is more motivated by curiosity and my recent (in fact quite decent) comparison results.
My understanding is that a printer profile is based on a specific combination of printer, paper and ink. Doesn't that mean that the printer profile implicitly
takes into account whatever the "simulate paper and ink" button does? If not, what is the profile profiling when the option is not selected? How can the colorimeter that is used to create the profile possibly not take the paper into account? In other words am I not in effect double counting by selecting the option ? If I need both the profile and the paper simulation, why does LR make paper simulation an option and where does it get the information from if not from the profile?
Ok that's more than one question but its all the same theme.
Thanks for your help.
