After struggling for a long time to get acceptable ink jet prints, I resolved to get it right once and for all. An Xrite Colormunki is in use to profile my monitor and Epson R3000 printer. Still, prints do not match the monitor and some prints are way off only to end up in the trash. All the research I have done lately points to the monitor as the culprit.
After a lot of research, I have decided to upgrade to a NEC PA271W-BK-SV monitor. Since this monitor is 10 bit capable, as is much of my workflow, it seemed to make sense to make it all 10 bit. Thats when I hit a wall, namely Lightroom 4 which is not 10 bit capable and cannot even read a 10 bit psd file. As such, Lightroom 4 is useless, even counterproductive in a 10 bit workflow. After investing heavily in Lightroom lately, I would hate to abandon it. Hopefully, Lightroom 5 will support 10 bit color. I doubt that I am the first person to encounter this dilemma so how do you structure your 10 bit workflow?
