icc colour profiles and soft proofing
« on: April 03, 2013, 05:42:29 PM »


I prefer matt fine art papers to Baryta/gloss etc and print mostly on B&W. I do however print in colour occasionally and have spent some time experimenting with papers. After some advice from online papers I have bought some Museo Max, and so far I can't see nay real advantage over some of my other papers, early days. BUT when I look at images for colour Gamut, museo max is low in comparison to epson Cold Press and HFA museum Etching for example. Are these indicators a complete waste of time regarding icc profiles ? (I have seent he digitagog videos and appreciate the potential benefit of not adjusting in LR to deal with the out of gamut 'red') But either I have been 'had' or Museo Max and LR4 don't talk the same language ?!

Depending on how the profile was made and how the profile gamut is evaluated, the gamut plot can tell you little about how to select a paper.
