Hello all LULA people,
I have been helping a friend calibrate and profile his system. Monitor and printer. All has gone well but he is running a Mac, (I'm mostly a Windows man) and I could not find the adjustment for Platen gap. We are reproducing original paintings and printing to canvas.
Mac OS recent version
In Photoshop CS5, the print dialog box that pops up is not the usual Epson one, that I'm use to, but looks like its run under to OS? Maybe this is a Mac thing? I rewatched the LULA Screen to Print Videos and the box is the same.
The printer is an older 7600, he has run it for a couple of years but never had a good print output..we are printing to Breathing Color Chromata White, and using Spyder3, SpyderPro, to calibrate and profile. After a couple of runs and target prints we are very close to having a great screen, print, original. I would like to tweak it a bit more with a custom profile and adjust the platen gap.
Could anyone direct me to where the setting is for this? We are getting good results with the canned ICC profiles but I would like to make a custom profile but need to be able to adjust the platen. I realize one should be able to do so at the printer istself but if we can do it in the software we can save as a custom setting..right?
I would greatly appreciate any input..I have done some online searching, and on this site but not seen anything specific to this.
Thanks in advance for all the help!
All the best,
