Sorry, I actually forgot I had started this thread:
What I want to do is replicate the color of one paper, on another brighter while paper
Jeff: PC so no ColorSync utility. Would love ColorThink, but can’t really justify the cost; although I have heard many say it has proved more useful than they though it would.
Andrew: I didn’t understand
Mark: I had thought of this, but when I tried it, the values seemed too neutral, the paper didn’t seem that gray. In 8-bit I got Lab(98,0,0), in 16 bit Lab(98,0,1), in 32 bit Covert to Profile… is grayed out. (Interestingly if I change the mode to 32 bit from either 8- or 16-bit, the image turns very, very pink.) I will try printing it on whiter paper and see what happens.
Ernst: No OBAs in the paper, but interesting points none-the-less.
Tyler: I get the same results as doing this a la Mark, and interestingly the same pink when doing it with a 32 bit file.
