Canon IPF8400 and Canon plug-in for Photoshop
« on: August 05, 2022, 05:01:40 am »

Hi,
I bought a Canon IPF8400 printer second hand and have serious problems with profiling my papers. When I use i1Profiler and print the test chart out of there using all the correct paper settings I'm getting a very unsaturated print and the resulting profile is useless. When I save the i1Profiler test chart as a TIFF and then print it with the Prograf print plug-in with no color correction set I get a perfect printout with which I can create a very good profile but when I select that profile in the canon print plug-in I get the following message: The selected profile is an ICCv4 profile. OK to continue using the OS standard CMM as-is?
Can someone please help.
Cheers,
Ralf

Try using a V2 profile instead of v4 as some applications may have problems handling V4

Hi again,
found my own answer. Save as V2 instead of V4

Don't make V4 profiles! They don't do anything useful and sometimes don't play nice with some software programs.
