Re: Mis K4 color and epson 1400 ?
- Hello Paul and other members of this group
no ideas ?
In the message bellow I was talking of curves, but in fact Paul used an adjustment layer under photoshop.
Have a nice day

Today most of the profiling systems have strip readers so that making a profile using them is not so burdensome. As such, I'm quite sure that would be the preferable way to go. My experiment with just neutralizing the grayscale with curves worked OK for casual printing, but the higher gamut colors were not very accurate. My approach was influenced mostly by my desire to have a good neutral zone in the prints, the lack of a strip reader, and the poor quality of the color profile I'd made using manual reading and a 250 patch target.
Good luck with the approach.
