Custom Printer/Paper ICC Profiles

Recommended Posts

Advertisement (gone after registration)

I'm using a recently purchased ColorMunkiPhoto to create custom printer (Epson R2400) and paper profiles. Unfortunately, I don't know how to access/display the Printer Dialog Box (to turn off printer color management, adjust resolution and paper types, etc.) before printing and scanning the Test Charts. So far, neither Epson nor X-rite technical support have been able to provide useful guidance. Can anyone help? Thanks.

I had similar trouble when I first installed my printer.

Drove me crazy:

 

If you are on a mac os x, when you click on file>print in various programs, you will see a box showing the choice/name of the printer and just to the right of the name two little up and down arrows which are used to open the list for choosing the printer if you have more than one. Just to the right of the box is a down arrow with no label which is easy to confuse with the printer choice function arrows. Click on that down arrow and low and behold, the whole dialog box expands to show the printer options including turning on/off color adjustment in the printer driver.

Michael, I understand that - and am using Mac OS-X (10.6.2). However, when in the ColorMunki software, "File" is not available either in the top toolbar or in the program.

Ok. Here is how it works for me.

When I fire up colormunki, I close the window that would let you choose to learn more about various things. Then I am at the main colormunki menu. There are about 4 options; I choose: Profile my Printer.

I may see a list of instructions about the steps to profile the printer. One of the steps is to turn the color adjustment off in the printer driver dialogue box.

That is sort of confusing because it seems to imply you must have already done that or go someplace to do it before you continue. Actually, you get to the place to do that when you continue thru the process. Therefore read those instructions (but do nothing) and then click next/continue. Then I am at a page where I choose to make a new profile, choose which of my printers I want to profile and name my paper. The paper name is one I make up as a 'nickname' for the paper I will be using and this will end up in the filename of the profile.

 

Then I click 'next'. I see a little picture of a color chart pointed to a printer. I make sure, 'I already have a target' is _unchecked_, and click 'print'. That brings up the dialogue box with the confusing down arrows I described in my previous post, and when you click on the right unlabeled down arrow, it opens up the printer driver dialogue box and that is where you turn of color adjustment.

 

Hope this helps.

Michael,

Thanks for your explanation. After many tries, I got the same guidance from ColorMunki tech. support. The key is to click on the large, downward-facing arrow to the right of the block showing the printer; then the printer driver adjustments are available.

Even with monitor (ColorMunki) calibrated to 80 luminance, I can only adjust mine down to about 92. So, I need to increase brightness & contrast in order for the print to approximate the original image shown on the monitor.

Thanks, again.

      Let me starts the ball rolling.

      Where are icc stored in C1
      For Windows, C1 recognizes all icc files stored in the following folders. Adhere to correct icc naming convention  to avoid confusion. For Mac, the icc file is with default file extension .icc. They can be renamed and used interchangeably.
      1. C:\Users\JC\AppData\Local\CaptureOne\Color Profiles  (hidden folder, for long-term custom icc storage)
      2. C:\Windows\System32\spool\drivers\color (for testing, temporary custom icc storage)
      3. C1 system installed folder, Not recommend
      Leica T exposure with lens TL-23 and with Filmtype Standard
      To minimize highlight clipping, I always set the exposure compensation at -2/3 stop. I wonder if this is the practice with Leica T. 
      With C1, for minor exposure adjustment,  I prefer to use a tone curve. For simplicity, use the above custom icc instead of C1 Generic icc. 
      Note that tone curve adjustment does not modify the raw exposure. For this custom icc, only the tone curve in C1 Generic icc was changed. 
      😊 Your suggestions are most welcome.

      Dear Forum Members:
       
      It is my first day here and I am already so happy that there is so much to learn and every one is sharing knowledge so enthusiastically.
       
      I had a question about old lenses. On most lenses, when I move the focus to infinity, the barrel stops and I know this is the end of focus.
       
      But the Telyt 280mm f/4.8 lens I have got (series number is 234XXXX) goes beyond infinity and extends to the m/feet mark. I am attaching a photo explaining the problem.

      I have two questions:
       
      Is this normal?
        I am guessing that the Telyt 280mm f/4.8 lens does not couple with the rangefinder. In that case, I am going to be using the live-view any way.

      Let's say, this is a calibration issue with the lens. Eventually, it should work out with the live view mode, right? Or could this calibration error mean that my camera won't focus in the right range, ever.

      Hello
       
      Do you have any experience with X-Rite ColorChecker and creating color profiles for Leica M camare (M10, MD (Type 262)?
       
      How do they work for the Leica M10, Leica 262 - dual illumination profile and a single illumination profiles?
      Can dula illuminets profile be used for general purpous (like in Lightroom Adobe standard profile)? Or is better to create several individual profiles?
       
      Is it worth it to produce profiles with ColorCecher (X-Rite) or is it better to use the Adobe Standard for General Use - for best colors and general purpous for Leica M?  
      Your experience?
       
      I use Lightroom clacic cc and Adobe standard profile.
      New Adobe color profile is too contrasting to begin with (for my taste).
       
      Any experience, advice, whatever would happen to me.
       
      I apologize if any question is pointless, but I do not have much experience, andI would like to get them.
       
      Thanks in advance.
      Best wishes.
       
      Tomaz.

      A quick question:
       
      performing "save profile to card" will save all camera user profiles on the card or just the one i use?
       
      Thank you for help.
