And more importantly, Chris, if we bribe you appropriately will you produce an outtakes reel?

Up to this point, I have been using a 2 page 1053 patch target (I added 50 patches to an existing target) with PM 5 (probably upgrading to i1Profiler) and it seems to be working well. Would be interested to hear what Michael and Jeff have to say on the subject of profiling with X-Rite software.

Ideally, 16.7 million color patches. Then there’s no extrapolation used to build the profile from the measured data. Obviously that would take a bit of ink, media and time <g>. The profile itself would be huge.

Depends on the software, instrument, device being profiled etc. I’d rather use 1485 patches, two sizes per target, rotated 90 and 180 degrees and from a few dozen pulls off a press than one target with one patch size that has 10000 patches! For an ink jet, 1500 to 3000 is usually going to do the job, there’s a point of diminishing return.

Have not got the time to read all the requests, so if these points are already included thats a plus.

I have the first series and I don't recall anything about head height or platen gap/vacuum settings and how they are catered for in todays printers.

Specific to head strike issues with different papers, and the amount of ink applied, ghosting , etc.

Do the media settings actually do anything much? I was told by one techie at a show that head height set to auto meant effectively it never moved regardless of media setting.

Lets assume some user input and experimentation. How to judge if these mechanical setting are spot on?

I use a Canon iPF6100 and think I am missing a trick by not experimenting more but worry about moving off the default line.

The last series concentrated on Adobe products. OK but a nod to others like the Canon plugin and other solutions would help. The Canon 9500pro has the test pattern option to print out colour and brightness plus a contrast sheet to nail those difficult images. Is there another software solution that can do this?

Regards

Don`t have any idea if this would be possible but I would like to be able to step across a print with variations of sharpness levels so you could zero in on what level of sharpness would work best for the image.You could make five different two inch wide strips of sharpness levels on an 8x10 crop of say a 30x45 inch print.Does this make sense?
