Using the same TIF and source TXT file, getting wildly different scanner ICC profiles from different programs. I've tried argyll, basiccolor, scarse, lprof, coca, Profile Maker, Profile Prism, and I think a few others.
How does one evaluate which one is best, and choose which one to use?
I scanned an IT8 printed on reflective Fuji paper sold by Wolf Faust, who seems to have a great reputation.
This image is created by Color Think. I set all the profiles to wireframe so you could see through them. The easiest thing to look at is the 2D tracing on the "floor" in the image, because in the 3D space, there's just too much to see what's going on. (Obviously, something's out of wack with the one that contains a wedge in it in the bottom left.)
(As a total side note, how does this scanner's color space rate against others?)
