In my work with ICC profiling over the years. I’ve come across and interesting
phenomenon (not just with Argyll but with other softwares). I don’t see it
often but when it rears its head I see it.
When building ICC profiles for uncoated papers and inkjet printers (let’s say
the lowest L* value is something like L24) I see almost an over-doing of the
Black Point Compensation. Photoshop values (0-255) that were 0,1, or 2, jump
all the way to 5 or up to 10 when soft-proofing (and printing) with these ICCs.
There is a measurable and resulting loss of dMax in the print.
Does anyone know of a way to lower the BPC “amount” using argyll or is this
something that is just inherent with various application’s use of BPC? I’m on
Mac (PS,Lightroom,ColorSync, etc).
