Could anyone please give me a nice round-up, how to profile / characterize
my canon printer and paper?
Printer profiling is easy. Follow Graeme's usage documentation. The general
gist is as follows:
Fill the largest sheet you can work with with patches. On my iPF8100, I'll use
a sheet 11" high by the width of the paper. Be sure to specify the colorant
combination; an RGB printer is -d2.
When printing, be sure to use the same workflow (including settings) as you
would for real printing. You might face some challenges in turning off color
management; if so, the "null transform" trick seems pretty safe and universal.
Read the chart.
Create your profile with the default settings.
If you can only print on small sheets and you feel like you need more data
points, use a single sheet for the first pass through. Create a profile and
everything. Feed that profile to targen for "preconditioning." Create as many
additional sheets as you need and profile them all in one go. You can add in
the readings from your first sheet using Argyll's merge function or just a copy
/ paste with a couple edits in the .ti3 file.
