Hi Kevin! I follow the colorsync-users list (subject: Device Link Profiles & Monaco Profiler Platinum) and know that you are setting up a proofing process, right? Try: collink -v -fk -G -ia -cpp -dpp -kt -l400 -L100 input.icc proofer.icc input2prooferDL.icc Notes: - You're proofing using Kodak Approval? Then if you are able to proof on actual print paper use -ir instead. - I would also give -kx a try. Possibly generating a proof less prone to negative metameric effects. Use -kp for custom black generation. Beware, setting -kp is a battle of trial-and-error iterations (at least for me :-)).
