I have not read the target yet and will do so tomorrow.  However, here is what 
I used for the i1 pro.

 

targen -v -d0 -G -e1 -f51 51_ABW  (I set the number of white patches to 1 with 
the '-e' command knowing that for an i1 with letter size paper, three rows of 
21 will be created and you will get extra white patches anyway)

 

printtarg -v -ii1 -t100 -pLetter 51_ABW (I don't see any reason to print using 
higher than 100dpi for profile targets.  This gives me a nice target of three 
rows to read and you have plenty of space to print out a second randomized 
chart if you want by just feeding the paper in a second time, remembering to 
reverse it).

 

I'll use the chartread command that I already listed below to read the chart 
and get the values.  This can then be used by the QTR-Create-ICC.exe  to create 
the profile.  It looks like this should be pretty straightforward as compared 
to color profiling.

Alan,

Would you mind shering how exactly did you prepare the
51 step wedge using targen??

or maybe if the whole process will work out  U could  prepare a simple tutorial 
for those of us (
like me) that just recenty started digging deep (using argyll) into colour 
profiling;]

Uli,

Thanks.  Just as you were posting I was looking at the options for
'chartread' and I figured this out as well.  It's easy enough to prepare the
51 step wedge using targen and then move through the Argyll tools to read
it.  I'm going to give this method a try.  I just use the following command
to read the file:  chartread -v -l 51_step_ti2  This then gives me a ti3
file that I can open in Excel and sort for use in QTR.

Hi,

it's relatively simple to read the 51-step wedge with chartread (you
must have a *.ti2) and i1Pro: you have to measure Lab data, the results
you have to sort (for L) and then you may save only the Lab data as
*.txt file. A sample file may only have text like this:
