I found something which appears to do exactly what Tom Lianza writes about
(see below where I reference his newsgroup post)


I have not tried it, but looking at the product description of Ultra Links
1.0, that's exactly the operation which I understood Tom to mean.

Subject: Question regarding gamut mapping for photographic images

Referring to this extract from a post to newsgroup sci.engr.color by
tlianza, in thread "Chromacities of digital photo-exposer":

"The final reproduction gamma of a reproduced 
image from an sRGB image through a Frontier printer should have a relative 
gamma of 1.2 to 1.6 and the extremes of  sRGB should be mapped to the 
extremes of print material.  Anything less than that will yeild an image 
that appears flat and lifeless when viewed at interior lighting conditions."

URL for the complete message: 

Can I achieve this when I create a printer profile with Argyll? Is this, in
fact, simply what a perceptual intent normally does?

p.s Currently waiting for my sRGB perceptual tables to compute, for a "high"
quality profile. It's very, very, VERY slow! ;^)
