Hello Nikolay,

I would like to ask you and other people who have already experiences using
targen to create test target values for proofing purposes in practice, which
targen options you normally use.
After I've read the threads about the targen option in Argyll's archive, I
still don't know really which of the option might be the best to use if one
wants to create an inkjet printer profile.
I'm talking about the default option (OFPS) - with the result of mostly dark
patches, the -R option which gives patches with a perceptual space
distribution and the -c option using a previous profile.
Before I'm spending not little time measuring about 3,000 patches it would
be a great help to get some practical advice.
