New to DXO 6 and not done any prints of my images for around 5 years, forgotten everything.
I have a calibrated (with i1 Gretag Macbeth) Benq monitor.
Used to have a cannon printer and the correct icc profiles for my Ilford smooth pearl paper, paper still in stock and loved at the time.
Now have an Epsom ET-2711 tank printer, the only problem is I do not have a matching icc profile for the paper and Ilford do not provide for the Epson. I have tried printing a calibration sheet, but the colours are dull compared to my monitor.
Any ideas as to how I can manually adjust the images in DXO for printing, if not, how do I get an icc profile made without buying expensive kit?
again - do research before buying anything … specifically process, software ( you might end up using Argyll - so check vs the specific model / revision of what you are buying , specifically if rebranded like ES-1000, ES-2000, etc ) and make sure used device comes with a calibration tile matching it (serial number-wise)
Ilford don’t do that because the Epson ET-2177 printer is not considered to be a ‘photo quality’ printer. Yes, it will print photos but it only has four inks whereas ‘photo quality’ printers have a minimum of six inks.
Also, many users on this forum are of the opinion that PL’s print feature is rather poor and consequently print using other applications.
