Short Printing Tips


Using Epson Premium Semigloss Photo Paper with the 1270

recommended by Uwe Steinmueller

To be honest I did not very much investigate into a proper calibration of my 1270 and use a simple procedure. All my photos from the D1 are stored using the Adobe RGB profile workspace and I also use a profiled monitor. On printing from Photoshop I use the sRGB printing workspace and set also the 1270 to use sRGB. So far I am pleased with the results but would not claim perfect color accuracy.

Most of the time I use the heaviweight matte paper from Epson as I do not like that much the reflection of glossy paper. A very good way in between seems for me the Premium Semigloss Photo Paper.

I know there is a lot of discussion about longevity of 1270 prints. For me these prints are more like proofs. If I need prints for sale and also larger formats I would use LightJet prints from Calypso Color.

Printer Profiles

Olympus P-400: Sorry I have to report that I did not succeed in making a good profile for this printer. The resulting photos are very pleasing though not really color correct.

Or use "same as source" profile for Adobe RGB working space instead.
