| p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Spyder3 Print SR - color chart printing Canon 9500 Mk II |
I have recently decided to try and create my own color profiles (ICC) for my printer Canon Pixma 9500 Mark II. Using (Datacolor) Spyder3 Print SR (s/w version 4.2.2) following the instruction the end result are terrible!? All the shadows are blocked and high-lites blown just two extremes no real middle ground (B&W). The software (spyder3) actually shown this in the softproof window, so actually it printed the way it indicated emoticon - smile just not how that sample photo actually looked...
The printing of the chart is done through the Spyder3 software and before printing I am able to go to the printer preferences and change the color matching to none. I did allow the paper/ink (Red River GreenPix Matte) to set for about an hour before reading the color patches. Now if I use the ICC file from RR all is good again.
Is there something I am missing or doing wrong? Any suggestion, corrections or ideas are more than welcomed.
Thanks in advance.
