To Get a Print Profile.
1. Before you start this workshop you will need to download the "i1
RGB 1.5.tif" file. To download this file click on the "i1 RGB
1.5.tif" target file image below. You will then get a message saying
"Do you want to open or save this file". Click "Save".
You will then be asked where you would like to save this file. Save the
file in a convenient location on your computer where you will be able
to find it at a later stage in this workshop. Click "Save".
The download process will start. The file you are downloading is 975kb
in size, so the download times will vary depending on your internet connection
speed. When the file has downloaded you will get a message saying "Download
Complete", click "Close". If at any point when you are
saving the file a “Tiff Options” box appears, accept the default
settings of, Image Compression - None, Pixel Order – Interleaved
(RGBRGB), Byte Order – IBM PC. Click OK to continue. The file is
now downloaded onto your computer and ready to use. We will use this file
later in the workshop.
Step: 2. The next important thing to do is carry out a nozzle check on your printer. Please refer to your printer manual to carry out this task. The printer must produce a perfect nozzle check print before you continue.
3. We are now going to set our Colour Settings in Photoshop. To do this,
go to Edit>Colour Settings. In the Colour Settings dialog box select
“Custom” from the Settings drop down menu. In the Working
Space set the RGB by selecting “sRGB ICE61966-2.1” from the
drop down menu. (In past lectures and instructions we have been instructed
to use “Adobe RGB 1998” as a colour setting, but this is based
on industry standards and not for home users. Monitors are not capable
you have matched all the settings in the dialog box, click “Save”.
In the Save dialog box we need to give our new custom settings a file
name, I used “My Custom Settings 18-07-08”. I included the
date in my file name so I know when the settings were created. Click Save.
next dialog box to appear is the “Colour Settings Comments”.
Here you can make comments about your custom colour settings. I made a
quick comment on where these settings had come from. Make your own comment
or leave it blank. Click OK.
Colour Settings dialog box should now look like this (see below). Settings
will show your new custom settings name, and any comments you made will
appear at the bottom. Click OK to save and apply these new custom settings.
