RE: filmscanners: Printing: Settings, calibration & whatever
I recently went through the same thing with my Epson 980. I suggest (as a
starting point) to scan in Vuescan using sRGB, work in Adobe in sRGB and
then print to the Epson 1270 using sRGB. Make sure you go to the
Custom/Advanced/ page of the page setup dialog and check the sRGB box.
After months of trying to get prints to match this works for me. Undeerstand
that you will be giving up some gamat range, but as I said, to get start,

Subject: filmscanners: Printing: Settings, calibration & whatever
I've gotten a lot of very helpful information here that has allowed me to
develop the quality of both my scans (mostly using Vuescan on my Minolta
Scan Dual II) and the editing / adjusting of those scans in Photoshop 6. The
biggest problem I have is getting something to come out of my printer that
even vaguely resembles what I see on screen. I've calibrated my monitor
using the Adobe utility but get prints that are consistently, sometimes
significantly flat, especially in the blue range, but generally overall.
Admittedly, I have an older, 1440 dpi Epson and lust for a new 1270 but I
know I must be missing something.
I've been using the Adobe RGB colorspace both from Vuescan and in
Photoshop - I don't pretend to know what is 'best' here' since I'm perfectly
satisfied with what I'm producing on screen and for the web. I've printed on
both Kodak and Epson high gloss, photo quality paper with the corresponding
paper / print quality settings in my printer software.
I'd appreciate any suggestions / recommendations for getting print results
that more closely resemble what I see on the monitor.
