Re: filmscanners: Custom ICC printer profiles

I too have wasted much time, ink and paper trying to make
custom profiles using ProfilerRGB. I gave up and was using
the Epson profiles. Then I got a custom profile made by
CDTobie. The custom profile gives me an excellent monitor
to Epson 1270 print match. I'm on a PC using Epson
ink & Epson Archival Matte Paper. I'd urge anyone
having problems with 'homemade' flat bed scanner
based profiles to consider trying a professionally made
custom profile.
