Clear definition what works/doesn't with external ICC

Post by smile » Wed Oct 12, 2011 8:29 pm

Hi, I suggest you to update the user guide, and make a section about what doesn't work if external ICC profile is created by a third party.
The current use guide has some information, but it is scattered all over the place, very hard to keep track of. When I read all user guide I really could not remember all features that will not work if a third party profile is used.

A FAQ answer on your website would be proper way to answer the question too.

Thank you.

2 Years have passed and still no improvements.

Just guessing ? Sell the program relatively cheap and earn money with unique printer profiles?
The problem is even if PrintFab trial is extended second time for a full year the ICC profiles support on WINDOWS is miles ahead of MAC or LINUX.

My numerous tests on various printers were showing better gradations with OEM printer driver than PrintFab. The InkLimiting sure helps but if they gradients are printed with less dots then InkLimitting does not matter.

It's not only lack of information, the settings windows seem to be bugged in this regard also. When first accessed, they show some controls which are turned off for a second time. Anyway, PrintFab is giving me great results. After lowering the ink limit to 200% (the default value of 250 is too much for most papers I have experimented) and profiling normal paper using i1Pro/i1Profiler combination, the profile gamut is even better than the one achieved with OEM drivers. With the additional advantage that it becomes available for any non color managed software.

I hope PrintFab gets better, since there are currently too many bugs to tolerate for a commercial release.
