Windows PrintFab with Lightroom 5

I am trying PrintFab Beta 0.95 on a Windows 7 Professional 64 bit computer using Lightroom 5 and an Epson 3880 printer. I printed an image from a RAW file using the Print tab in Lightroom 5 and it was a good match to what I see on the computer monitor. I selected to the Develop tab in Lightroom 5 an...

Re: Epson 3880 Paper Profiles

I received feedback from X-Rite that says ColorMunki Photo was designed to work with the printer driver, and it does work correctly generating a RGB profile with the Epson driver. It apparently will not work with PrintFab since it considers it is a CMYK printer. I don't understand why it is working ...

Re: Epson 3880 Paper Profiles

Is it possible for me to change the PPD postscript printer description file? Does some input I set in the printer preferences of PrintFab determine which of the two values is used in the PPD postscript printer description file? In the Color Tab I set Color Mode to Color (RGB), Dithering is Error Dif...

Re: Epson 3880 Paper Profiles

I am communicating with someone on the DPReview forums that is using PrintFab (Mac version) with an Epson 3880 and generating RGB profiles with ColorMunki Photo without any problems. I have set PrintFab up the same, but can only get ColorMunki Photo to generate CMYK color charts. Does this indicate ...

Re: Epson 3880 Paper Profiles

I tried again to generate an RGB profile with ColorMunki Photo for the Epson 3880 using PrintFab Beta 0.93 on a Windows 7 Professional 64 bit system. Color mode is set to Color (RGB), Dithering is Error Diffusion, Intent is No Correction (print profile chart), and Color Space is ProPhoto RGB. ColorM...

Re: Epson 3880 Paper Profiles

I used ColorMunki to generate a profile for PrintFab using the steps your suggested. When I tried to use the profile in Lightroom, it would not display the profile even though it is in the correct folder. I did a little searching and found that Lightroom will not display CMYK profiles. It does displ...

Re: Epson 3880 Paper Profiles

I now see the topic you listed on generating profiles for PrintFab. I will review that to see what I am doing wrong.

Re: Epson 3880 Paper Profiles

I did print the color chart using PrintFab for the profile that I imported into the PrintFab profile. I did a second color chart using the Epson driver and used it with the Epson driver and it worked great. I have not found any instructions on how to generate profiles for PrintFab, can you be more s...

Re: Epson 3880 Paper Profiles

I tried a second time to generate printer profiles for PrintFab with an Epson 3880 printer using ColorMunki Photo, but after importing it to PrintFab profile a print using it has problems. Colors maybe acceptable, but the print is very dark. I am using the Windows version of PrintFab on a computer u...

Epson 3880 Paper Profiles

I downloaded the windows version of PrintFab to use with my Epson 3880 printer, but no paper profiles for PrintFab are available. Where can I download PrintFab profiles for the Epson papers?
