PPOC-BC LMB presents Colour Management & Fine Art Printing

March 18 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

This talk will cover printing with pigment-ink based archival inkjet printers, such as the Canon PRO-1000 and PRO-2000.

Some of the topics discussed will be:

– Longevity differences between dye-based and pigment-based inkjet prints. Quick comparison to other printer technology such as dye-sublimation, laser, traditional RA-4 photo paper (LightJet prints) and so on.

– Discussion of differing paper types, how dye and pigment inks interact with the various coatings, and the resulting differences in image quality and colour-gamut, print durability and overall print longevity.

– Colour-management and ICC profile use with images, displays and output devices.

– Discussion of colour gamut differences between display and output devices, and how that can effect your perception of print colour accuracy.

– Overview of calibrating your camera’s raw files using an X-Rite ColorChecker Passport.

– Overview of display calibration procedures.

– Quick overview of printer calibration techniques.

– Custom printer calibration versus commercially available free ICC profiles: are custom profiles worthwhile?

– How to soft-proof your prints and check for output gamut limitations on your monitor with Photoshop and Lightroom.

– How to ensure you are using the correct printer driver settings for a given ICC profile.
