What profiles do and don’t do

Printer profiles, screen matching and making better photo prints. Colour management and ICC profile.

How the right ICC printer profiles help you make better and more consistent prints of your photos. Why printer profiles don’t make all papers look the same and why your choice of paper has so much bearing on the final look of the print.

Colour management gives you more consistent and repeatable results, but you still need to appreciate how different papers will change the look of your images.

This and understanding that a print will never match a screen give a greater freedom to decide on how your final photo will look. The advantages of thinking of the screen view as just an intermediate step.
