device links

I have a destination and source profile that produce good results. If I put both profiles into colorthink and create a device link the proof has a delta e difference in some squares of 8.

Apparently something else is happening when the two profiles are linked together either by colorthink or by the rip.

I am using absolute as the rendering intent when I make the link or when I use the profiles together in the rip.

Any thoughts


I know this is an old post, but if you’re using absolute then the differences you are seeing could just mean that the outside of the gamut is 8 dEs away from one device/profile to the other, right?

Unless the squares you are referring to are within the gamut of both devices in which case I have no idea what is going on. Are you sure you’re using the linked profile correctly?
