I’m about to use my X-Rite Pulse system (purchased from Chromix ;o) for the first time and am hoping someone with experience can provide a little advice. The main issue is this: when printing targets from my Epson 4000 (Photoshop CS2) on a variety of third party matte fine art papers I need to know which driver paper setting is most appropriate. I’m testing on Hahnemuhle Photo Rag, Moab Entrada Natural, Epson Ultrasmooth Fine Art, and Premier Hot Press.
Possible appropriate choices in the Epson driver seem to be:
Enhanced Matte, Watercolor Radiant White, Smooth Fine Art, Textured Fine Art, Velvet Fine Art
So which choices for which papers? Is there some kind of test file that might show the paper settings that are best for each paper I’m testing or is there one best choice for matte papers?
Also, there’s a check box for “Finest Detail”. I remember reading somewhere that checking this isn’t necessary for matte papers. I’ve been printing on matte for a quite a while with this box unchecked, but since I’m printing all these targets and am going to profile them I’m wondering if there’s an advantage to leaving this checked.
