Having some trouble getting a profile on this epson canvas, prints are turning out very dark. Does the eye one’s measurement of charts take into account glare from off the canvas, or is this a non-issue when profiling?
Have any of you had work arounds for printing on canvas, and getting it to resemble say enhanced matte?
Printing on epson 4000, 7600 using ultrachrome inks.
Canvas can be a problem as can laminated materials. Chances are that what you are seeing is caused by excessive scattering of light from the surface of the canvas. Very little light coming back to the i1 results in dark readings.
We use a polarizing filter on a Spectrolino to take these readings. It tends to be very slow taking the readings but is able to compensate for the scattering. It also gets much better detail in the shadows.
