I’m looking for some information on printing with a Indigo 5000 press. This is my first experience printing with the 5000. I used the canned profile from the HP site to soft proof the image in Photoshop. As requested by the printer the image was saved in RGB as a jpeg. A test was run. The color was surprisingly accurate. My problem is that the blacks/shadows are to dark. In photoshop, is there a recommended input/output setting for the shadows and highlights? I’m printing on 120 lb cover stock. I was told to put the settings at 0/255. Does the tonal range for the press really start at 0 and end at 255?
If anyone knows the answer or has any experience printing with the 5000 and can offer any other tips it would be greatly appreciated.
