Not only do I want good printer profiles, I want to understand what’s going on. There is an admittedly steep learning curve on this and I freely admit that I am on the early and steep part. I’m trying to use ColorThink to gain insight. I’ve made some print profiles for my Epson 3800 and have been graphing them. Learned some interesting things like, Epson Hot Press Natural, a fine art matte paper shows greater high luminance gamut (not sure if that’s a proper term, feel free to correct me…)in the yellows than my favorite Baryta paper, the Ilford Galerie Gold Fiber silk.
All that aside, my question regards the plots. The 2d plot shows some jagged edges, while the 3d plot is smoother in all areas, more of what I expected.
Why the jagged edges? Does this suggest that the profile can be easily improved or operator error on my part?
