I’m printing on an Epson 1280 and having difficulty getting a good profile for Epson HWM paper. I lose detail in the shadow areas, especially browns. I ran Dry Creek’s ink density target to determine best media and DPI settings. It shows that the best ink distribution for HWM paper is Photo RPM (what does that mean anyway beyond the rez of 5760 dpi?) on ColorLife Photo Paper as the media type. I’ve also received advice to print the i1 RGB 1.5 for HWM paper so I’ve done that. I’ve just completed scanning the profile and it doesn’t produce any better results that the canned profile that came with the printer for HWM paper.
I know these are sketchy details, but does anyone see anything radically wrong with the process I’ve described?
