I have been unsuccessful printing with the QTR-Print-Tool on Epson Exhibtion Fiber paper using an Epson 3880 without applying significant PS corrections. The prints appear to be about a stop dark. I have downloaded and installed the glossy profiles from your site.
Here are the tone-related options I am using in PS as I prepare to print:
View - Proof - Device to Simulate - Setup-QTR_RGB_PhotoPaper
Page Setup: Printer:Quad3880-K7
Print Options: PS Manages Color, Printer Profile - (I use the Epson Ex Fiber - don’t see the 3800-3880-MPS-EPexFiber option available in Curve 1) Rendering Intent - Perceptual, Black Point Compensation box checked
Last Print Page: Mode, QuadTone RIP 8-bit
Curve 1: 3800-3880-MSP-EPexFiber
Black Ink: Photo Ink
I am using a calibrated iMac display and have even turned the brightness down more. The calibrated settings work very well with an identical 3880 set up with Epson inks.
Your advices will be appreciated.
