[QUOTE=jon;7909]This is not a profile that you use at all. This is purely a profile that your operating system uses in reference to the calibration of your Eizo using the Eizo Color Navigator software. Your operating system loads this for use in communicating to the display.
Your images can be converted to grayscale but must be converted using the Gamma 2.20 profile and you can see how to setup Photoshop to do this in this small movie here: http://www.piezography.com/PiezoPress/easy-to-use/
Never use ProPhoto profiles unless you wish to image in a theoretical workspace that is too large for any printing system that uses pigment or dye ink. ProPhoto can not even be displayed in its entirety on your Eizo (which barely covers Adobe RGB 1998). Export all images for printing to Adobe RGB 1998 whether using our system or printing to OEM color inks and your life will begin to superlatize! ProPhoto has an internal Gamma of 1.0 which is scientific gamma related to sensors. Humans need contrast to see light to dark in a perceptually logical manner and even Lightroom has to convert ProPhoto to Gamma 2.20 in order to deal with this phenomena. ProPhoto RGB is like the container of Space infinitum. We know its out there but we can’t actually see the ends and have only an inkling of the beginning. Adobe RGB 1998 is a bit more like Earth and our atmosphere and all we need to breath, make babies, live and die happily. Anything more would be greedy and really unattainable. How’s that for a description on ProPhoto that probably everyone else will disagree with. But, if you can’t see it or print it, why use it other than to satisfy a hypothetical? It’s best for use with raw images and that’s where it belongs and should remain. Once you hit the real world of imaging and printing - got to stay within your means…
YOU Must adhere to our Gamma 2.20 workflow as outlines in the New Piezography Manual - or the output will be disrupted.
Now that your display is calibrated - you can use Soft Proof profiles to pre-visualize (and that takes some getting used to). These work best adjacent to a dimming 5000k viewing booth. You can get an uncanny match.[/QUOTE]
Hi Jon and thanks for reply.
Seems i may have miss used the term profile, i was referring to the profile created when calibration the monitor using the Eizo Color Navigator software, of which you can create a number of.
Your explanation of Prophoto is informative, but you end with saying it should only be used for raw! Which brings me back to my original question.
Would i create and load monitor calibration profile that is set for prophoto for editing raw images, but once exported change the monitor profile to piezography specific monitor profile ?
i always work in 2.2 gamma so that is not a problem.
When creating the monitor profile for piezography will i need to change or set any of the options i mentioned in OP?
