Color Management: SilverFast can calibrate your printer

November 10th, 2010 · No Comments · HowTo, Photography Business, Photoshop, Printing, SilverFast

Printer profiles are an important component for any color managed digital imaging workflow. For color-true, predictable and reproducible prints you usually need an additional measuring device. Professional photographer David Brooks has now discovered how easily a printer can be profiled using a flatbed scanner and SilverFast software.

Mr. Brooks as a long-time SilverFast user recommends the SilverFast IT8 version with printer calibration option for quick and easy scanner and printer profiling. You calibrate your scanner using a LaserSoft Imaging IT8 target with just 2 mouse-clicks, you print a test chart with your printer, you scan the test chart with your scanner. That’s it.

David Brooks: “It is not cheap, but SilverFast is good and much easier to use and more efficient than Photoshop. So don’t be afraid to learn new software. Once you have you will appreciate the advantages. Personally, I just wish Adobe would learn something from LaserSoft Imaging or better still SilverFast would become a full replacement of Photoshop.”
