    I just posted a new article with 2 videos on Epson Print Layout.  Software that truly makes it easy to make your own prints.  You can find it HERE.

    👍🏼 It even works with my good old R2880 (at least it recognizes it, I didn’t try to print yet)

    Don’t try opening a TIFF with zip compression.

    Does anyone else see that EPL and Photoshop don’t match when soft proofing to the same profile and settings?

    A reply from Dano . . .

    Soft proofing is never perfect and there may be some differences between Ps and Lr and EPL. Provided the monitor is calibrated with Luminance set to 100-120 Candelas per meter squared, I use soft-proofing on actual photographs vs targets to see how out of gamut colors may change when printed between Relative Colorimetric or Perceptual.  I also look at prints under different light sources as final prints are rarely viewed by a client or family member in perfect light box conditions. The growing uses of LED in homes and business is a case in point as many LEF sources are poor at seeing reds even if the light is spec’s with a high CRI. CRI does not measure the reds that some LEFs can’t reproduce properly. That might be a whole new video in TM-30 vs CRI and Kelvin😇

    Hope that helps.

    Soft proofing in this case is using the same display, display profile, RGB document (tagged), and zoom ratio; they should match.

    The two should match soft proof as they do in every other color-managed application I test this with; sorry Dano. Looks like a bug to me.

    Apple’s ColorSync Utility and PS soft proof: Perfect match.

    Epson Print Layout and those two: Mismatch.

    TIFFs showing them here:

    There is some differences between Ps and Lr the CS utility and EPL: EPL is wrong.
