    Capture One’s NEW License Options (Terrible)
    on: January 19, 2023 at 8:08 pm

    I have purchased several versions of C1 over the past few years and whilst an excellent piece of software it requires quite some learning and practice to use it to full advantage. Since they started to play around with pricing and now with this latest missive I will stop using it. I use adobe’s photography plan and am  very familiar with Lightroom and PS. Together with NIK and Topaz my full needs are met. Goodbye Capture 1 and wishing you success.

    Thank both you very much for clarifying this. It helps a great deal as I now realize that with certain matte papers I can continue to print with PK ink, which is my normal setting, without any significant concern as to print quality, except for the dmax, which with many day to day images may not be noticeable. When I print fine art prints I will ensure to use mk and pk inks with corresponding driver and profiles according to paper finish.

    Thank you for clarifying. I will try a test to see what it looks like. It however begs the question, why would Epson provide a MK profile as well as a PK profile for a matte paper which obviously should use the MK icc profile.

    By the way I do have your excellent book from focal press, purchased some time ago, which has helped me a great deal when moving from film to digital cameras and colour digital printing.

    Thank you for your reply and I see your point that the profile and ink need to match the settings used to create the profile. When I look at the Epson profiles for my P5000 printer for example, LLK Archival Matte Paper, there is a profile for MK and also for PK inks. This was supplied by Epson thus I presume, wrongly perhaps, that it is OK to use either ink on this paper as it is selectable in the print driver settings also. What would be the difference in the print using these profiles and indicated  inks?

    If the difference is not easily noticeable it would avoid having to change inks for just a couple of prints. I do not have the instruments to check the differences and wonder if any one has taken a serious look at this?

    I have really appreciated the printing series and I may have missed this question.

    How much difference does it make to use PK inks on MK paper and vice versa. I note that the epson icc profiles include profiles for both mk and pk inks for some papers
