    P900 ICC Profiles
    on: January 26, 2023 at 9:25 pm

    Short answer: it depends.

    Long answer:

    Not all ICC profiles are created equally

    In this 23 minute video, I’ll cover:

    The basic anatomy of ICC Profiles

    Why there are differences in profile quality and color rendering

    How to evaluate an ICC output profile

    Examples of good and not so good canned profiles and custom profiles on actual printed output.

    Comparing NR (or sharpening or just about anything) with defaults between two converters doesn’t tell us much about the full capabilities of the raw processing engine or further options.

    As far as NR is concerned, well, what’s coming from Adobe should make LR/ACR users even happier; anything more said would get me in trouble.

    You should always test output using good color reference images designed for that task. The color reference images RGB values are such that they are set for output and are editing and display agnostic. Test the output this way and examine for the same color issues so we know it’s not your image-specific issues causing the problems:

    Edit: Because this forum software is so wonky and poor, I’ve had to separate part of the URL for the direct download above. Otherwise, posting is (sadly) ‘Forbidden‘.

    If you wish to roll back to an older version, use the Creative Cloud application, click on the three dots (…) and select “Other Versions”.

    Anytime LR updates the catalog, it automatically saves the old one too.

    And another product for making profiles (not free), from the creator of the X-rite Passport itself!
