How to print & ICC Profiles Download

For maximum colour accuracy soft proof download the profiles and soft proof at home. You can download the ICC profiles below under the tabs Giclee or C-type. Please read the guidelines on how to print  under each process.

One of the prime concerns of many photographers/artists when producing inkjet prints is the ability to reproduce onto paper what is seen on the computer screen. The main reason for this is the simple, but little known fact, that all printers interpret colour differently. Each one has an in-built generic profile that it uses to describe the colour that it “should” produce. This is built in by the manufacturer and, in reality, is a “guess‟ at what the printer should do. The guess is often wrong. A profile is essentially a description (a label or tag) of the characteristics of a device. For instance, each time you take a picture with a digital camera it will embed a profile within each image file. This profile is a description of the colour within that image file, which is a known international standard

4 With Contact sheets  you need to make sure that you have at least 8mm around the contact sheets so as not to lose any of the file names.

5 Please note all images will be printed at the print size chosen doing the upload. For Example:- If you upload a 4″x4″ image and choose the 6″x4″ print size, your image will be stretched to 6″x4″ resulting in cropping. The way to order odd sized images is to put the image onto a template which matches the print size, i.e. if you want a 4″x4″ then you need to put the 4″x4″ onto a 6″x4″ template, flatten and save as a JPEG at 300PPi. The result will be that your 4″x4″ image will be in the middle of a 6″x4″ print.
