    That's the way I and many others felt and it's why, with pharmacist's help, I started this thread.

    If you work your way through post #1, you should find that Argyll works for you too. You can create your profiles with ColorMunki software, but you have tight copyright restrictions, with Argyll profiles made using the CM, you can more or less do what you like with them.

    It is possible to distribute Argyll profiles as text files. That is an .icm file renamed as .txt.

    You just left click on the "attached file" title below, check "save file" and "OK" to your chosen location. When saved, rename the file type .icm instead of .txt. You then have a profile file which should be "installed" in the "color" folder with all your other profiles.

    These profiles were created for the Canon 9000 II printer, set to Photo Paper Pro Platinum, using IS inks on various papers as indicated by their file names. The profile creation processes employed the various CAP batch file programs listed in post #1 in this thread.

    The images below illustrate scanned test prints showing the results of a CAP480 on Sihl Glossy 280g, a CAP750 and a CAP957 on PPD Pearl 200g.

    Below are example profiles uploaded as .txt files.

    I have tried to open the attachment in both Mac and PC with no success, must be doing something very wrong.

    Cheers,

    You just left click on the "attached file" title in #196, check "save file" and "OK" to your chosen location, when saved, rename the file type .icm instead of .txt. You then have a profile file which should be "installed" in the "color" folder with all your other profiles.
