    hello pharmacist,
    as mentioned above the target file in the 480target.zip contains many more colors than 480 - most likely as the sideeffect from your stretching as mentioned.
    Could you post a plain 480 color target tiff file please , with no further modifications to it , with 480 colors, LZW compression possible, 3x8 bit color depth only , in a zip file here since tiff files are not supported. I was trying to place the color points into the RGB or Lab color space but there are just too many colors - 16000 or more as shown above. I still try to see where different programs place the color points in their target files.

    ISF, it would be quicker and more precise to create you own target image from scratch using Pharmacists batch file. It requires only one Argyll command line or two if you wish to print it out.

    You can just make your own target using the targen command. Despite the extra colors introduced by the stretching, the resulting reading doesn't have any effects on the produced profiles. Many have used my target and the results are really good.
