Can anyone tell me where to find ICC profiles for printing on Ilford Galerie papers with the Canon PIXMA PRO-200 printer?

1) Contact Ilford about them making one.

https://ilford.com/printer-profiles-paper-settings/

They say to use "Generic Printer Settings" otherwise.


2) Canon does not yet have ICC Profiles for 3rd party papers. You could contact Canon and ask them when they will have Proo 200 profiles.

https://www.usa.canon.com/internet/portal/us/home/products/groups/3rd-party-papers/

and

https://www.canon.com.cy/printers/inkjet/pixma/software/icc-profiles/


3) You could make one yourself or have one made for you. ($$$)

Example:

https://www.colourphil.co.uk/profiling.shtml

A problem in having one made is that services may not have a Pro 200 to work with yet.


4) It appears the print heads for the Pro 100 and Pro 200 are the same.

The firmware and drivers are different, but, you could try the ICC printer profile for the Pro 100.


Please let us know how the generic or Pro 100 profiles works out.

I've tried using the closest of the canned profiles to the Ilford papers and printed a photo book on Ilford Galerie Smooth Luster Duo paper using the profile for Canon's Pro Luster paper. It worked out pretty well!
A friend who has been using Ilford papers for a long time says the dye ink printers are quite forgiving so you can use the closest canned profile and expect good results. That's been my experience so far.

Hello mogbrown,

Can I ask you how you bind the photo book? also what are your opinion on the Ilford paper you used?

This forum is nice but there'snt too much about binding :)

I take all my books to a local bindery, which I trust. They love getting photo bhooks as it makes a change from the routine theses and book repairs. But if you were to do a bookbinding course at your local community college I'm sure you could learn to bind your own; most of - if not all - the necessary supplies are available at art supply stores. Although it requires a clean area to work in and the ability to work with precision, the process shouldn't be beyond the ability of a reasonably competent person. A friend showed me how to make Solander boxes to keep my books in and it wasn't all that difficult; I just don't have the time to do it for the 50+ books I've printed.
