Hello,tyamada said:There is reasonably priced software form DDI Software called Profile Prism ($79.00)
Profiling a printer requires a good scanner, not a expensive one.
I am using Canon MP 210. The quesition is about it's scanner. The site http://www.ddisoftware.com/prism/help/faq.htm says about scanners: " It often depends more on the scanning software than the scanner hardware itself. If you have access to good scanning software that allows you to acquire a raw scan with color management turned off, most likely your scanner will do the job. If all you have are the most basic controls offered by the "standard" Windows interface (brightness and contrast), you may not be able to operate your scanner in a mode that allows it to capture the entire color target. When set to default scan settings, most scanners will clip both the shadows and highlights as they try to create an image with too much contrast. This means that part of the color target is actually not captured. It is therefore often necessary to turn off scanner color management to obtain a "raw" scan. ".
The question is how to turn it off in order to get "raw" scan.
Which scanner hardware, software or software settings would you recommend me to get or do? Does the dpi matter?
