Now I'm really confused. I was talking about the coloured images that you added to post #65 on Friday. I've never scanned any B&W+colour targets, nor for that matter anything generated by Argyll (have I?)You were talking about the Argyll discolouration, that was through your scanner. There are no images converted through the SLR as yet.
When you say "Canon paper profiles" I assume you mean media settings. I know that the Canon drivers had (have?) a tab that they call "Profiles" which I always found misleading, since they have nothing (directly) to do with ICC profiles. However, what you have here clearly demonstrated that there are some significant things going on for different media types. It's obviously not just ink loading that changes because that would not account for the very localised changes in colour rendering such as in the yellow region for the CM profile.These test images illustrate the differences in effect of three of the Canon paper profiles. From left to right they are Paper Platinum Pro, Paper Pro II and Paper Plus Glossy II N. They were all printed on a single sheet of Sihl Glossy 280g/sm paper using multiple passes through the printer.
If the printer is managing colours then selecting a particular media type will automatically invoke the related .icm profile. But, I assume that you are printing with no colour management in the Canon driver, in which case the Canon .icm profiles are not used. Sure, the media setting will affect the ink load, dithering and so on, but the profile is your custom profile. Or am I missing something?Interesting, Roger, but this is what Gamutvision makes of firstly the Canon Pro9000 II Photo Paper Pro Platinum CNB9TNA0.ICM paper profile and secondly the CM primary profile.
