Hi all.....I am somewhat confused by the profiling needed for pro printing. If I get the ICC profile for say Frontier Digital ( or any other printer ) where do I put it? (on a mac/cs5 )
Is this just for soft proofing? Or the actual working space?
If for soft proofing do you then go into your working space ( sRGB) and fiddle with the colours till the soft proof looks right? Doesn't this defeat the purpose of calibrating your monitor?
I am looking at needing prints done....I have a recently opened fuji kiosk style print shop but nothing else. I did some el cheapo stuff as Xmas presents but it took a few goes before I was so/so happy with the colours. They looked great on my screen but yuk on theirs. I will say it was interesting watching the newbies struggle with the printer Seems it doesnt like the heat and everything stuck together.....
I am open to suggestions on somewhere "good".
Am I approaching this the right way?
