ICC Printer Calibration

For truecolor Prints

The ICC Printer Calibration utilizes a flatbed scanner, its colors are perfectly adjusted with SilverFast's automatic IT8 Calibration, as a measuring device for profiling the printer.

Output or printer calibration is very useful when the task is to reproduce an image via printer under the condition of keeping the colors and hues as original and predictable as possible. Without creating an appropriate ICC profile which takes into account the printer, ink cartridges and paper used, the task is almost impossible.

The SilverFast 8 Printer Calibration is an exclusive feature for calibrating the printer using a flatbed scanner, which is appropriate for professionals and for beginners as well, due to its easy handling and smart price-performance ratio.

How is the SilverFast Printer Calibration working?

The ICC Printer Calibration utilizes a flatbed scanner, its colors are perfectly adjusted with SilverFast's automatic IT8 Calibration, as a measuring device for profiling the printer. There is no longer the need for expensive additional hardware or software – an all-in-one-solution. Simply print a test chart using your printer and scan this chart with your IT8 calibrated scanner. SilverFast calculates an ICC profile for your printer and the paper and ink combination.

Requirements for SilverFast’s Printer Calibration

SilverFast from version 8.5 (SE Plus, Ai Studio, Archive Suite, Archive Suite SE) for

  • A supported flatbed scanner, see list below

  • Reflective IT8 Target for Scanner Calibration

  • Inkjet Printer with disengageable Color Management (Note for macOS)


The results – impressive!

Using SilverFasts Printer Calibration guarantees the color space reproducible by the printer is being used in the most comprehensive and uncompromised way. The employed ink and paper type have a notable influence on the printed result. For consistent quality you can therefore create an ICC profile for any combination of printer, ink and paper type.


Unique customization – Edit ICC Printer Profiles

Since color is a subjective perception, SilverFast offers the option of editing the generated profile according to the user’s desires. This inherently complex task of color space adaptation is very easy to handle. Based on the generated ICC profile a new target is printed, in which the user can select the most neutral tonal values according to his perception. After this, SilverFast computes a personal user profile and saves it.
