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.
The Process of Printer Calibration
As a starting point, the scanner will automatically calibrate using the patented IT8-Calibration. Afterwards, the user prints a full Gamut Printing Profile Target with over 1,000 tonal values. Once this profile target has been scanned, SilverFast will automatically generate an ICC-Profile for the selected printer, ink and paper combination, and then store them in the system color register.
This way it is guaranteed that your printer takes advantage of the the entire array of colors at all times.
From scan to print, the "Zero Mistake" Workflow ensures complete control of the color settings. Regardless if professional photographer with a fine art printer or amateur, the user will easily reach optimized high quality results.
With the SilverFast Archive Suite 8 and the optional Printer Calibration, you as the user are provided with all the necessary tools to transform an analog picture into a perfect print-out.
