I recently profiles two papers that don’t have existing curves, i used the 700 step target as this was recommend for new paper.
“700 step targets are great for the FIRST calibration of a new ink on paper”
The prints from the new curves are nice and i am happy with them.
Doing this got me thinking, what is the best practice for using calibration targets?
For and existing paper I imagine that a 256 step is best place to start, but what if i am profiling a new paper and start with 700 step?
After the initial print and scan and new curve creation, do I print again on the 700 step to check new curve or should I use the 256 step?
