SilverFast’s new printer calibration

LaserSoft Imaging’s newly developed printer calibration software now offers an exclusive upgrade, which supports a broad spectrum of printers, ink and paper types, which guarantees colour precision and printing quality. The printer calibration upgrade uses the existing scanner as a measuring device, eliminating the need for additional and more expensive hardware.

Initially, the scanner is calibrated by using SilverFast’s patented auto IT8 calibration. The next step is to print a full gamut printer target containing 1.026 fields and over 1.000 tonal values. While the target is being scanned, SilverFast is automatically generating and saving an ICC-profile for the chosen printer-paper combination in the systems ICC-profile directory. Colour is a subjective perception and LaserSoft has taken this into account with SilverFast’s option of editing the generated profile according to the user’s desires. Based on the generated ICC profile, a new target is printed, in which the user can select the most neutral tonal values according to their perception. Once completed, SilverFast computes a personal user profile and saves it.

The process is easy, with a smooth workflow for use by professional photographers, fine art printers as well as amateurs to obtain the most optimal results.

Priced at only $99, this is an upgrade well worth the cost.
