Notes:

  • One report that the Booksmart profile for Hahnemuhle Photo Rag lays down too much ink. The poster went back and did more testing. He found that the best result (for him) was using the Booksmart profile with the Media Type of Fine Art Heavyweight Photo. Eric Kunsman of Booksmart Studio has replied "We used 'Premium Matte as the media type for Canon 308 g Photo Rag because in our testing we were able to achieve a better density with this media type. If anyone is having any trouble with our ICC profiles or have suggestions for different media settings, please feel free to contact us at profiles@booksmartstudio.com. We are always willing to listen and help. Over 350 ICC profiles for the Canon machines have been downloaded with very few complaints. If you need to ask about our settings, please feel free." Note: Booksmart Studio now has two FREE profiles for Hahnemuhle Photo Rag, one with media type of Premium Matte and one with Fine Art Textured. Now that is service!
  • John Hollenberg (who created and maintains the Wiki) tested another Booksmart profile created for Innova F Type Gloss and found the profile to be excellent. Another poster (Hugh) reported similarly postive experience with this profile: " I just used the Booksmart profile for Innova F-Type Gloss, and it looks really really good."
  • Booksmart Fine Art Metal is for printing on special Aluminum and Gold substrates which can be purchased from Booksmart Studio. According to the web site, "Users must overcoat the metal after printing due to the nature of ink sitting on metal. One can coat with Clearstar Coatings for a matte, semi-gloss, or gloss finish. One can also laminate the fine art metals, which is often more accurate and reliable but expensive for initial setup. Waterproof ink will run because the ink sitting on the inkjet coating, so please remember to overcoat or laminate your prints."
  • Two reports that the generic profiles from Ilford are sub-standard on IPF5000.
  • The Lexjet profile for Hahnemuhle Torchon still uses Special 3, which uses Photo Black ink. This is presumably an error. All of their profiles for Lexjet papers are now correct.
