    Have you heard of this new-fangled application called Adobe Photoshop/Lightroom/Camera Raw? It has some really far-out technology and a very difficult to comprehend workflow for both printing and proofing. It's absolutely revolutionised the complete photographic industry in the past 2-3 years.

    HAHAHA!!

    But seriously, most people would be using Ps or Lr as they are the market leaders in RGB photographic/fine art printed output by a large margin.

    When you mention that you only get good results if you first convert to CMYK, have you checked to see if the profiles your 9800 is using are RGB or CMYK profiles? Being a RIP, it is extremely likely the canned profiles are CMYK and this is why you would be seeing such a marked difference.

    Regarding your last question, just about ALL of the popular Raw processing applications, such as: Lightroom, ACR+Ps, Bibble Pro, Capture One Pro 6, (maybe) DXO Optics Pro 7, etc. will be very easily able to accomplish your proofing request and show the proof on-screen with (in most cases) very accurately proofed colours/hues.

    I have the version 3.1.8 , the proof printer is an Epson 4880 with the EFI Gravure 4245 Matte paper.

    So, when I select the device on System Manager, I can select the "normal" or "contone" printer: what is the difference?

    The tool for the linearization and color profiles is LinTool. I see in the linearization process that there are many settings: what are the suggested settings?

    Thx in advance
    Yes, i have excutived color management it on epson pro 9800

    Hi there,
    Why using Colorproof in order to print photographs? You may just want to create your own profiles and then Photoshop can handle them just fine!

    Well, quality-wise there is no real reason, but when it comes to the workflow, ColorProof (or a RIP in general) brings quite a few benefits when printing photographs, especially if you print a lot/on roll paper.

    True. I don't use Colorproof to print photographs because, as a printer, often the author and/or client get along and it's only print after the other. But I understand the benefits you can get to spare some paper.
