    Acrobat profile folder location:


    In Windows, right-click a profile and select Install Profile. Alternatively, copy the profiles into the WINDOWS\system32\spool\drivers\color folder.

    In Mac OS, copy profiles into the /Library/ColorSync/Profiles folder or the /Users/[username]/Library/ColorSync/Profiles folder.

    After installing color profiles, be sure to restart Adobe applications.

    you didnt get the point!

    gucalves is printing with black toner only! using icc colour profiles doesnt make any sense for grayscale printing.

    all he can do is reducing the amount of black toner by applying a gradation curve to the pdf. obviously the printed result will get lighter.

    well I though he would reduce the amount of ink modifying the black curve... wouldn't he?

    how do you control the black curve with an icc colour profile to get a predetermined result???

    all your links and examples are about colormanagement for cmyk colours!

    No you would get a lighter shade of black on the finished piece. Looking more like a washed out black and probably a pissed off client.

    Ok, it was just an idea.. maybe you are right and it won't work, by the way if you want to reduce tonner I guess is not possible without affecting the image, or is it?

    Not that I have seen. If the images are in CMYK or RGB converting the to black may reduce the toner usage without effecting the final output...

    Hello everybody, It's right using camicov tips or Oris and GMG I'll have a washed printed file, but if I use this just to print books with text I think that I could reduce 1% of tonner coverage which represents about US$ 1.500,00.

    Thanks

    you cant reduce the toner amount for text. text is normally 100% black.

    if you are going to set the tone value to 99% for saving only 1% toner you wil get jaggy edges of the charaters since the gray value will be rasterized.

    you have the only option to redcue the toner amount for 100% black values by setting some machine parameters, either by normal user settings or in service mode.

    they are not working for monochrome printing!
    Yes, your are right!

    Spider, you are right but I already used the machine settings, so now I have no more options to save Ink. Anyway, I will try this demo of Oris and when a I finish tests I will post it here.

    Thanks

    how will you find out that oris is really saving your toner?
    you cant measure the toner usage.

    CGS ORIS InkSaver may have the qualification to fulfill your desire.
    by recalaculating the file and making different CMYK seperation, you will achieve what you want, absolutely.

    Spider, before I start printing a job I will get the counter and the toner kg on the machine panel and when I finish the job I get the numbers again to calculate it. I will do it with an original file and with the same file processed by Oris.
