    $100 is very cheap. for a good profile you need 3 hours and professional measurement devices and software. measuring linearistation, define the inklimit, measuring the profiling chart, analyzing the datas, correction of the datas and then creating the profile or devicelink. for your private use could it be useful to work with this service but for professional use impossible. my opinion.

    Well as was advertised, this is a profiling service-- nobody said anything about linearization and ink limiting-- its not really possible to do all of the things you mentioned remotely. If all you are looking for is a good looking accurate profile, nothing is required beyond printing a target, and measuring it. If you are looking to do cmyk simulation proofing you won't be able to use a service like this, but for making great looking prints that use the full gamut of your printer you don't need to do any of that advanced stuff-- ink limiting is pretty much strictly to save money at this point, as the amount of ink put down by an inkjet printer has very little correlation with the ink limit of a cmyk press-- also the G7 standard no longer specifies ink limiting targets for its various color spaces.

    profile service

    It depends on your workflow. Normally you should use your rip for Linearisation, total inklimit. Then you could try this service and test it. If you try printing with photoshop you should have much better results with any profle specially for your printer than printing without any profile

    Hallo Amedeus,

    do you use a rip software, do you print only with Photoshop and this is urgent: Do you have a measurement device?

    best regards

    Profile Service

    What kind icc profile you need to use? RGB or CMYK profile?

    I think it is better for you to buy the spectrophotometer like i1 (sorry, i am not promote it, just the sample one).
    It is easy to use and you can create the icc profile whenever you need it.
    Very very simple.

    The basic version of this device (spectrophotometer) like i1 only about USD 800.
    you can create print RGB chart and create RGB profile easily with i1 software or you can print CMYK chart using your RIP software then create the CMYK icc profile using i1 software or if you have the other software to create icc, it is okay too.

    You can PM me if you need help.

    It is Freely Bro.

    Thanks.
