X-Rite Video | i1Profiler Basic Printer


by Brenda K. Hipsher – April 28th, 2011

The color management software built into our new i1Pro solutions includes two user modes – basic and advanced.  The power behind these two interfaces is the same new prism color engine that is producing superior results for printer profiling. Don’t be fooled by the word “basic.”  The only thing basic about this mode is the ease of use.

Embedded in the software program are no nonsense instructional videos that help you walk through the software step by step and choose whatever you’d like to learn about. We’re featuring some of them here so you can see these informative and helpful video tutorials for yourself.

When producing and using printer profiles it’s important to set the print driver properly. This video gives you a good look at this process. Remember to:

  1. Set media type
  2. Set resolution
  3. Turn off all color management in the print driver

Following this work flow is essential to controlled color management.  This will allow you to decide what profile you’re using so that you can predict the output based on your profiled and calibrated monitor representation.
