Amanda C Posted February 4, 2016 Share Posted February 4, 2016 Damien has answered some of my questions in the Print Sharpening class, so I will try and make this more of a general question, that will help anyone with similar problems. Conflicting pro lab advice is still causing me a lot of headaches. I am testing four pro labs in order to choose one regular lab, so I won't be using them all; but in order to choose my favourite by sending the same two photos for each lab to print, obviously I need to be using the correct setting for their lab, otherwise the comparison test prints are useless. All four are all highly respected pro labs in the UK, widely used by professional photographers. Two labs tell me that I must go to Edit>Convert to Profile and choose the Destination space as their print profile for the paper that I want to print on. On the other hand, two other labs tell me that Edit>Convert to Profile Destination space should only be on sRGB. And in one lab, two different tech support guys told me these two conflicting settings for their lab! I have read some of Damien's articles, so all this conflicting advice is really confusing me. Do I follow each lab advice (and change the Destination space in Convert to Profile to their paper profile with the ones who recommend it), or ignore their advice and ONLY ever have it set on sRGB, regardless of what they tell me. My monitor is calibrated. Here is a link to the video from one of the labs with instructions on setting Convert to Profile. It's 3mins 54 seconds into the video. And another one from one of the most well known pro labs. https://www.theprintspace.co.uk/PhotoshopAndColourManagementTechniques Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
