Reduce the ink limit per channel

In this step, you limit the ink at the point the printer achieves its maximum color density. The amount of ink affects not only the gamut size of the calibration, but also ink consumption.

In many cases, the maximum color density is achieved at approximately 50%. Limiting the ink for each channel provides a better basis for the calibration.
  1. Click Print.
  2. Wait for the ink to dry. Then, follow the on-screen instructions to measure the chart.
  3. Click Show patches (optional).

    By moving the pointer over a patch, you can view its L*a*b* value. Each patch is divided along the diagonal. The top left area shows the expeted color, the bottom right area shows the measured color.

    You can view the color patches for all steps of the calibration procedure that require you to measure printed charts.

  4. Click Advanced (optional).

    In the Advanced window, you can select a simulation (reference) profile, and adjust the ink limits.

  5. Click Next.
