    Hi all,

    I've got the Kodak DX6490 camera and a Canon i9950 printer.

    Do colour profiles exist that will be loadable in windows and/or Photoshop that
    will result in prints that look the same as on the computer monitor or camera LCD?

    What should I really be aiming for?

    Something close that wont require u to get a Ph.D, take
    a year to figure out and cost ur life's savings.

    Exact matches r often not realistic- law of diminishing
    returns applies here!!

    Any advise is my attempt to contribute more than I have received but I can only assure you that it works on my PC. GOOD LUCK.

    Hi Ben,

    Have you reviewed the latest information about Kodak Professional Inkjet
    Paper? If not, please visit the following site. We are making availale
    profiles etc. that can be used in Photoshop etc. The ICC Profiles that are
    included will help you create the best possible prints from the combination
    of printers. In your case the i9950 is not yet included, but this feature
    is still new. Watch for changes. Although not there you may be able to
    glean some helpful information from the available information.

    Kodak wants to help you in your professional life as well as the general use
    of our products. Good luck, let me know if you have questions.

    |If you have not yet visited the Kodak Professional Inkjet paper site, please
    |do. You will find some helpful information there.

    TY Ron. Note I print all color @ Ritz which has
    Frontier printers that were there 2 in left pane. The
    printer paper combo seems to be more important that
    prtr model (like Frontier340 vs 360). Photo Mag listed
    them that way 2 2yrs ago.

    Perhaps u would be so kind to advise where I could find
    info on these 2 subjects:

    1-I have a profile 4 my DC3400 still cam but cant
    figure where to stick it (except 4 the obvious 'where
    the sundont shine' :) ) I get pics into my PC by
    inserting CF card into a reader so it shows as a
    removable drive X in my PC.

    2-Imbedded profiles in images & their affect- A
    step-by-step explanation without computational detail &
    nit-picky exceptions. Ala the color film class given to
    all EK professionals & I think in the EK Camera Club.

    I am a former employee @ MSD @ KP in Roch,NY-bad
    weather but great company.

    Your help is MUCH appreciated. Thanks- bye- Larry

    Hi Larry,

    Just a note to let you know about EasyShare. Always glad to hear from a
    Brother Kodak guy.

    EasyShare will set your printer driver for optimum results when you use
    Kodak paper. In that scenario having the settings or ICC profiles are not
    necessary. If you are a Photoshop person and need a higher quality image,
    and want to use Kodak paper, then we suggest Kodak Professional Inkjet Paper
    along with the ICC profiles that are provided. We do not provide them for
    the general use inkjet papers, but include them in the EasyShare Software.
    Since the prints are made on a Frontier, I am not sure of the details. I
    suspect that they are chemically created prints that are digitally exposed.
    That process can yield excellent results.

    As to the ICC profile, you can add it to your Photoshop or other program as
    you would other plugin type features.

    You can go to the following site to get information on ICC and how to use
    it. Good site. Once you have reviewed, let me know if you any additional
    questions.

    Talk to you soon, Larry, let me know if you think I can help you in the
    future.

  7. Thx Ron- I found That site Monday & plan to email them
    with same Q'. Also joined Kodak.com, RGB.com &
    DigitalImaging.com where I may do same. It is tough to
    find answers that are at the correct level of detail
    but I'm used to problems that take months & years to
    solve.

    Your help is MUCH appreciated. Thanks- bye- Larry
