I thought this was something I had a good understanding of, but it would now appear that I'm missing a piece of the puzzle. Someone recently brought me a stack of lithographs, and wants them duplicated on rag paper. Having just purchased a large format scanner, I thought perfect, this should be cake...
Here's what I've done, perhaps someone can point out where I'm going wrong.
-Profile scanner with Kodak IT8 chart (color management off), build profile with profilemaker 5, settings: large profile, neutral black
-Scan lithos with all color management turned off. Open in Photoshop, assign scanner profile (have also tried assign scanner profile and convert to adobe98)
-adjust sharpness and print out of Studioprint using custom profile, rendering intent: perceptual/relative with black point compensation.
At this point, should that print not be a pretty close match to my original (my prints are coming out much more yellow)? I have been able to proof and adjust color accordingly to get a good print, but if I have to go through all of that anyway, I'm wondering what the point of profiling the scanner really is...
