Soft Proofing #2 - Testing Update

The prints have been delivered and an initial inspection has highlighted several points:

  1. The photos need to be brightened even more, although not by much.
  2. With the photos using the "Perceptual" rendering intent the reds seem to be more orange than red.
  3. Not sure whether it is my eyesight or the ambient light but the border of the photos were the ICC Profile is applied appear to have a very slight colour cast.

Overall I am at present leaning towards using the ICC Profile with the "Relative Colorimetric" rendering intent plus Photoshop adjustments, although further examination is required especially under different lighting conditions.  I will probably make some further adjustments, especially on the brightness, and re-submit them for printing.
