Printer Colour Calibration
Why do I need a Calibrated Printer?
- Removes Printer induced Colour Casts and other artefacts from your prints
- Saves considerable expense in ink and paper by avoiding Test Prints
- Allows the effective use of other brand papers and inks (e.g Ilford, Fotospeed)
- Maximises the enjoyment of Photoshop whilst minimising frustration
