Hi, Is there a Video/DVD tutorial on how to use Profile Prism please?
I have searched online and at youtube but cannot see one.
I'm like one of those judges on that TV program 'The Voice' always hovering over the button (in this case to buy it) but still not sure. One of those people who read how to do it and then forget but see it in action and understand it.
Thanks

Hi Russ,
No, there isn't a DVD or any videos. The best I can suggest is to look at the online help here:
http://www.ddisoftware.com/prism/help/
If you do decide to purchase, then there are people on the forum who can help if you get stuck.

Perhaps, this will help.

I can make a video for you showing how I recently made a profile for HP Advanced Glossy paper to be used by a Canon P-100 printer and OEM ink.

Before you buy Profile Prism, (PP), you will need a decent scanner.... not an expensive scanner, but one that allows color correction to be turned off, or allow RAW scans, or a cold light scanner like a Canon LIDE.

We, many of us, years ago, when we used Profile Prism a lot, bought PP and tried it. If the results were poor, we knew we needed a better / proper scanner. I bought a Canon LIDE scanner for 79.00 and I was off and running.
Terry bought a different one, I think also LIDE type, and he was off and running.
Latest scanner which is perfect for the PP scan, is my Epson Work Force 3640.

That seems to be the stumbling block for some. There is no list of scanners that work properly that I know of.
Maybe some PP users can chime in here and advise what they use with success.

Hi, thank you for the replies.
I have an older scanner Epson Perfection 1260 along with VueScan software.
Fred, any help is most appreciated.
I only print for myself but my dad always said "If a jobs worth doing it's worth doing well" and that kinda rubbed off on me so I would like to print the best that I can get rather than leaving it to chance.
Do you need just the one IT8 target although I have two printers?
Again thank you for the help.
Russ

First, let me say, Each printer is totally separate. You do each one as if you had only one.

Since we do each printer as if it was your only one, then we only need one target

Read through this
http://www.ddisoftware.com/prism/help/psteps.htm#prep

After you print the Target40.tif (using the set up in Qimage for target printing job, and it dries thoroughly, you trim it, and place both targets, IT8 and the Target40 on the glass at the same time.
It is a learning process.

Attention to detail on all your settings is primary. Next a scan within parameters... and the rest is easy.

Hi, Fred a quick question.
I can find here in Greece only two types of CanoScan Lide the 120 and the 220.
Could you advise what you or Terry purchased please.
Many Thanks

I have the Canon Lide 110.  believe the 120 superseded it.
The 220 has a higher scan resolution and is faster than the 120 but the 120 is perfectly adequate for PP.
