On one of my paper profiles,it states that the above ,should be checked.
Is this necessary,and why?
I've been printing with Qimage,for years,,and have never had it checked

Thanks

Mike, it's my understanding that settings when using printer profiles, should match the settings used when the profile was created.
So if they say, they want that setting, I would use it.

Maybe Mike C will have a better explanation.

I found this:
Quote
Black point compensation is a color management function that preserves shadow detail when a photo is translated to a profile with fewer available dark tones than are present in the original image for instance, when it will be printed on a paper or with inks that can't achieve the true black of the original. Rather than allowing the unobtainable dark tones to be clipped away, and sacrificing shadow detail, Black Point Compensation re-maps the original tone steps into the available tone range.
