                                                           How Can I compare two profiles for my paper the easy way?

Let me say, right off the bat, I am not a fan of soft proofing. It is not accurate at all, and leads to false conclusions.
But, there is always a but. You can use soft proof to compare two profiles, showing that there may be a difference if any.

This challenge is about being able to compare two profiles for a certain paper and ink.

1) You have 2 profiles. One is the OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer) profile that came with the printer driver.
You bought a MUNKI  profiling kit, and now you want to see differences, be they blatant or subtle between the two profiles.

2) Being frugal and yet using real paper and ink, I can put two 5 x 7s  on a single sheet of 8.5 x 11 paper.
Qimage Ultimate places the images properly. No need to fuss over it.

3) We go to our settings tab, select the proper paper, the proper size, and the proper OEM profile. Set the quality to the best in the driver, and set to No Color Management in the driver.
4) But both will have the same profile applied.  That's not what I wanted.. I want one of these images to print using my Munki made profile.

5) See screen snaps attached to see that there is a difference; SOFT PROOF snaps as PROOF!!
Snap 024 shows the two 5 x 7s on a page in the Page editor.
Snap  023 shows the same page after you click the Soft Proof button.

5a) There is no substitute for a real test print on paper!  (Added benefit = making a pint might use a sheet of paper, but that is better than a clog and a cleaning cycle because the printer was idle too long.)

6) See the video to see how easy it is to set up in Qimage Ultimate to print this difference and then you KNOW what the difference really is.

Please set the video to Full screen to get HD.
