Paper Grey Curves 3

When printing black and white images through the ABW driver, we don’t use the standard ICC color profiles because those profiles are based on the RGB driver, not the ABW driver. In fact, in Photoshop we use the “let the printer manage the colors option”

There are a few issues with this approach, and they all have to do with the fact that the output process isn’t color-managed so in order to compensate for the discrepancy, we build and use a custom black-and-white correction curve with the Paper Grey Curves Photoshop Plugin.

Creating a custom print curve with the Paper Grey Curves Photoshop plugin will help to iron out the wrinkles from the discrepancies we get between the pixel values we send to the Epson ABW driver to the pixel values we see in the final print.
