Part for professionals :: ABOUT ICC PROFILES ::
Are you unsatisfied with the color accuracy or neutrality of BW photography? Our company
owns state-of-the-art measuring devices and algorithms for ICC profiles generating. It means that FOMEI
serves to both professionals and hobbyists custom calibration/profilation whatever compatible medium-printer
pair. Thanks to measuring of interaction between paper and printer, “color vision” of this pair becomes
known and ICC profile is generated. This ICC profile describes relationship between paper and printer
precisely and makes corrections to the natural nonlinearities of color reproduction. Nonlinearities that
are not compensable via sliders in the printer driver. Finally, ICC profile is added to the reproduction
chain into application that support output color management (Adobe Photoshop, Corel PHOTO-PAINT, mirage…)
Or the ICC profile is associated to printer right in operating system and then printing utility of OS
could be used: Print Wizard on Windows, Preview on MAC OS. This process results into color accuracy of
the printed photos. Relative to the focus of FOMEI company, generic ICC profiles are not produced a priori
for all existing photo-printers on today market. But library of ICC profiles of FOMEI Collection and FomeiJet
medias is still growing and therefore many of you will have possibility to choose between generic (basic)
