Custom ICC Profiles
Full Gamut is a provider of custom ICC Print Profiles. Although based in Tasmania our services are available to Interstate customers. We offer either an onsite profiling service or profiles by mail order. Our profiles are made using X-Rite i1 Profiler software and a Barbieri LFP Spectrophotometer. Italian made, it is a precision instrument able to utilise UV cut filters to account for optical brighteners found in many "bright white" papers. We can also use a polarising filter to subtract flare, providing much more open shadow tones. We are capable of profiling both RGB and CMYK systems but specialise in RGB Inkjet profiling.
Custom Print Profile
A print profile is generated by printing a series of colour test patches of known value through your printer and measuring the resultant print. This spectral data is interpreted by the profiling software to generate an ICC colour profile which is installed in your system and used by colour management savy software such as Photoshop, Lightroom or any colour managed application to allow accurate previews and output of your images.
On Site Profiles
