Why Do You Need the Spyderprint?
- Prints often do not match display: Both display and printer calibration are essential to provide a base for superior print matching. This greatly reduces wasted paper and ink with your printed output.
- Image colors are not true to life: After calibration, images can be viewed and edited with confidence.
- Photographers, designers and imaging professionals can work confidently on properly color-calibrated printers and can assert greater control over the color fidelity of their digital process. Images can be reliably assessed and adjusted on a properly calibrated display and printer, enabling true-to-life reproduction of image files
- The spectrocolorimeter in Spyderprint gives you the ability to create profiles for your printers, inks and papers. Simply install the software, print your choice of targets with your printer and then use the SpyderGuide device to help step you through the easy process to calibrate and build a profile.
- The exclusive SpyderProof™ feature provides a series of images to help you evaluate detail and compare it with your images. We designed additional features in our software to make it easy for you to adjust profile settings to get the best possible printed output for your images.
How Does Spyderprint Work?
Designed for Professional Photographers, Fine Art Printers, Production Professionals and anyone who wants accurate print-to-screen matching
- Profiling Speed and Accuracy
The spectrocolorimeter gives you custom profiles in minutes with EZ targets for color and black and white. The SpyderGuide™ device provides convenience in reading the printed targets to help you create profiles easily and accurately.
- Intuitive Profiling Software
Usability is improved with the step-by-step process. The program makes it easy to follow the calibration of the targets and help you build a profile.
This function gives you a series of carefully selected images to evaluate detail with a photographer’s point of view. This feature is available for each unique printer profile that you create, providing you with a soft-proofing tool that is invaluable in managing your printed output.
- Total Control
Advanced controls are included in the Color and Black & White Tinting curves in your Image Editor, which allows you to apply adjustments to the profile rather than to each individual image. The Extended Grays Target allows you to add precision gray and near gray data to profiles, enhancing the quality of tinted and b&w prints.
- Extensive Editing Functions
Flexible target options and high patch profiling targets produce "gallery quality prints" in color or black and white. Easily select prebuilt or custom sets of advanced profile settings to produce profiles with specific combinations of highlight and shadow tint, detail and neutrality settings
- Please Note: Spyderprint builds RGB ICC profiles. Please check with the manufacturer of your laser printer or the developer of your RIP software to determine if your laser printer or RIP is compatible with RGB format ICC profiles.
