A while ago, the simple, yet powerful Professional Print & Layout (PP&L) tool was launched. It gave user’s the ability to get the very best from their new imagePROGRAF PRO series printers. Today we would like to highlight just one of the many ways that this free Canon download can make user’s working lives easier and less expensive… soft proofing!
When using a good standard and well calibrated hi-res monitor, soft proofing gives you the ability to see a simulation of how the image will look when printed, based on your chosen media profile. Ensuring that the colours and tones will look the same on your chosen paper as they do on the screen helps avoid costly mistakes, wasted time and materials.
Soft proofing is great for professional photographers that print, display and sell their work, but it’s also incredibly important to production environments who need to get a good representation of the colours, etc. prior to launching a large print run.
PP&L for Canon imagePROGRAF PRO series is available for free from the Canon UK website HERE.
