Hey all, I'm finally getting around printing some 18x12's for my walls.
I've made some initial test prints that look killer and very similar to my monitor, but I want to ensure I'm getting the best results possible.
Here's some quick info and print settings I'm using:
Pixma pro 100
platinum pro paper
editing/printing from Photoshop
soft proofing using the correct paper profile (view -> proof -> custom)
black point comp is checked
same settings in the actual print dialog box (Photoshop manages colors)
I'm sharpening the full size image then changing the document size to something like 18"x12", i am NOT downsizing to 300ppi, but rather sending the highest resolution image to the printer, which is around 400-500ppi.
Am I missing anything? Even if something can be done to add 1% to the quality let me know. I am trying to mimic the quality I see at some of the Peter Lik galleries I see across the country.
