People new to the world of Digital Photography and Printing can quite easily become frustrated when their prints do not meet their expectations.
In order to achieve accurate prints, one has to understand that all the equipment in the chain have to be calibrated as not to to present any inconsistencies.
The calibration process is in th eform of ICC profiles which are required for both the monitor and the printer.
A printer requires ICC information no matter which type of ink or paper is used. This also applies to OEM inks, but the printer manufacturer is able to build the profile into the printer driver, so it appears that no profile is required when in fact one is.
Third party inks have a slightly different colour space, therefore a different profile is required. Whilst we always recommend custom profile for best results, the free generic profiles below are suitable for all levels of photographers.
