I will work with Saal Digital for printing.
I have read this thread (3 years old),describing the procedure:
Procedure (written by Dave R. -PhaseOne)
1) Obtain soft proofing ICC profile from your print service.
2) Load that profile into your operating system.
3) Open your picture for editing
4) Select View/Proof Profile and click on your print services ICC profile to select it
5) Do all your editing .
6) When all looks perfect go to Process recipes and select the recipe to match your print services requirements TIFF 8 or 16 bit jpeg etc. and select the ICC profile he requires: Adobe RGB, Prophoto or whatever but NOT the soft proofing profile he sent you.
7) No need to pre-view this as it will look slightly different than it did at the end of 5 and will only confuse.
8 ) Send the output file to your print service.
My question is : What happens if I apply sharpening for printing?
( Menu: Output Sharpening for Print)
It seems to be that there are 2 solutions for creating the final file to send to Saal Digital:
1/ Modify the soft proofing recipe (format + ICC profile) with Jpeg/Tiff (for the format),
sRVB/AdobeRVB (for the ICC profile).
2/ Use a specific recipe for export (as described in the procedure written by Dave R.) but with the sharpening settings of the soft proof recipe.
This thread seems to suggest the second solution.
"9. The settings are automatically saved so they can be used again.
However, it is recommended that the settings are saved as a component of a new recipe
so that they are less likely to be accidentally overwritten."
Did I understand correctly? .... and what do you suggest?
Thanks by advance.
