I know I've been MIA lately ... we were at a family reunion, which took 8 days out of our lives. Now I'm trying to play catch up in a major way - I hope to spend time replying to recent threads over the next few days. Meanwhile, I'm in panic mode!
I just had my first client order with WHCC and my photos came back with a lot of red. I'm calibrated (with Spyder 2 Express) but for some reason, the reds are haunting me. The woman I've been corresponding with at WHCC has been helpful, but I still have questions. She suggested that I adjust my whitepoint to a lower temperature to reduce the reds. I haven't done that yet because I'm not sure that's the right route to go just yet.
I confess, I didn't use the color profiles from WHCC to soft proof my photos. The client wanted glossy and I always order lustre. So today I downloaded the glossy profiles, and viewed the proof colors with them. I'm seeing the reds for sure when I do that. So now what? I don't know how to adjust my images based on the soft proofing ... do I pull out reds in my working copy and then verify with the soft proof that it's good?
Just seems like a lot of extra work if I'm going to have to do that to all of my images from here on out. I'd like to get my colors right from the getgo. How do I have my working images match the soft proof all of the time?
Can you see me pulling out my hair from where you sit? *sigh*
Thanks for the help in advance.
