    I think the second set is improved, but still static. I've noticed that a lot of infographics not only use color block backgrounds to separate sections, they often also use something that breaks those...

  • Color Profile question

    Ok, so I am at a new job and am working on getting my color-matching under control. I'm getting familiar with playing with the Color Profiles on my PC here and am wondering what Color Settings profile I should choose for a standard HP office laser printer?

    I'm also playing with Quark and trying to figure out what is the best setting to choose when printing? I noticed when choosing to print to the HP printer, Quark literally prints what's on screen, even if it's a low-res preview.

    I asked the IT guy to install PostScript drivers, and now I have a PostScript printer in my printer selection, but the colors print MUCH darker now. Is this normal? Should I consider the PostScript output as "proper colors"?

      Anyone have any good references on how to choose the best color profile or create one for your printer? I wonder if HP has suggestions somewhere?
