Canon Pro100 Snowy Print

Discussion in 'Printers, Monitors, and Color Management' started by Minuteman3, Dec 5, 2018.

  1. I’ve been very pleased with the prints I make with my Pro100. I generally use Red River polar paper and some 3rd party inks. Excellent results over and over.

    I took an image of a red Christmas ball on some snow yesterday. It looks wonderful on my monitor. But, I was thinking this one may be difficult to reproduce as a print. So, I tried. Although I might tweak the brightness just a pinch, overal I like the result a great deal.

    If you’re looking for a great printer up to 13x19, I really recommend the Pro100. Especially when it’s on sale!!

  2. White on white paper is always tough. I've been told that lowering the white point a tad will make for better prints--though I have never tried it. If your white is exactly like the paper, great; otherwise it stands out.
     
  3. I did make some further adjustments, including adding some additional Brightness in Canon's Printstudio Pro, and tried again .... and I am quite impressed. This is a very difficult image to print ... and, in person, it looks very nice!! The bottom left corner is a bit blown out, but overall it looks like ... snow!!

    That second one looks very good. Looks like snow and ice to me.

  5. Even the "blown out" section is distinguishable from the base paper and the snow looks clean and white.
