Hello everyone

i was wondering what color and quality profiles you use to get the best image quality with your ip5000 for photo printing

i use ICM color, color balance at default 0, and intensity at +10

even in those settings things are not as good as a'd like - although very well

thing seem to improve -for blues- when i print in VIVID color through EASY-PHOTOPRINT, but that seems to screw the reds -some weird noisy highlights especially in skin tones-

so, what do u think are the best setting?

Have you tried what Steve used in his review of the iP4000?

The printers are almost identical, and except when printing on Photo Paper Pro they are identical!

The iP5000 only uses 1pl drops for "best quality" on Photo Paper Pro paper setting. On ALL other settings the iP5000 uses 2pl drops. (per Canon USA)

Are you sure? I didn't think that the ip5000 had 2pl nozzles, only the 5pl and 1pl. I could be totally wrong, and I would hope that I was totally wrong, but I thought the rather design of the pixmas, the main reason they had so many nozzles was the fact that they have nozzles dedicated to a given drop size.

i don't want to be misunderstood
i think the printer is great
it's resolution is beyond imagination

my concern is the skintones
i just can't make skin look "pink" enough, it's kind of yellowish, like people have some kind of african fever or sth

any suggestions?

se7en,

I have had the same problem concerning skin tones with my iP5000 printer. I owned an iP6000d printer for a little while, and I fear that it's 6-color printing at a lower resolution did indeed produce nicer photos than my iP5000 at the default settings.

In theory, however, the iP5000 should produce outstanding results. What printer settings (anything changed from default) work the best for optimum results? Any replies would be greatly appreciated... thanks!
