I got an Epson ff-680w but can't find any way to color correct the scans using a calibrated profile. My understanding is that this is the main thing to look out for when trying to scan in archive quality. How would I build a color calibration profile and apply that to the scanned images?

  • Do you have a reference chart & profiling software?

  • @Tetsujin - I have the i1 Profiler by xrite and need to buy the reference chart. If I buy the reference chart and create the profile, how would I color correct?

  • Since you have I1Profiler, do you also have a printer and I1Pro spectro? There are ways to make scanner profiles with Argyll software. They are pretty easy to use. You attach them to the scanned image then convert to sRGB or Adobe RGB in Photoshop.

  • @PhilipKendall It isn't clear that the OP has the tools to make scanner profiles which is why I asked. If he does, which is probably unlikely, then I can post an answer. Otherwise it wouldn't be helpful.
