Profile Editing

You can edit the paper tint value to tailor the proof profile to the white point of your current media, modify the color curves, for example to make a proof look more saturated in certain areas, and even change or modify the proofing condition.

  • In a Project, select a profile and click the Edit button next to the profile name.

Paper Tint

You can change the paper tint for visually adapting the media white to the media white of the final print product. For example, if you created a profile for a premium coated media and now want to use the same profile for a similar, but slightly more yellowish media, you can add 2% Yellow and use the same profile for the more yellowish media. The original paper tint values, which the profile has been calculated with, can always be retrieved from the Original column.

The paper tint can be changed in CMYK and is calculated into the profile (changing all color values).

Dot Gain Corrections

If you are not satisfied with the proof result, you can correct your curves accordingly. The corrections apply to all colors of the modified index values and can be entered into the table on the right side or made in the graphic view by directly manipulating the curves. The target values will be changed accordingly.

  • Add fulcrums by left-clicking the corresponding points on the visualized curve.
  • Remove fulcrums by right-clicking on a fulcrum.

For example, if the proof is not blue enough, add a 50% fulcrum in the Cyan curve and raise the curve a bit by clicking on the fulcrum and dragging it. This change will affect all colors with 50% Cyan.

We recommend to check your corrections by proofing smooth gradients from 0% to 100% for all primary inks of the profile before running production jobs.


On the Proofing tab, you can adapt the profile to changed proofing conditions such as a different proof printer or media. Select your new proofing condition from the drop-down list and have the profile converted to the new output color space.

If you want to add other simulation options such as Missing Dots or Noise, activate the respective option and edit the displayed default values.
