b&W Printing using profiles

I am a reasonably experienced printer and photographer. I profile paper using x-rite when no profiles are available. My question is:

What is the best way of reproducing the Monochrome image displayed on the screen? Using the icc color profile and setting the image in photoshop to B&W?

Using just the printer and tossing out any profile by setting the printer to B&W mode?

Doing a special B&W profile?

 

Anyone have experience with this?

Re: b&W Printing using profiles

I have a Canon Pro-1000 printer. I print from photoshop using the Canon Print Studio Pro module. I run windows 10 on a very fast computer I built, with a 8 GB GPU.

Re: b&W Printing using profiles

Hi Stevejayd.

 

If you're using Photoshop and are printing a non-Black and White monochrome (such as Sepia), then your best bet is going to be using one of Photoshop's filters before printing, and maintaining color profiles in Print Studio Pro.


If you're printing Black and White, with or without minor tone adjustments, you may wish to use the settings in Print Studio Pro for Black and White printing.

Re: b&W Printing using profiles

Is there an advantage to not use the Print studio pro option ?
I am using a special
paper which has no profile. I created a B&W profile for it using X-Rite Istudio1. I would then select the paper profile in the Pro Studio interface and print like it was in color though it is just a B&W image. (I do not use any tone in my photos)

Thanks,

Steve
