Yes, with the caveat that the artist may not like the effect unless it is dialed back a bit in Photoshop--depends on the image, of course. But the polarizing filter is an essential tool and probably the only reason I've hung on to my Spectroscan. When you need it you really need it. > > > On Dec 23, 2010, at 3:34 PM, Mike Strickler wrote: > >> On Terry's observation about polarized readings and artificially high d-max and saturation: This is why I use the pol filter only when necessary (with glossy overlam there's no other way), but it's pretty easy to adjust this effect in Photoshop, or I suppose one could do some global edits of the profile. > > > Let's just say that use of the polarization filter is not recommend for proofing applications where color accuracy is critical.....but for unique substrates such as textured matte fine art papers and canvas, polarization can produce some outstanding results. It also has the effect of "buffering" optical brighteners....it gives the effect of something in between full UV-exclude and UV-include filters. With papers that have a a fair amount of OBAs, I usually find neither full UV include/exclude gives the best visual results but usually an average of both...something that polarization seems to do automatically. Of course, with the Spectroscan, you better have some time on your hands because an already slow instrument is made even slower with the POL filter. > > Terry > > > > ------------------------------ > > _______________________________________________ > Colorsync-users mailing list > email@hidden > http://lists.apple.com/mailman/listinfo/colorsync-users > > End of Colorsync-users Digest, Vol 7, Issue 287 > *********************************************** _______________________________________________ Do not post admin requests to the list.
