Printer Test Images

Note the PhotoDisc Targets are Stuffit (.sit) files, and the Digital Dog file is in hqx format. Most Macintosh users already have the software to deal with these images, but Windows users typically don't. You can get a free utility from Aladdin Systems to that will make the files usable on Windows, Macintosh, and Linux systems.
Here's the link to the Aladdin Systems Expander: http://www.aladdinsys.com/expander/

You can save this image on your own computer and play with it to your heart's content.

    Here's how to do it with Internet Explorer running under Windows:
  • Right-click on the image
  • Select "Save Picture As..."
  • Choose the drive and directory you want to save the file in
  • Click on "Save"

You can also save the file using Netscape or even while browsing using the Mac (where the concept of right-clicking is somewhat foreign). On a Mac with Netscape position the cursor on the picture then press and hold the mouse button. After about a second a menu will pop up -- choose "Save this Image as ...".

  Fuji Calibration image from www.querandi.demon.co.uk. Normally I prefer to link to other sites that have already posted what we are looking for, but this one is buried in frames and it's hard to tell people how to get to the image. So I've copied it here merely as a matter of convenience. I do strongly recommend you go to the site and look at their tutorials and other material.

This sRGB image is 5" x 7" at 300dpi and is just under a megabyte. It will take some time to load.

I developed a series of test panels to see how smoothly one color blends into another. I did this because some profiles I was creating gave rise to very bizarre prints of skies. What was happening was that the profiles had some artifacts in them that caused a 50% blue, 48% green, 0% red to look very similar to a 52% blue, 48% green, 0% red, but neither was at all close to a 51% blue, 48% green, 0% red. But that third color was supposed to be between the other two!
