Paper profiles


Installing profiles for softproofing

Metro Imaging has the best colour management service that comes with running a long standing professional lab. The best way to test for colour is to download our test image and compare it to your screen. Alternatively, test your images for colour accuracy by ordering a test print.

Bespoke Service users do not need to worry about paper profiles. Self-Service users may use the profiles for soft proofing, but these will be applied by Metro Imaging to the file prior to printing.

Our professional photographic printing department is uniquely equipped to fulfil everything from standard to the most complex creative brief. We have designed our photographic printing services to meet needs of all levels, from simple Self-Service photo printing online, to in depth consultation and curation via our Bespoke service.

At Metro, we offer professional photo printing services online or in-house, with worldwide delivery available. Our C Type prints are produced with laser rather than LED printers, which creates a much sharper, high quality, real photographic print.

We only use professional photographic papers supplied by Fuji and Kodak, ranging from the classic C Type semi-matt, gloss, pure-matt velvet to metallic papers.

We are able to produce the largest and best professional C Type prints in the UK. Our prints can go up to 120 x 72 inches, giving you a huge choice when it comes to producing prints.
