This is the classic printer test image from PhotoDisc International (PDI). It is an industry standard printer test image that has a range of various tones and colours, including skin tones, deep blacks, different levels of saturation and shadow details, that are useful for print evaluation.
It is very beneficial that you use an image that is independent of your own work to evaluate your print workflow. Using a standardised test file means any issues/mistakes in your own workflow are removed from the print evaluation process.
You can download the file below to test your own printer & profile setup. You can also purchase a print of this image made on a properly profiled setup here at Image Science to evaluate versus your own results.

Just dropping you a line to let you know I am DELIGHTED with the quality of my print job.
Each of the papers lived up to my expectations and complemented each style of matched photo.
I especially loved the metallic sheen of the Chromajet metallic pearl. It showed off the abstract print to perfection! Thank you so much! What a difference a fine art printing makes. I will be singing your praises.....
