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
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.
I just wanted to thank you so very much for the respect shown to my one little print. The colours and printing are amazing and the packaging was something to behold, never have I seen such careful and thoughtful wrapping!
