There are a lot of profile conversions in your workflow, and several of them are unnecessary. So, of all the different outputs, which is my favorite? To adjust the color balance, select an option from the dropdown menu or drag the color sliders. In addition to using the Piezography system inks for prints, you might want to look into using inkjet printers for making film positives or negatives for making traditional black-and-white contact prints using silver gelatin or hand-coated platinum papers. The QuadTone RIP allows us to design a curve structure that prints dots of ink always touching and adjacent to each other.

In Photoshop Print dialog shown above, we start by making sure we have the correct printer selected. For example, printing legend R. In addition to using the Piezography system inks for prints, you might want to look into using inkjet printers for making film positives or negatives for making traditional black-and-white contact prints using silver gelatin or hand-coated platinum papers.
If you want you can apply a sepia, colr, warm tone to your image at that stage. The default Tone value is Darker, but even Epson and several well respected print masters have suggested that darker is a poor place to start your ABW printing.
I tried looking into it further, but it was easier to edit the quad curves directly than making Photoshop adjustment curves layers from the spreadsheet spson.
I haven’t used my in a while, so it’s always possible that a driver update could have changed this. What this exercise taught me on my own test image is that I may need to brighten epskn the jeans in post-processing to get the best overall result, but that Dark is the correct ABW printer driver setting. Epsno you choose depends on you own workflow and image adjustment needs. So which of the two soft proofing methods discussed is better?
I like his idea of. Alice in wonderland is replicated better by seven shades rather than three shades because of simple mathematics.
NOTE There is a difference in the usability between the Canon printer driver and the Canon Photoshop plug-in when printing to e;son images. The color toning options are effectively presets of the horizontal and vertical values shown on the color wheel to the right of the before and after images.
Thanks for your agw, as you had me questioning my sanity when I read your workflow and tried to understand and replicate it.
Piezography resolution in comparison to Epson ABW
The sepia split-tone image in Lightroom and the scan of the final color print. You must log in or sign up to reply here. If you try Quad Tone RIP and decide you really want to go down an even deeper rabbit hole of ultimate black-and-white printing, I have a suggestion for you: Learn how your comment data is processed.
I worked it out for digital negatives a few days ago, and just now tweaked it for straight inkjet prints.
Verify you have chosen the correct image orientation. We created a file of incredible resolution — the text of Alice in Wonderland reduced to 1pt size would replicate a high resolution photograph — but present something that is easier to understand and view in a side-by-side when magnified.

You may need to print to see the real impact of your changes, rather than relying on soft-proofing using the after image. What i see is always what i get printed. If you rpson not after neutral BW, then you use the color mode way of printing.
Epson eppson this into three inks. Thanks for supporting this blog by using the links! However, if you want to really dive into a deeper level of black-and-white printing, I suggest using a special third-party raster image processor RIP.
It is for this reason that I HIGHLY recommend you chose one value and always use that value, and then modify your source image to get the desired black level. This is done to get better color gradations of the color gamut.
Particularly when printing neutral images, there is a tendency to have the prints contain a slight tint or color cast. The opinions provided are of Ron Martinsen alone and do not reflect the view of any other entity. I use the toning for my “optimized for web” version and for when I print in color.
