Anyone else ever seen this problem? I am printing w/Epson 5500, Canon D30 files, ISO 800 out of PS 6.0.1 on a Mac w/USB connection straight from the back of the box. Printing on Epson Premium Luster paper, Photo 1440, High Speed Off. The problem is worse with high speed on. I am seeing vertical banding running parallel to the length of the paper in the darker mid tones to shadow areas of the file. This is not micro banding but rather a very soft edge banding about 1/4" apart and 1/4" in width. This does not occur in all files. If the banding occurs in a particular file being printed out of PS it also shows being printed out of PageMaker but the banding will be located differently. This occurs whether the file, which is landscape, is being printed in the portrait or landscape mode. It also occurs if I rotate the file vertically and then print portrait. This is happening in several files, with or without sharpening applied. This banding is not visible on screen in any channel. Does this mean that there is something wrong with the D30 files or does it have something to do with the Epson driver? The only suggestion the Epson had was to turn off the high speed setting, which it did help but not completely. They also suggested printing out of different apps to see if the problem still existed. Starting to get desperate. Thanks, Mark -- Mark Romine MARK ROMINE PHOTOGRAPHY 227 Fairway Drive Bloomington, IL 61701 309-662-4258 http://www.markrominephoto.com - Turn off HTML mail features.
