Using a profile reduces the graininess >considerably, and sending RGB files to it works very well. I don't see any color-curve controls in the Birmy RIP driver. Where do I find these controls? I do see another application mentioned on Birmy's web site, but I haven't bothered to download it yet. Not even sure if it's applicable. More importantly: can you explain your 2nd sentence in a bit more detail? I agree that the RIP did reasonably well on an RGB image. But I have no idea of what this "profile" is that you speak of, how to create it, and how/ why it would affect graininess. So far, with this RIP, color quality has not been the issue. The issue is basic print quality. Even at 720x720, I believe the Epson driver does a much better job. And 720x1440 seems out of reach, for some reason; the RIP just won't go there. rafe b. -=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=- Please: Stay on topic.
