Jamie Gannon wrote: What do we know about PhotoScript? <snip> I bought a copy of PhotoScript in September of 1998 following Seybold. Many people were demonstrating their wares using Epson 3000's and PhotoScript. We didn't get around to loading it until June of this year but it simply failed to print with unknown PostScript errors. But by then, the company had folded and we could no longer find technical support. However, their assets were recently bought by cadlink (as the *very* helpful link you provided indicates!) and so hopefully, technical support will again begin to flow. We may yet be able to get PhotoScript to work with ICC color matching, but that is quickly becoming a moot point. Adobe PressReady appears to be *the* RIP to get. It is true Adobe PostScript 3, supports the Epson 3000 (and other Epson and non-Epson ink-jet printers), supports PDF print-to-file (for pre-press file exchange with large-format fine arts printmakers), and was designed from the beginning to provide color correction. Adobe *is* PostScript, the same PostScript that Adobe licenses to printer manufacturers such as Apple. The other RIPs use emulations written by third-party developers. The introductory price for PressReady is $149, though the product has not yet shipped. (Maybe during the Seybold conference?) Thanks again, Jamie, for the very useful PhotoScript link! http://www.cadlink.com/photoscript/ Miller Abel Santa Cruz, CA - Please do not include an entire message in your response.
