Paper makes a huge difference with these inks. Here's some good settings for the "Print" dialog: In the Epson print dialog, set media type to "inkjet back light film", inks to "color", space to "greyscale." Select "custom settings", then press the "Advanced" button, then set print quality to "Photo-1400", halftoning to "error diffusion", mode to "no color adjust." You really should be getting wonderful prints - keep posting if your results don't improve. cheers, Dale Strumpell ----------- My public pgp key can be accessed at <http://www.pgpkeys.mit.edu>. - Turn off HTML mail features.
