Not satisfied with the blacks with the MIS pigmented inkset, I got some beta black from Mediastreet. Beta is considerably blacker. I noticed that the deepest black was at level 5, not 0. I think that the pigment sits on the surface and creates a microscopically rougher surface that appears lighter. Dye based ink leaves little or nothing on the surface. More ink with pigmented ink isn't blacker. The output sliders in the levels box in PS can help to limit the amount of ink laid down. But this is less than inconvienient. Any other tonal corrections will change this setting so it must be done last just before printing. Today I put in an OEM black cartridge. What a difference! Deeper blacks with better shadow detail. It compliments the MIS inks well. I noticed that level zero has none of the dusty pigmented look, leading me to believe that the epson driver uses only black ink at level zero. If CM and Y were there too it should appear dusty. TomW - Please turn off HTML mail features. Keep quoted material short. Use accurate subject lines. http://www.leben.com/lists for instructions.
