Hi Jerry, Is the glow you're describing from using the Layer > Effects > Outer Glow application in Photoshop? If so, I tried it and got a very nice 50-pixel glow around a picture against a black background. You're not going to want to hear this, but the glow prints very well on a 1200, fading smoothly out to black, even using Generations ink on Epson Photo paper. It doesn't look as good on a 740 - fading more abruptly to black and looking quite dotty under a 4-power loupe. I presume this is a 4-color printer limitation - this kind of subtle fading is exactly where the 6-color printers shine. How are Scooter and Thumper? Roger Smith - Please turn off HTML mail features.
