To all, Boy did I get a lesson in printing yesterday. I'm using the Generations inkset on DS Matte paper, and printing a group of Black and White photos. Did you know that as little as TWO points of color correction in the epson advanced dialogue boxes can make ALL THE DIFFERENCE IN THE WORLD as to if the inks change color or not when viewed under tungsten or flourescent lighting? I was printing at a basic setting of "Automatic", and generic gray profile in the space box. I had been using + 4 Magenta and +4 Yellow to get the prints to look perfect in daylight. Absolutely neutral! When those same prints were taken under tungsten light only, they were very red. When changing the setting to +2 Yellow, and +2 Magenta, the prints looked absolutely neutral under the flourescent and tungsten lighting. They still look more than acceptable in daylight, but there is just a HINT of cyan in them. Not enough to be objectionable. I couldn't believe that only 2 points could make this difference. Anyone know how so slight of an adjustment could make such a HUGE difference? Jerry - Please turn off HTML mail features. Keep quoted material short.
