Do you have an old fashion darkoom in your house? I would bet it's happening to more than 3%, but I don't think Epson has released any hard stats. I've been lucky in that GPP and HWM have not yet shifted indoors. PGPP and Glossy Film shift within a couple weeks for me, indoors. My printer is still usable for personal use, but it's frustrating because some of my high contrast storm shots, that I would like to display, only come out right on PGPP. Any way, to answer your questions: * No darkroom in my home. * I could simply protect my PGPP prints. * I wonder, however, every time I give somebody else a print. Although I can't say I sell prints professionally, I'm doing an increasing amount of digital restoration for family/friends, and have an increasing number of friends asking for 8x10's of some of my shots. Even though I warn them, I'm just waiting for the day when I get a call or letter asking why a print turned orange. Daniel L. Taylor Owner, Taylor Design Macintosh and PC consulting and software.
