Bob, Regarding the 'purples' - If you are referring to the patches at C7 and D7 on the scanned example labeled "Fuji\CC", what is displayed on the PGPP,1270, Control is for closer to correct than the Fuji. Make sure your color settings, for the purposes of comparison, for CMYK are set to US Web Coated SWOP. If you will pull the Fuji and your Master image into PS and set your Color Sampler to display both RGB and CMYK and compare the difference in the numbers, you will see that the Fuji is way too Cyan on the 'Magenta' (C7 & D7, 47 and 60 points respectively) patches. The 'Reds' also suffer from this as well, to a lesser extent. While, this 'Purple' may be a pleasing color to see, it is not what you would want output to the printer for these RGB or CMYK numbers. Perhaps you only meant to describe the achievable hue and not the accuracy of the hue, in which case, I understand your comments. Regards, Mark K.
