Geoff, You certainly do NOT need 720 DPI file size for printing Piezo!! 300 DPI is just fine. Maybe 360. no more is needed. Even 240 DPI looks great. The inks are brownish though, and that's the main reason I've moved away from piezo inks. That and the price. The black more or less depends on the paper you use. Some papers just cannot deliver a strong black, others can. Museo, Somerset Enhanced can't, Orwell/Royal Plush/Frankfurt/Eclipse/Epson Archival Matte.Torchon/Royal Riviera/Wells River/William Turner/German Etching Can. > Curiously, so too the tonality is a bit off - piezography prints seems > very subdued, almost sepia-like. There really isn't a strong black. Is > this the nature of the beast? Anything to be done about it? I've been complaining about the brown tones of this ink since it came out. Most people say it's neutral. It isn't to my eyes, its brown. and the whiter the paper you use, the browner it is. Under tungsten lights, the prints do appear to be neutral though.... > Also, there isn't a Cone profile for Epson's archival matte paper - does > anyone know of a comparable paper setting in their list or perhaps is > there an update? Somerset regular profile seems to be among the best for that paper. > Just wondering what other people thought.

The Piezo software prints at 2160 DPI, and you do NOT need a file size of 720 to get it. Jerry - Turn off HTML mail features. Keep quoted material short.
