Snap and luminescense in prints
Sep 6, 2008

After several years I decided that it was time to try and up my printing a bit. So CS3, a IPF5100 in addition to 9180, new monitor, spyder 2, and start working in adobe rgb 1998, at least that is the plan.

At the moment though this new monitor is amazing and very clear and bright, but it isn't translatng to the paper, either B&W and/or color. working with some photo rag and bright whilte cotton, and a bit of satin. some are ok but I'm really wanting to know what is the focus to duplicate that snap that I see on the monitor or must I just accept that it will always be duller etc. I have looked at several grayscales and I can cover and see the increments, and I calibrated with the spyder 3 pro.

In other words, where do I need to start looking to start working on this---ron s.
