Towards a better B&W test print? Help requested
6 months ago

I'm currently testing a couple of papers now being distributed by Canon (in the UK) under the Oce brand (Museo max 250 and Museo Silver rag). As part of this I'm specifically looking at B&W printing, and using the experience to update my longstanding (2005) B&W test image.

http://www.northlight-images.co.uk/article_pages/black_and_white_test.html

I know that it has been downloaded many thousands of times over the last few years and I was hoping that a few copies might have been tried by members of the forum?

So, what I wanted to know, was what parts of it were of particular use (or not)? There are a few parts I'm looking to replace/update, but I don't want to remove something that has proved useful.

The only definite change I want to make is to include a proper 51 step ramp in it, that can be used to help create QTR 'linearisation' profiles, such as one of the ones at:

I know what bits I find of most use, but that's perhaps because I created it Just wondered what others might find useful? For example, would having both A4 and Letter sized versions be of more help to US users?
