  • It sounds like what you want to do is not download Nik Collection 2--which I bet you could still do, from DxO, if you were a current DxO licensee for Nik Collection 2--but instead newly license Nik ...
  • I seem to recall seeing Red River make some sort of claim to the effect that its Pecos River Gloss was 'exclusive in the United States ' or something like that, which suggests to me that some other ...
  • Replied in My test results
    You should not get any funky colors moving back and forth between PL and LR; both seem to be correctly and fully color-managed, and I did this for years without experiencing any issues. Beyond ...
  • The obvious answer of 'next glossy paper to try' is Canon PT-101 Pro Platinum . However, its overall color appears to me noticeably cooler than Canon PP-301 Plus Glossy II. I really like Red River ...
  • As Digital Nigel said, for the last several iterations, DxO has released a new major version of its main raw converter on the same relative day in late October. If that pattern holds, then he is ...
  • The relationship among the pixel dimensions of an image, the file size of a file containing that image, and how large you can print the image is way more complicated than that. You can print any ...

    I can only answer in part: "It installed in Photoshop and looks great. However, it did not install in PL5 , and uninstalled prior version in PL5!" Yes of course, the DxO Nik Collection 4 installer ...
  • Following up on Mike Earussi's basic point, AFAIK, all of the recent-ish 17" photo printers can handle 17x25" sheets just fine, and print 16x24" images on them. Red River probably has the widest ...
  • There is a large element of personal taste and workflow preferences. Also, I just (with the 50% off sale) got FilmPack 6 Elite, after having FilmPack 5 Essential for years, so I'm not experienced ...
  • That is true, according to the good scientific testing of which I'm aware (Aardenburg's and Wilhelm's), with the current Epson UltraChrome Pro10 inks for the P900 and P700, and most of the genuine ...
  • For the most part that is not true. Take a look at the scientific testing results from Aardenburg and Wilhelm regarding current materials. Although the results change depending on the specific ...
  • In the best scientific testing of which I'm aware (Aardenburg's), on some papers, the Canon ChromaLife 100+ dye inks test out about as fade-resistant as some of the well-known pigment photo inks. A ...
  • Other printers Over and above the Epson P5000, which Keith mentioned, there are rumors and suppositions about a replacement for the Canon Pro-1000. Maybe it will be announced tomorrow. However, ...
  • Sorry to hear about the circumstances of your printing / not printing. Hopefully somebody like Petruska will chime in, or maybe Mike Earussi; they're far more knowledgeable about theses things. But ...
  • Replied in Okay, but ...
    That's a good start of information. And maybe you know what I'm about to say. But selecting the right media type and quality settings in the driver is very important to getting the best results. An ...
  • Replied in Thanks everyone!
    I really appreciate all the responses. Sounds like I'll just go my usual Microsoft route, wait at least two weeks, and if no reports of trouble, update.
  • You mention everything except the ones that arguably matter most: what media settings and other settings are you using the in the printer driver? Do you have / are you using the right ICC profiles ...
  • Thanks, at least I'm not clueless for having missed something longstanding. I figure I ought to give it at least a couple of weeks for issues to emerge before I update that.
  • Created question thread Windows 10, version 21H2?
    Just now the updates on my computer running Windows 10 Home said that version 21H2 is available. I haven't seen much on this. Anyone used it for a while? Any known substantial issues or ...
  • If you have a local college with a photo or art department, it or some of its students might really like to have the paper. As for the ink cartridges, there seems to be a pretty good market for ...
