  • I use Windows Task Scheduler, Irfanview, and Bill Atkinson's 14 balls image to automatically run a test print every few days. https://www.dropbox.com/sh/ka35g3gtyd10823/-FRLLos-8N/Fourteen%20Balls.tif
  • I agree that the Canson and Epson Legacy papers are identical for all intents and purposes.  Certainly, I can't see any differences between them and like you I have compared them side by side.  I ...
  • Paper may be a personal decision but you will be hard pressed to do any better than the Epson Legacy Baryta, Platine, and Fibre papers. Personally I prefer the Platine to the Baryta but it does ...
  • If you are getting a surface that is completely smooth and that doesn't show any waviness or orange peel on close inspection then that would suggest that ArtResin is worth the extra money compared ...
  • You shouldn't think about it as being your fault.  The epoxy has a very high surface tension and surprisingly poor adhesion to both matte and glossy photos.  I've had a number of places where the ...
  • I wanted to give you an update on my experiments with coating photos with an Epoxy Resin.  This is my experience using a resin called SC110.  I have no idea how it compares to a product called ...
  • Hmm, I don't think I had anything silicone or silicone based as part of my workflow but that is the kind of thing you might end up using without knowing it.  I wouldn't be surprised if the paint ...
  • Ha, you are definitely right that applying the coatings is never easy.  I never had any luck with the aerosol print protectors like Moab Desert Varnish even though many people recommended it. Thank ...
  • Created discussion thread Coating photos with Epoxy Resin
    After I saw a post on here about a month ago about coating photos with an epoxy resin I decided to give it a try. The post: https://www.dpreview.com/forums/post/59016955 specifically talked about ...
  • You will change ink a little more frequently with the 160 ml cartridges but once you run through those and start using the larger capacity cartridges you aren't going to be changing ink frequently ...
  • I haven't read through all the posts on here so forgive me if this duplicates information others have posted.  I have a Canon iPF8400 and an Epson 3880.  I bought the Canon iPF8400 about two years ...
  • I use 72" Tablecraft sliding order check racks to hold my 17x22" prints for short to medium term viewing. This brand seems to be hard to find now. http://www.wasserstrom.com/restaurant-supplies-equ ...
  • Breathing Color has a new product called PhotoPeel that comes in a gloss and matte coating that is quite a bit better than Phototex when it comes to the quality of the printing although I am ...
  • Replied in Paper....
    Right, I did focus more on the quality side of the question although right now with the rebates the pricing of the Epson Legacy papers is pretty compelling but still not competitive with the Epson ...
  • Replied in Paper....
    I find it odd that none of the people that have responded to your post have suggested the Epson Legacy papers. These are essentially rebranded equivalents to the Canson Platine, Baryta, Fibre Rag ...
  • Phototex is amazing but prints really don't look very good on it. But if that dull look isn't a problem for you, Atlex has 17"x100' rolls for only $45 which is an incredible price. http://www.atlex ...
  • Also, before you pull the trigger on the iPF6400 you should know that right now Atlex is running a special deal on the Canon Pro 4000 that is compelling. With rebates the price of the printer ...
  • I'm not quite sure where I came up with this number, I think it was from the in printer accounting system, but I use $0.58 per square foot for the ink cost on my iPF8400 using the 330ml ...
  • I'm not sure if this is hijacking the thread but why would printing on paper and then laminating it with either a gloss or matte film and then mounting that on either Sintra or dibond and then ...
  • The recent $269 sale price on the Rokinon 14mm F2.8 AS IF ED UMC tempted me to buy two copies of the lens in the Sony FE lens mount. Both of the lenses had severe distortion but Lightroom did a ...
