Mike,

 

A tip that Mark Nelson gave me is to use the ink configuration option found
in the Advanced Printer settings. This can be used to increase the amount of
inks by percentage increments of all colors, not just black. Of course some
testing and experimentation will be required.

Subject: inkjet negative density with Epson 2200 printer

 

Greetings all,

 

While calibrating my curve for kallitype printing I noticed that it was
nearly impossible to achieve a pure black without degrading the pure whites
at the same time because light was still transmitting through the 100% black
square on the step tab. I am currently using a non-colorized (B&W)
negative with the 2200 matte paper profile on Pictorico OHP film. What can
be done to improve the ink density on the negative to allow for pure whites
on the print?
