Ok, I'll take a look at that setting. Thanks for the tip. Does anyone know if one profile tends to lay down more ink than another (glossy vs matte or some of the other newer profiles available for download from the Epson web site)?

  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.

  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?
