I was wondering why you described sandwiching the negatives together
at your website. Now I understand that this is because you are not
getting adequate density with your dye-based HP printer. This
information obviously raises a number of questions about the
sharpness issues in the test comparisons you made.

Just for the record, all of the Epson pigmented-ink printers (with
Epson inks of course), on Pictorico, give plenty of density for
pt/pd printing.
