Converging thought patterns...

Just this week I saw a two (split) tone Photoshop action in my palette
and tried it out. It is a duotone using a cyan and 'chocolate' ink
color. It looked promising, but way too cold for my taste. I assume
one could recreate, alter or start from scratch to use duotone (or
tri- or quad-tone) settings and get something printable in RGB.

This was in the production action set of CS. I notice it isn't in CS2

        Good thinking. I will return to the testing kitchen once Tiger
installed and begin from scratch. So far
my experience is admittedly short of working with the PhotoRag but I
have made comparison prints withe
German Etching and at least what I printed is similar enough to demand

close attention.
        If you wish, once I do more tests I'll be happy to post
evaluation and tests with the ColorSavvy Mouse. As for those gorgeous
split tones, which I presume is something similar to a selenium toning

on a warm-tone fiber paper, the answer is most likely the ImagePrint
RIP or similar product. It is costly but once all the pieces are in
lace what with paper, RIP, inks, color management, the consistency is
