One of the problems with most of the transparent media for desktop digital
negatives has been the slow, and often incomplete, drying. Has anyone tried
Ansel Adams' test-print technique of using a microwave oven for controlled
drying? Joachim

Hi Dan,

I use Westjet transapency from Westar Solution with Epson 1280's. One 1280
is setup with dye inks and the other with pigmented inks; both from It is recommended that you only print using black ink but I
find that printing grayscale with all colors give a smoother negative. I
haven't seen any puddleing though the transparencies take a day or two to
dry at 50% RH. Generally I dry them with a blowdryer on hot and they are
ready in minutes. Westar will also send samples if you call or email them.

Regards, Scott
