on post win10 systems FYI (Roy did not program it.)

I remember when QTRGui was introduced and I believe the author's name was Tom Moore. And there were one or two other developers working on the Apple side. Too bad the source code for QTRGui is gone. It would be nice to be able to run it from a command line, Never the less I've been able to make some very nice split toned prints with QTRGui running an Epson 2200.

I used Cone inks back when I had the driver for the Epson 1160. So I'm a long time customer of IJM. I've met Jon at SPE nationals. I led a local user group when we all lusted over an Epson 3000 and Piezo prints looked kind of funky.

I'll adjust ...

Hi, Bill,
You asked for a description of my test exposure system. Have you tried what I described in the link provided? It certainly is not a complex procedure.

Attached are some examples of use of the extra raw-accessible DR determined by the described procedure.

It is a system that I and others have found to work well.

If you are satisfied that you are using your camera's full complement of extra raw-accessible DR, I'd be the last to suggest you change what you are doing.

If you do give it a try, I'd be interested in your results .

Best regards,

Probably a dumb question but could someone explain why you delve into jpeg when you can shoot raw and then assign the film profile in Lightroom?  This lets you look at a myriad of effects non destructively.  What am I missing??  Thanks!

When you set the camera to a film simulation you see the film simulation in the EVF and LCD. If you shoot B&W this most likely will be a revelation to actually see in B&W.

No need to dualboot. Just use virtual machine (Linux is incredibly light system resource user.)

Also, it's easier than one might think to install OS X on PC hardware. The non prof I started in Chicago ( has been doing it for half a decade. You can build machines that way at a fraction of the cost of Apple hardware that are frankly even more stable. OS X is a great system on any hardware. Just have to edit a few kexts. It breaks EULA but it's worth it in my opinion.

Try it and see.

It was announced today that the USA is considering banning laptops and by definition digital photography equipment from hand luggage on all flights.  I feel sure that this is a trend that will continue.  Pretty soon we will have to check our expensive equipment (never to see it again), wait for hours with our shoes and belt in our hands, holding up our trousers, while we are body searched for bombs and other dangerous substances.

Here in Europe, because of human rights laws, old age pensioners with impeccable histories are subjected to the same intrusive appraisal as 20 year old immigrants on their way from or to centres of ethnic or religious violence.

I am seriously questioning the viability, given the BA problems in the UK and the foregoing, whether it is worth the effort to travel to interesting photographic locations.  Am I being paranoid or what?

Paranoid no, deeply bothered and disrupted yes.
I no longer fly but use train travel and do not go to places that would force air travel. I just do not want the bother.

Dear Don, part of why I'm building the driver to support any flavor of nix system here. supporting Linux or variant thereof is long-term-viable and we can distro a virtual appliance easily for anyone on windows. This way they can update their windows machines forever without worrying about breaking their print workflow.

Walter I appreciate your efforts and you two Richard.

I won't bloviate anymore about Apple other than to mention I watched Jobs at an exclusive presentation years ago demo'ing the Next Cube. Billed as the last computer we would need; of course that was when he was competing with Apple. Next came the pizza box Next.

Before that, introduction of the Lisa broke new ground. You know the history. I'm just tired of purchasing computers. The late Judy Siegel used to rue the continuous upgrading paths. I'll talk to IJM tomorrow to get a Piezo-Flush kit for the migration of color to PP B&W. Perhaps being able to use cheap used Macs is much better than buying expensive new Macs. I have several extremely fast and powerful i7 based PCs on my LAN. If Apple would allow PC owners to run their OS's then I probably wouldn't be so sour.

Thanks for your dedication and hard work. The world needs young guys like you and Richard to forge the new ways for printing nirvana. I can understand only wanting to develop and support an open source system. But I can tell you from experience that there are pitfalls to watch out for so it's not as perfect a solution as it might seem. At least you are now blessed with fast PCs for running Linux. Now if you come up with something that allows me to use a dual boot a lower end PC when I need to print I may be more tempted than using an Apple. Least we forget the symbolism of the bite of knowledge from the apple grown in the garden of good and evil. Apple sycophants have been paying the price ever since.

The customize color tab's contorl Hue provides only in effect a Tint control - a magenta\pink axis/

It's all three axes (the "tint" is the hue axis), you can make modification in a gamut sphere around the anchor color, just not that many DE. If the patch is several DEs off then there is something really wrong though.

Thanks, Datro, however I think you have specified the method for printers other than the new 7000/9000 ones. What you describe is how I do it with my 7900. However, I do not know how to get into a true "Service Mode" with the 7000/9000 series. What these machines call "Service Mode", visible in the LCD menu for all to see, does not appear to have the capabilities that the "Service Mode" with my 7900 has, and specifically I did not see what you are describing when I looked at a demo machine a while back. Am I missing something here? I think we need to know how to put these new machines into a "true" Service Mode.

Thanks again.

The steps I outlined above are for the P9000.  I have both the 7900 and the P9000 here in my studio.

Yes, the Service Mode menu is very different between the two printers, however the way to get there is the same on both series of printers.  If you know how to get into Service Mode on a 7900 then you know how to get there on a P9000.  Once in Service Mode on a P9000, you will see only a very small set of options (compared to the older printers).  There is no longer a "Wiper Exchange" menu, however the "PG Adj." and "Un Cap" does exactly the same thing:  it releases the carriage and allows it to be carefully moved out of the way.
