Just got a new HP9180 printer and was wondering if anyone using this printer has successfully output B&W on any of the newer photo-type papers such as Museo Silver Rag, Hah Fine Art Pearl, or Innova F-type gloss?
Along with the printer I ordered some Silver Rag, downloaded the 9180 profile from Crane's website (no instructions, though...odd) and tried printing a B&W photo that I had tinted toward sepia in PS. The B&W image is, of course, tagged with a color color space rather than GG 2.2. It came out very dark and didn't reveal any of the tint color. I tried printing the image both from the plug-in and the more typical Print with Preview. Not good! I, also, printed it as grayscale and the tinting, of course, is non-existent, and it seems rather "bluish" in the indirect light of my workroom.
Anybody had any good luck with any of these papers? What settings, etc, are you using? Plug-in or P w/P?
Thanks for any help provided.
