Since a few weeks I own an Epson 7880 and I’m very pleased with the results. The colours on the monitor, Lacie321, match almost for 100% the output of the 7880.
But now I’m trying to make B&W-prints and that is an other story. If I make all the settings the same if it were a RGB-file the results are fine and almost spot on.
But when I choose in the Epsonprinterdriver for “black advanced” instead of “colour” the results are far to light even when setting the “tint” to “darkest” in the advanced B&W window.
I can offcourse use the luminance and contrastsliders in this window to get the most pleasing result but it seems to me that it is not the right way to do this.
Is this normal or do I something wrong. Are there special profiles for the Advanced B&W setting?
