Hi everyone. I'm new to the forum and to quad printing. But hopeful... I've loaded the printer, was careful to put the right ink in the right cartridge. That worked - all the new cartridges were recognized. In this order I updated the mac software - running 10.7.5 then updated the driver for my Epson 3880. Read the manuals (naturally and in my limited case - several times) and installed Quad Tone Rip - and then installed Print-tool.
Alas - following Jon's very good instructions to the letter in his video, I'm still getting these dark - solarized prints. So I'm surmising that as written elsewhere on the net - that Apples Colorsync is somehow getting access to the Tif file and causing havoc. The only symptom or clue that I have is that in the printing dialog box that the driver (?) sends up... if I click on Color Setting Box (pull down) it notes that colorsync is doing the color matching NOT the quad tone rip. That's I suspect problematic - no? I imagine that it is something basic - but I've spent a lot of time (and paper) fiddling on different options. So far no goal.
Anybody have ideas? I thought what I might do is upgrade the operating system to 10.9.x that should help. I looked at the colorsync utilities and "verified" the settings. Found 13 errors that were not correctable.
Any ideas? Many thanks in advance.
All best, Robin:
