I have just printed my first print using the Piezography system. I can tell that this is going to be fun.
I have a print that was printed for me at Cone Editions Studio that I’m trying to replicate on my
7900. The print had listed the ink blends that were used, so I copied these. I used LRoom to process
the image, but that is where the image came from that I sent to CES. I set mine to TIFF with the
embedded profile of AdobeRGB (1998)–I understand that this profile is 16 bit with a gamma of 2.2
Below is a shot of the two prints side by side. The CES print pops off of the page and has a real depth to it.
Mine is flat and muddy, and that is being optimistic. I was unable to use all of the channels on my 7900, so
I lost two tints of the Pro ink set–the lightest shades.
This looks nothing like it does on my monitor, and it is calibrated (ColorMunki, iMac 27"). I get great
results with my color 7900 from monitor to print, but not using this system.
I would like to know what steps to take so that I can get the same results that are achieved at CES.
Do I need a dedicated monitor? Do I need a better colorimeter? Do I need the Pro edition tools?
So I need to start using Photoshop?
I should be able to get the same results as CES using the same equipment and inks? Correct?
Thank you, Daniel
