I called IJM yesterday to ask why P2 didn’t have a GO curve. The person I spoke with explained that there is not a separate GO curve for gloss in P2. I should just use the “regular” curve with a second pass through the printer for GO coat. Later on I realized I wasn’t quite sure how I’d do that. How would the printer “Know” whether I was using the curve for the first or second pass. I guess I’m just confused.
I have some other Q’s about the process, though:
- Do I print thru QTR at 1440dpi and bidirectional speed. This is what the New Manual says to do for K7 GO.
- Do I make a 1x1 inch pure white image at 300ppi in photoshop to use with GO. Again, this is per manual for K7. I used Levels slider to far right to make a pure white image from an existing image. This should work, right. Does it matter if the image is larger than 1x1 inch.
- Does this image need to be a TIFF file.
- For K7 the manual says you can edit the GO curve to adjust how much GO is used. I assume this can’t be done with P2, as there is no GO curve.
I looked at the knowledge base and this forum, but couldn’t anything. I know P2 is new (not even available on web site yet), so I apologize in advance to IJM team if I’ve caused any problems by ordering P2 a little early.
I think that’s it. Thanks in advance for your help.
