Hi everyone, after years of playing with curves in PS and eyeballing prints, I’ve found the new DN linearisation process a revelation. I’ve got beautiful 129 step tablet in the wash - I can just see the tablet line between 0-1, and 99-100 - with a great change in tonality throughout - excellent work Walker. Currently I’m printing on a stock of COT320 kindly donated by Bergger, although the DMAX isn’t as good as the Hahnemuehle Plat Rag, I’m starting to print a delicate warm tone portfolio which suits the COT320 better. Printing in pure palladium plus homemade FO, developed in Potassium Oxalate that I first made up in 2010.
I’m going to dry overnight and create an ICC - and then start printing those images I could never get to work well in the past.
Its a silly question, but I can I use this same linearisation technique using the same tools to correct for positive images printed on rag308 and fine art baryta? I’m getting too much of a step between 100% black and 97-99 leading to a type of posterisation effect in the shadows.
Cheers - I’ll scan some images and post as they dry etc
