Linerization question


#1

Hi Walker (or anybody else?)
I trying to linearize a supplied curve for the Hahnemuhle PhotoRag Baryta.
I am working on the cool curve. I am using the supplied “Low GCO” curve. I have printed the 51 step chart and let dry 24 hours and when I put colorport readings into my “Error Corrector” it shows that my patches are printing much too dark. Attached is a screenshot.

Any ideas as to why it is so dark?

Thanks
Neil

Believe it or not, it’s not really that dark . . A difference in printer or print-head age can do this FYI. This is why this tool exists: to eliminate the difference in your printer/printhead or paper batch.

Take the smoothed data and run through the linearization workflow and you will be a’ok.

cheers,

Walker
