I haven’t tried it, but it is a different sort of RIP than something like X-Photo which is not complicated at all, by the way. Go to original post. She asked me what paper they were on and stood there with her mouth open when I told her. And before anyone mentions it, Qimage will not solve this problem for the either. An expensive aftermarket RIP does the same thing, but is typically of much higher control and quality.

But a clorburst has only a limited number of ink colors typically 4 to 8 to lay down on the paper to mimic the millions of possible pixel colors.

Would save you the time and file management of an extra. And no, the statement that no one needs a RIP is not correct, some actually do. I don’t think the value is there to buy the packaged RIP’s with the printers, as they don’t allow profiling or updating profiles, the last I checked.

My advice is not to worry about using a RIP unless one has very specialized needs. Eyedropper tool causes crashes Photoshop CS6. I just create Tiff files of the image I want to print and drag and drop them into the print dolorburst of the rip.

ColorBurst RIP

Select the paper settings and colorvurst profile. All of the fine art digital printing houses use them–regardless of whether they are printing a postscript file. Otherwise, you can just use the print driver. No one needs a rip, except as maybe suggested by those above, but the reality is that all of the fine art printers I know use them.

If not, then don’t get one, if you try it not sure you can test Colorburst X-photo or not as my version requires a hardware dongle inserted into a usb port on the host computer.

Did this used to work in the past? Although I really like the output of the ABW driver, QTR is a much more flexible solution for monochrome printing and is more archival too less prone to differential fading. I haven’t tried it, but it is a different sort of RIP than something like X-Photo which is not complicated at all, by the way.

Good luck and enjoy! A friend, who uses the Epson drivers came over and was looking at several large work prints I made on a paper she has used a cheaper paper I use for proofing those larger files before I commit them to my fine art paper. She asked me what paper they were on and stood there with her mouth open when I told her.

As I said, I don’t print through photoshop and when I tried, earlier versions were difficult, I just couldn’t get it to work satisfactorily probably me. Any ideas why this happens? Is this really true? I haven’t used X-proof, but I would be surprised if there isn’t instructions or a manual download that is available. The printer driver can proof single images to a good visual match.

I’ll look a little more carefully at the Postscript options when outputting. Running it through its own interface, the drag and drop Tiff thing I mentioned, it was much easier and you know there is no interference between the two software products–you will know you are seeing what the RIP does without contamination, real or imagined!

Normally your printer driver does this conversion for you whenever you print.

It typically takes many printer dots to make co,orburst single image pixel. The RIP has such a fine screen that you have to feed it files at around the dpi level a little lower maybe or it will actually colorbursst the pixels, unlike the print drivers that will allow fairly low dpi prints to be printed without the same issue.

The latter keeps things consistent over the life of your printer, as it wears and its characteristics may change or inks change–also not complicated once you do it a couple of times. I haven’t looked at the features of Overdrive, so I don’t know if it has the ability to make custom profiles or to re-linearize any given profile.

Plotter making random solid color colorbursy. My typical workflow is to output.
