New Tint & Tone Controls
New tint and tone controls over the four monochromatic shades allow a user to create even more expressive blacks with smoother gradations – especially in dark areas. Found in both the Printer Driver and Print Plug-in for Adobe Photoshop, the new tone control in the monochrome photo mode includes adjustments for: Soft Tone, Middle Tone, Medium Hard Tone, Hard Tone, and Strong Hard Tone.
A tint control has also been added to the Print Plug-in for Photoshop. This new option gives users the ability to affect the white space on an image. By adding monochromatic ink to an images’ white space, the user can improve gloss control in a black and white image, allowing them greater control on how their final printed output will appear.
High Speed Printing with Fewer Passes
On best print mode, the order of ink application and layering is optimized to maintain the highest print quality with fewer passes, making this mode twice as fast. In high and standard print modes, print density within a single pass of the heads is optimized to reduce unevenness and support fewer passes as well.
This new printer includes an upgraded, built-in Colour densitometer that’s designed to offer even more precise calibration and Colour matching. Using a three-Colour LED and a newly developed condenser lens the sensor enables accurate recalibration of the device, allowing users to maintain a low average printer-to-printer Colour difference. Automatic Colour calibration is finished quickly after a few simple steps on the printer’s operation panel. A single Colour calibration performed with one type of media can be applied to media in all printing modes.
Colour Calibration Systemorma
The Colour Calibration Management Console is included for the centralized management of networked printers in a system from one easy to use software tool. This unique feature enables colour calibration targets created using the iPF6450 printer with optional spectrophotometer to be linked across the entire line of new 12 colour imagePROGRAF devices. A printer’s administrator can monitor and manage each printer in a remote location. Linking colour calibration targets among multiple printers allows colour calibration for custom media to be performed on printers not equipped with a Spectrophotometer Unit.
