New Epson Printer Support Now Available

P600 and P800

Quad Tone Rip is a versatile software package that offers a simple turnkey method of printing black & white images on a variety of inkjet printers. It is both easy to use for a novice user who is just starting to print digital B&W photographs and yet powerful enough for the advanced user who wishes to customize, calibrate and profile their entire workflow.

Beyond just the printing capability the product also includes several tools that allow the user to create a complete color-managed system for black & white printing. This includes making full B&W ICC profiles for both printing and soft-proofing within Photoshop or any other editing package that allows soft-proofing.

It is available for both Apple Mac computers running Mac OS X and Windows PC computers running Windows 7, Vista, XP or 2000. The printers supported are all Epson inkjet printers and inksets are both standard manufacturer inksets and custom dedicated B&W inksets. Many combinations have already been profiled. Check for printer and ink combinations. Virtually any inkset can be profiled but that requires a densitometer or spectrophotometer.
