Clay coatings are not necessarily kaolin? But perhaps I am usng the wrong term, pardon me. Miles Hecker's palatine review ( says Canson uses 'fine white silica'.

Whatever it is, the paper when cut leaves a great deal of paper dust, like shards.

It is white carbon black

Maybe a stupid idea.. but is there any chance that your image has a 1/4" white border that you can't see (because it's white)?    Have you tried printing any other image?

Not a stupid idea and I thought that may be the problem... but it wasn't that.

I tried a bunch of different 'canned' paper sizes today and it finally worked on the 13x19 (Centered) setting.  It supposedly put a .56 margin at the top and bottom, .12 on the sides... and since my image was 10.25 x 15.25 - well within the borders. It printed perfectly.  At least I got my job done!  Why this didn't work like it has for the last two years I still have no idea.

I would still like to know why this is happening, but Epson couldn't figure it out either so I probably never will.  I usually print on roll paper anyway, but for certain smaller jobs, sheets just make more sense.

Two more fine flower images!

I prefer the first but would like to have the tip of the leaf removed.  I also like the warmer lighting.

Maybe the background of the second shot is a bit too in focus?

Nice shots!

That's why it would be so nice IF the selection of camera profiles where at the top, rather than the bottom of the GUI in Lightroom. I agree, set profile first, then mess with sliders.

+2  I never really thought about it, but you're exactly right about this.  As soon as I read your post, I thought, DUH! ... of course!!

Eric, Adobe, are you listening?

It took a bit of searching to find it again, but here it is. Worked like a charm. No issues since with drag and drop or network drives.

Here it is.

I used 2 options:
- first is to take the head off (optional, a couple of times I went without but if you can it's probably safer) and strap it to my carry on rucksack (which happened to be my camera bag also)
- second and the one I'm using these days is to pack it in on of my bigger bags, somehow shielded but nut by much; my current big bags are the hard shell type.

So far no real problems either way. Most of the travel was within US.

Aaron, you might be interested in this:

Perhaps bleaching the prints in sunlight might work.

This is great to know,  will try this today!

...I was simply suggesting that if the data is linear, gamma encoding must be applied to it somewhere before it reaches the display, otherwise it will look dark...


I believe the curve you're really referring to here pertaining to why a Raw image doesn't look initially dark due to its linear encoded data is not technically a gamma curve at all but this red curve shown here...

...viewed in Adobe's DNG Profile Editor of the Base Tone curve embedded in all Default camera profile driven previews in ACR/LR. You'll note every Raw file viewed in ACR/LR has to have some camera profile which can't be turned off meaning the red base tone curve.

I recently photographed a really nice project that had lacquered painted hallway doors.  This was shop grade paint and the doors should have be brought off sight to be painted, but my client's client did not want to pay for the expense.  Being such, my client had the paint applied as best he could with the doors on location; the end result was good however the paint dried with a slight texture to it.  

My client was wondering if there was a way for me to remove this texture in post.  I have no idea and do not think I can.  Anyone have any advice?  (I attached the edge of the image that would need to be fixed.)  

P.S.: this was something that I did not see as an issue while on location.  It only came up after the image proof was delivered.  This is a very good client of mine and I can not do this, it is not the end of the world.
