The 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:
Medium Hard Tone
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.
Worth Every Penny
I've been using the iPF 6400 now for about 2 years and I really could not be happier. The colors are so sharp and vivid, it is almost hard to believe! Each time I print a banner that is 24 in x 72 in, I'm amazed how quickly the ink dries when using a Scrim Vinyl. The menu screens were hard to get used to at first but once I became familiar with all the menu features I could easily navigate back and forth, that is why I gave the Features 4 out of 5 stars.
Overall, the printer is awesome and I sell more Scrim Vinyl products than anything else, but no matter what kind of media is used (photopaper, polypropylene, vinyl, etc.) the iPF 6400 is up for the job and is sure to impress!!!
