Re: Canon Pixma Pro 10s, setting default page

hello, and thanks for your reply. I prepare my RAW files in Darktable. It would be nice to be able to print directly from there, but I do not know how DT manages resizing from the original image to the pixels that will effectively compose the printout, given the paper size and margins, and consequen...

Epson paper ICC profile for Canon Pixma Pro 10s

hello All, my old Epson printer died suddenly, and I still have a lot of Epson premium glossy paper. The new printer is a Canon Pixma Pro 10s, though. Is there a way to use that paper's ICC profile on Ubuntu 16.04? I thought I'd find a way to load it in TurboPrint, but could not sort it out. thanks ...

Canon Pixma Pro 10s, setting default page

hello All, my new Canon Pixma Pro 10s has just arrived, and I updated my Studio license to the latest and greatest. I run Ubuntu 16.04, and saved in the printer properties the paper format 4x6, however, when I print it comes up an A4 page. No matter how many times I corrected the value, it doesn't s...

Re: new Ubuntu 16.04 install keeps asking for license

Zedonet,
thanks for your kind reply.
I resorted to purchase an updated key, and now it does not bog me anymore...
I know it's silly, but couldn't wait to test the new printer.
Now I have other issues, but I'll start a new thread.

Dear Sirs,

I have reinstalled my system, and Turboprint Studio 1.36-1 keeps asking for the license key which I have already entered.

am I missing something?

Re: Sharpening

so when I tick the box "borderless print" in the Gimp-turboprint driver, Gimp will adjust the scaling to match? Will it scale it twice, or just do it once? I wonder if Gimp would be so clever to scale the unsharpened image, and then apply sharpening. Or, if ghostscript has sharpening settings itself.

Re: Sharpening

It's not clear to me how the job is shared between the printing app and the driver. If you use Gimp for printing, is scaling done by Gimp or Turboprint? If scaling is done by Gimp, then I would expect to have an option to sharpen in the print menu. Else it should be the driver to care for the last s...

Re: Epson R800 and UltraGlossy paper setup

The colors are better than before. However, my test image is a nightly landscape with clouds, shooted at full moon on the lake. The clouds are white on my calibrated monitor, but they still print magenta. If I print the image from Gimp with the standard driver, it won't print magenta. This was my fi...

Re: Sharpening

I must specify that I am looking for a dedicated photo printing system under Linux, so text issues are not relevant to me.

Re: Sharpening

Thanks for your kind reply.

The problem is, I don't know the *exact* pixel size the image will have when TP scales it for printing.

If TP did not scale it, I could sharpen the image myself.

This is why I always got astonishing results with Qimage (for Window$, doh!): it scales && sharpen at once.

Sharpening

hello, All, I would like to know if TP has a sharpening tool. I think that sharpening should be the last pixel destructive action before the final destination, the paper. Because TP resizes the image based on the paper size of the print, I do not want to sharpen my tiff before printing. thanks for r...

Re: Epson R800 and UltraGlossy paper setup

ok, I got the profile: thanks! I still think it's a little shifted towards magenta. Just to rule out setup errors, this is how I created the profile: cartridge: GlossOptimizer Auto quality: 5760dpi paper class: glossy ink limit: 250 color data: Zedonet profile proof-studio driver: Epson_StylusPhotoR...
