Native support for CMYK 16bit

Post by Chapa75 » Thu Dec 16, 2010 7:27 pm

1. As I understand your program is a compilation of Gutenprint kernel environment windows. Gutenprint works perfectly fine with CMYK 16bit images.
2. Your program really supports CMYK 16bit?
3. Is it possible to print in RAW mode as gutenprint? For example I want to print out Multichannel (CMYKRB) file from Photoshop?

thank you for your feedback!

PrintFab is not based on Gutenprint.

The current version of PrintFab requires "Ghostscript" (or a compatible postscript interpreter) to be installed - Ghostscript is also open source software (like Gutenprint) and is capable of 16bit color precision (RGB 16bit or CMYK 16bit).

The current beta version is limited to 8bit, but for the release version full 16bit support is planned.

About RAW mode (controlling all printer ink channels directly from Photoshop): this is not yet supported.
