  • hello Lynn-Ann, I am curious as to why you are going through Streamline with the tonal photographic image. Usually that is to change the image to a vector graphic file, necessary to produce a resolution independent image and best for linear or strong black and white images. I have found it best to reduce the latitude of the pixal graphic Photoshop image using curves by maybe 10-20...

  • I wonder if anyone can give advice on a kluge auto feeder. I havn't used it in several months. When I last printed on it there was no trouble in the feeder suction but now it doesn┬╣t want to pick up. There seems to be plenty of suction on the delivery. Any ideas?

  • I agree that for single pages, french-fold cards etc. the C& P are faster esp for long runs, but the Vandercook allows for larger page imposition.

So the answer really lies in answering " what kind of printing are you going to do?" I do a lot of books...

  • Hello Judi, Were you using ortho film negatives? I have used same and had good success. The ultra-violet light needs to be from a generalized source rather than a point source ( like a metal halide light) and has a specific frequency range. Why not buy a plate and use a 21 step stouffer sensitivity guide to see if your system works in a reasonable time. Somewhere in the archives...
