At Ken Allen Studios we are continuing to experiment with coating inkjet prints to protect them from surface abrasions.

Wax Coating Inkjet Prints

In particular are the fine art semi-gloss papers that can seemingly scratch if you look at them the wrong way. Current protection methods include lamination and spray varnishes but these have drawbacks of there own and do not work well with all paper surfaces. Typically smooth gloss papers work best for lamination and matte papers work best with the spray varnishes, hence trying to find a solution for the fine art semi-gloss papers. Of course the best protection is done by framing the print behind glass or acrylic but sometimes this is not desired and there can also be a lot of handling between the print coming off the printer and having it safely installed behind glass. We have been experimenting using renaissance wax to coat inkjet prints and have been quite pleased with the results.

Automatic Image Enhancement Desktop Application. COLORCRITICAL. Colour Printing. 1. Check Environmental Conditions You cannot get accurate colour if environmental conditions are out of spec! Digital presses are designed for optimum operation when relative humidity is within the 30%-60% range and it is room temperature. You cannot achieve accurate colour when humidity drops below 25%. Buy a hygrometer (humidity meter) and thermometer and measure before going to the next steps. Schewe Photo -sRGB VS ProPhoto RGB.

A lot has been written about using sRGB (or Adobe RGB) VS using ProPhoto RGB. Often, it is assumed that the purpose of PP RGB is to use a wider gamut of color-meaning more saturated color-but it can also be argued that it's useful for making sure that whatever the actual saturation an image may have remains unclipped. For it is a fact that many colors that a camera can capture (and even some colors that today's printers can print) fall outside the gamut of Adobe RGB, let alone sRGB. So, as a little test, I offer the following; an image whose gamut of colors is not great yet has colors that are clipped when converting from the raw file to sRGB. I've provided a link to the original raw file (shot with a 1D MII Canon and whose DNG was output from Lightroom 1.0 as a DNG).

The image above was processed from Lightroom with minimal settings adjusted (see the DNG settings) into a 16 bit sRGB tiff file before being saved from Photoshop CS3 using Save For Web at High Quality JPG.
