The prints looked close to neutral with just a hint of coolness but the toning ringaround tests showed that any of the tint bias setting would look good; it’s very much a matter of personal taste. We still prefer the slightly magenta bias which mimics that obtained from intense selenium toning of a silver halide print – between 20 and 30 points on the ABW vertical scale should do the trick.
We could not resist doing our normal colour testing, especially as this media provides the glossiest alternative around for print work on barytas. We profiled using a 727-patch target in i1Profiler using Premium SemiGloss Photo Paper as the media setting. The data are tabled and show high colour performance. The slightly cool white point has depressed the colour range slightly towards blue but only by a small amount and accurate skin tones were recorded. In keeping with the high gamut volume, the HiGAM colour patch set was well reproduced with a loss of only 2/10ths of a point on saturation statistic.
