ImagePrint 9.0 Spotlight – Improved Narrow Gamut Toning

In addition to the introduction of Wide Gamut toning, ImagePrint 9.0 also greatly enhances its already existing black and white “Narrow Gamut” toning abilities. (This type of toning refers to adding relatively subtle casts to achieve effects such as selenium or sepia toned prints). Here’s a brief overview of the changes.

ImagePrint’s narrow gamut toning was the first introduced to inkjet printers and is still the industry standard due to its ability to “split tones” based on the highlight/shadow areas of the image and then reproduce those tones with advanced inking methods that eliminate undesired casts due to changes in print viewing conditions.

ImagePrint 9.0 ups the ante yet again by adding the ability to specify the tone in not only the highlights and shadows but mid-tones as well.  That’s right–you’ll be able to individually adjust the narrow gamut tone in up to 4 distinct density ranges. Master-class black & white techniques previously only possible in the darkroom can now be reproduced right on your inkjet printer.

While we were at it we’ve also added contrast/boost controls right in the Narrow Gamut window allowing you to dynamically alter the density curve of the image as you adjust its tone.

Combined with ImagePrint’s amazing greyscale profiles, our narrow gamut image toning has long been the secret to success for hundreds of fine-art black and white photographers.  With the improved Narrow Gamut Toning capabilities of version 9 we think you’ll find that the tradition continues.

    Mike :
    I second the question. Will it ever be available for the Mac? This blog has gone disturbingly quiet…… What will be the cost of an upgrade from version 8.0?

    Just to say I LOVE IP8, but I’m getting tired of having to boot from an external drive with Snow Leopard just to print!

      The Mac version is ready for those who need to upgrade now. The official release wont be until the Windows version is also ready which should be some time next week. The blog has been quiet as we are all working to get v9 released and in multiple languages for the first time.
