With the plethora of fine art inkjet papers available today, I figured I'd select a subset and run some tests. Today and next week we take a look at the results and my testing methods. You can download my test chart for your own testing here (it's a big file though, so please only download it if you intend to use it.): http://www.martinbaileyphotography.com/downloads/Martin_Bailey_Inkjet_Print_Test_Image_ProPhotoRGB.tif By all means, remove the text and copyrights etc for your own tests, but if you decide to redistribute the graphic, please use the one that contains my site address and the copyright notice. Thanks! You can also download the loose files in JPEG form here: http://www.martinbaileyphotography.com/downloads/Fine_Art_Inkjet_Print_Test_JPGs.zip You can make your own Granger Chart and Gamut Chart very easily in Photoshop. I found the instructions for this on the Luminous Landscape here: http://www.luminous-landscape.com/essays/test-charts.shtml There will also be a PDF document that I'll release a day or two after this, as episode 192.1. That gives a full explanation of the tests and results with the images. The music in this episode is from the PodShow Podsafe Music Network at http://music.podshow.com/
