I have some problems printing rich black, and I´ve spent days trying to find a solution on the internet, but there is just too much information... I´d happily spend weeks and months learning all about printing, but I "unfortunately" have to print an artwork asap, so all help will be greatly appreciated!
I use an adjustment layer > black & white to convert my color photos to black and white (this is an ok option? Will this give a rich black?) But should I make any adjustments to the file -before- I do this? Should I convert it to cmyk? Change anything in Edit > Color settings?
And then. When printing,.. what choices do I make in the printer dialogue? (Like, do I tell photoshop to manage colors? What boxes to tick). This is my biggest problem I guess. How to make photoshop and the printer speak the same language.
I have an Epson stylus R3000 are printing on matte 180gms paper (have to be) and are using Photoshop CS3 (well I spend all my money on the printer, so...)
