Dan also has a newer inkjet negative companion co on his website, which
takes the book info forward to the current Epsom printers. It has curves and
colourizing actions for silver & platinum for several printers. A great help

Dear Tim,

Could you keep us informed on your future tests ?
I'm pretty interested by the subject too. Unfortunately, without having
enough energy/time/money to spend on it.

Aside Dan Burkholder's book, there is also Mark Nelson's e-book
(http://www.precisiondigitalnegatives.com), basically a procedure to
calculate Photoshop curves to linearize the curve on the output paper
(whatever it is).
He also set up a mailing-list (http://groups.yahoo.com/group/PDNPrint/) but
the major activity is on alternative processes where the flaws of inkjet
negatives show less.

Thanks and best regards,
