Kevin – thanks for the article on the photo tins; I did not know about their existence. I like Hahnemuhle papers and will check them out. I’ve used Dane Creek Folios for some limited edition presentation series and they have the advantage of holding letter size prints. I can see the utility of the Tins.

Hi Kevin, the Hahnemühle website does not have an ICC profile for Photo Rag® Baryta on the Epson ET-8550. The website does have it for other Epson printers, including for the P700 and P900. Which ICC profile should I use to print on this paper on the Epson ET-8550 using either EPL or Capture One on a Mac? Thank you

After reading your workflow, I have to assume that you have printed all these images before, and done a series of proofs to tweak the file so that the printed image is a suitable match for what you see on the screen. I guess you would do your proof prints on paper other than the cards, to preserve these for the finish prints for the project.

Kevin, thanks for the heads up on the photo tins. Printing and storing prints is my weakness. How about an article on photographing the grain silo? I always find these interesting subjects but difficult now to gain access.Re: Photo TinsReply #4 on: November 18, 2021 at 10:18 am
Alan, funny you should mention Dane Creek Folios. I have been using them for years and we are doing the photography and article on them over the next few days. Stay tuned for that one. Then in a few weeks, we will be going into portfolio box products.Re: Photo TinsReply #5 on: November 18, 2021 at 10:25 am
You ask for it and you will get it. Presently I have Silo City, Pyramiden and Maysville SC on the article already started list. Now if I could only find more hours.Re: Photo TinsReply #6 on: November 18, 2021 at 10:53 am

Hahnemuhle doesn’t have the 8550 profiles yet. I’ll check with then when we can expect them. However, I found success using the profile for the P700 as well epson Premium Lustre.
I set EPL for Epson Premium Lustre and let it automatically pick the profile. Or, if you want to you can choose to manage by ICC Profile and download the Hahnemuhle for a baryta paper for the P700 or 900 and use those. Mine turned out really good.
In a few weeks, I have a group of pros getting together to do a big printing series. We will cover extensively the Epson Print Layout and a segment on media installer. Many of your answers will get answered I’m sure after we finish these videos. This is the first time we have tried doing this kind of material since the Pandemic.Re: Photo TinsReply #7 on: November 18, 2021 at 10:59 am
I order an extra tin. That way if I make a bad print or get a smudge I have a spare. It also allows me to run one print to make sure the feed and color are proper. For the most part, after you have done a few of these you will have faith in your color and paper setups that you can just print. Of course, it goes without saying you should be working from a calibrated monitor. I know pretty well as I explained in my workflow that the images I am working with are the way I want them.
We can show you how this works at our in-person workshops to be announced soon.
Also always good to have a spare tin box around in case someone drops them or dents them.
