All tests were done on the Epson 9900 using RIP and profiling software by Ergosoft.

Bad batch numbers for Hahnemuhle Photo Rag Baryta 315 gsm:

  • 601.098-A
  • 601.099-A
  • 601.100-A
  • 601.208-A
  • 601.211-A

Note: As I mentioned in the audio portion of this post the new batch of paper supplied to me by Hahnemuhle is perfect and the issue of the black specs has now been corrected from what I can see. I was informed that the issue was “fixed” back in May/ June but unfortunately the bad stock does still exist so check before you buy!

The Scarlet Disclaimer

AudioBlog LogoThis audio blog focuses on a proposed French law that would require all Photoshop manipulated images of a person to carry a warning label- give a listen. One quick note, in the audio I say that taking two aspirins and eating a banana on one foot will make you 6 inches taller… I meant to say will not.
