  1. Hi folks,
    I`shure about the forums topic.
    Target: Restauration/reprint of old family bw photo.
    Plan: Scanning, retouche and restauration in photoshop.
    printing out negative on transparency film with ink jet.
    contact print from ink jet negative. (will ensure lasting result,
    even selenium toning possible).
    problem: most films I used tend to have problems with large dark
    areas (they simply become to wet).
    Any ideas or experience?
  2. Epson makes a backlit transparency film especially for their inkjet printers, it's
    pricey, but i've had good results with it - not for what your doing, but for , well,
    backlit transparencies:). After printing, you will need to allow the prints to dry
    much like a silver print, in a dust-free environment for an hour or two, before
    handling too much. otherwise, yeah, the ink slides around and smears.

  4. Pictorico premium OHP transparency film seems to be the best according to Dan Burkholder.
