I contacted ON1 about a month ago with this problem and since have continued to burn through 17x22 paper without finding a solution. The response I received from you was that "we've never seen anything like that." I've corresponded with Hudson Henry about this and he’s stumped too. Basically, I can't get completed 17x22 prints from my P5000 directly from a stamped version using ON1 2020’s print function. I am able to get completed prints (e.g., sheets at 300ppi) at 8.5x11 and 13x17, but 17x22 prints experience a total breakdown, straight-line color streaking toward the end of the print when printed from On1 (see example #1) or a sharp color change mid-way if printed from PhoTao 8 (see example #2)…note that the change is abrupt in both cases.
When I export the stamped ON1 version as a TIF and try to print it in PhoTao 8 I get example #2. If I open the TIF in PS 2020 it’s odd that I can flatten the layers despite the fact that it originated as a stamped version from On1 2020. To me that doesn’t make sense as I thought a stamped layer combined all layers? There’s always merge layers but that didn’t work either…and you lose future editing abilities. Anyway, I can print that PS flattened TIF in PhoTao 8 at 17x22 AOK.
I’m nagged by this problem but experimenting with paper and ink is getting expensive and very wasteful. I do have a work-around, but it sure would be cool to print 17x22’s directly from ON1 2020.
Any ideas? Thanks! Jim (Blackhole Photography Studio)
