    Best way to do transparency on drop caps?
    AJP
    I have some large drop caps and wish to make them 30% transparency. However, ID doesn't seem to offer the option to make a single letter (within a block of text) a separate transparency. Short of coloring...

  • .PSB Printing on an Epson 9600

    How do I print a . psb on an epson 9600?
    If I need a RIP what's the best one?

    Also who knows how to print full bleed on a 9600? Or a 2200?

    Thanks in advance,

    MathYou!

      .psb is a "Photoshop Bloated" file.
      That's what we call em anyway.
      No one should be printing files that big.
      Specially on a 9600.

      Rick, I'm not even gonna tell you in this forum how to create one cuz I don't want to see anymore of them.

                i have a 9600 & haven't ever used .psb but it's just a large .psd so you should just be able to print from photoshop unless you want to go through a rip but it doesn't sound like it

                full bleed is easiest to accomplish by tricking the machine by saying the paper is about.06 smaller than it really is.

                  Oh, just a LARGE photoshop document, he says.
                  You try opening, let alone ripping, a 4G image someday.
                  A .psb allows for over 300G files (though I doubt the comps have the power yet to actually do work on one of these).
                  This is absolutely NOT necessary.
                  They can only be opened by PSCS and above and most other programs don't support anything over 2G anyway (ie don't try to place one of these into Quark or InD or, especially, Illustrator).
                  WASTE OF TIME.
                  I'll leave them for the high (end) art crowd.

                  The only really good thing about them is, if you keep your head about it, you can go out to 300,000 pixels in any one dimension. Not that you should.

                    ^^WHY
                    So you can say you created a file with more pixels than the next guy?
                    I have 2000 fonts...well I have 2001?

                    And like yu, who createdd this PSB can show someone and say, "See the difference?"

                    I don't get it.

                      The only applications I have seen where it makes ANY sense are in a long wall length mural or a building wrap. It can be created in one piece then cut up for output.

                      BUT you have to be very careful if you have any scanned images in it (right res for size) and the entire background cannot be a photograph of any kind for an up close-and-personal wall mural, scanned or otherwise. It can be digitally created artwork but not a photo. The grain of the film becomes visible if you can even scan it large enough (digital camera? Don't even go there.) For a building wrap, have you ever seen the size of the 'pixels' in one of those photo images? They can be over 2" square but you only see them from a great distance.

                      You also have to work within the limits of the output device. Sure, it can be a long mural but it also should be, usually, 150dpi or UNDER depending on the device printing it.

                        But we have taken this guy's thread way off topic.

                        The image should print to the Epson thru PhotoshopCS without a rip. It may take a VERY long time to spool depending on the reason for the .psb format. If you are tiling this thing into a mural of some sort, you don't want to be printing edge to edge. You want some overlap in your tiles to do a "wallpaper trim" at the seams so the sections will butt up against each other and align perfectly.
