Piezography™BW (Black & White Printing)
Learn how to prepare and output amazing black-and-white prints in this section of The Studio, where attendees are introduced to Piezography BW, a new software-and-ink combination that allows artists and photographers to create high-resolution, large-dynamic-range, black-and-white inkjet prints. Participants are introduced to concepts like input, resolution requirements, and output options.

Piezography BW Printing Procedures:

1. Sign up for a Piezography BW printing session (sign-ups are offered one day in advance and on a first-come, first-served basis).

2. Pick up a work slip when you check in and bring a file on CD. (Or scan a print, transparency, or negative when you arrive. Scanner access will be very limited, so access is first-come, first-served.)

3. Open your file in Photoshop, then convert it into a grayscale mode.

4. Work with the file and adjust for desired output. Volunteers are available to provide information about the capabilities of the system.

5. Files should be the desired output dimension at 240 pixels per inch or higher. Volunteers can help with available printers and sizes.

6. Select File, pull down to Export, Piezography BW. Volunteers can assist with settings in this window, to select proper papers, ICQ profiles, etc.

7. Fill out your work slip, ask a volunteer to check your file and sign your work slip, then begin your print.
