This version was tested end to end. A digitized black and white 4x5 image was input. The file was in TIFF format. This file is approximately 54 Mb in size. It had a 16 bit depth. The image was converted to RGB color and then a set of color curves was input. These curves were generated by myself while operating in Windows with this program. The curves are used in this case to manipulate the RGB channels in such a way that the black and white tones can be rendered in an optimum way when printed on an Epson 5 color (plus black) printer (Epson Stylus Photo 2000P in my case). The color cartridge in the printer is filled with black ink in 3 different strengths. This technique was perfected and described by Paul Roark. The manipulated image was then rendered successfully on the printer. The image looked as good as when it was printed in the Windows environment. It was necessary to add the mscms.dll from Windows to make the program's color management system work. It was also necessary to transfer the Windows color management files from system32.spool.color the wine folder system32. The reason for this discrepancy is not obvious.
What does not
The only things that I noticed that have not worked have to do with the help system. The tutorial is 'not found' and the help file itself is rendered in a font that is so small that it cannot be read.
What was not tested
Does not uninstall well at all.
