Canadian Camera Magazine reviews PrinTao 8 software for large format printers – There was overall agreement that PrinTao 8 produced a preferred print result to using Photoshop as the print driver.
Canadian Camera Magazine: « When comparing the color prints from the 3880, using Photoshop as the print manager rather than PrinTao8, the preferred print was the PrinTao 8 result. The prints seemed to be slightly lighter in overall tone. The colors are very realistic, and closely match the calibrated monitor screen, the first time. Rick attributes this to the ICC profiles that are built into the PrinTao 8 software. […] The CAPA members who viewed the (blind test) prints pretty much agreed with the comments above. There was overall agreement that PrinTao 8 produced a preferred print result to using Photoshop as the print driver. »
