Normtiff -d option

Hi group,

The manpage of normtiff says:

-d Lddyn Specifies the dynamic range for the target output device, which is the ratio of the maximum and minimum usable display luminances. The default value is 32, which is typical for CRT monitors.

Is this option also useful for preparing an image for print?
And if so, what is a reasonable/typical value for printers?

Regards,
Iebele

Hi Iebele,

The -d option is useful for printing, with a value of 50 or so. (Some printers can produce reflectances below 2%, but they are not well controlled in black.)

Hope this helps.
