That's exactly the issue that was brought up by a couple of professional
photographers that I spoke to. I was told that the only proper way to do it
was to set up your own photo lab at home. Basically you are paying them to
do final color correction when you pass it off to a lab, so it is really up
to the person who is working on it to get it right when it is printed.
I'm specifically looking at this printer, which I have yet to find any
cups/linux information on.
It prints 11"x14" (279.4mm x 355.6mm) on 13"x19" paper with 8 colors. The
reviews are really good, and I can't find anything similar for under $14,000
Anyways, I just thought I'd ask..
