    It would help if you could post a printed test strip, it's hard to offer advice just seeing the photoshop curve. But it sounds like you're going to have to straighten out the curve a bit. You could also try Chartthrob to get you closer.

    Sorry, I should have done that.

    Bob, I believe you are well enough versed in digital negs to understand what Richards product is doing. It really is simple compared to the rest I've tried. I've not done gum with his product but have done pt/pd, VD and carbon. One test patch, one measurement and it generates a curve. Pretty idiot proof but the instruction documentation is lacking. He just came out with an upgrade that I've not tried yet so maybe he's added clearer instructions. I believe he has a free trial if I'm not mistaken.

    I think straightening out that curve a bit will help. Maybe try something closer to this red line for a start:

    Thank You. After some tweaking here and there, I feel as though I am starting to get somewhere now.

    Looks like you nailed it by the looks of the step wedge!
