Known bug in Excel 2010 and Excel 2011. Early versions of Excel have a “resolution” problem when correcting for cubic splines. If you are using an early version of excel and a change of a number drops your linearization, simply add .01 to the number (eg: 70 goes to 70.01) and everything will be ok again. 

CHANGE LOG

v2.0.9 11/15/2018 – Fixed a bug introduced in 2.0.6 that caused a black channel corruption in the new curve.

v2.0.8 11/15/2018 – Fixed a bug introduced by 2.0.7 that made curves under 10 channels print all ink at 100%.

v2.0.7 11/13/2018 – Added a feature where comments and copyright tags that are under line 1 of the header text of the .quad starting curve are retained. This is important for PPEv2 to work with non-official Piezography curves like those created by QuadtoneProfiler, etc. Further refined small details of the interface. 

v2.0.5 11/09/2018 – Added a special 31x9 single-page averaging target for xrite devices to be read using colorport/i1profiler software and interpreted with v2.0.5 of the PPE excel tool. This target is particularly good for people doing their first PiezoDN calibrations of Gum and Cyanotype processes that may have lots of splotches in the highlight area and may also have very uneven tones across the sheet of paper. Added i1Profiler 256step i1io v1 and v2 target support.

v2.0.4 11/09/2018 – Re-worked the Input Curve Smoothing algorithm (used to re-constitute a curve that is choppy and banding in the gradients). The new math dramatically improves (and increases) the smoothing throughout the curve while maintaining density transitions from the original curve at the dMax and dMin. This is particularly important when smoothing PiezoDN curves to eliminate gradient banding introduced from non-smoothed measurements in a previous linearization of the curve. Fixed font sizing issues. Fixed a bug that was not selecting all of the “New Curve” data by default. (2.0.3 requires you to click the “C” column header to select all of the New Curve data while 2.0.4 allows for just Command-C as the data is already fully selected).

v2.0.3 10/31/2018 – More initial language translations. Updated EULA.

v2.0.2 10/30/2018 – Typo fixes and Initial Multi-Language support in the PPE Excel tool for English, French, Chinese, Spanish, Portuguese, Russian, Italian, Japanese, Hindi, Arabic, Bengali, Nowegian, Polish, Korean. Note: The initial translation was done with an automated machine intelligence so it’s not perfect at all. The Non-English language cells can be edited if you want to contribute to the multi-language support. French will soon be updated with full translation (by hand).

v2.0.1 10/29/2018 – 1pm EST ~ PPEv2 tool was set to 100% blending curve without a blending curve preset. Update to v2.0.1 to fix this. If you don’t want to download again, just go down to the blending settings and set the blending curve to 0%.

v2.0.0 10/29/2018 ~ Updated to v2, available for purchase at shop.inkjetmall.com. Excel is now required. 256 step linearization and ICC profiling are the two big improvements. All the changes are too numerous to name here but a new page with the new features can be viewed at https://piezography.com/about-piezography-professional/

v1.4 04/20/2017 ~ Updated the Piezography ICC Profile targets to be un-tagged RGB (instead of untragged gray) for better printing through Adobe Color Print Utility (ACPU). Added ColorPort i1Pro RGB ICC targets as well for strip reading with the i1Pro2 (i1Profiler reading requires single step by step of all 600+ patches which can take a very long time).

v1.3 03/01/2017 ~ Added new “Piezography Print Luminance Matching Tool” that enables Piezography to match older legacy B&W printing systems to maintain tonal consistency for already mastered (and flattened) print files going forward. Added Piezography Manual Deluxe Edition 2017.v1 with documentation (text and OS X screenshots) for all of the Piezography Professional Edition Tools.

 v1.2 01/23/2017 ~ Added new “Piezography ICC Tool” that enables true ICC profiling of Piezography with i1Profiler and compatible Xrite spectrophotometer and print-icc licensed version of i1Profiler application. This also enables  OS X printing from Photoshop and/or Lightroom (not just Print-Tool).

 v1.1 ~ Fixed Ink Position documentation in Manual. Debugged Installer.

 v1.0 ~ Finalized OS X Installer and Google applications. * not tested yet on OS X Sierra! DTP41 & DTP45 Spectrophotometer support *ColorPort & Manual update.

v0.9 ~ Updated The Piezography Manual 2016 Deluxe Edition

v0.8 ~ Updated The Piezography Manual 2016 Deluxe Edition

v0.7 ~ Updated The Piezography Manual 2016 Deluxe Edition

v0.6 ~ Updated The Piezography Manual 2016 Deluxe Edition with new lin workflow documentation.

v0.5 ~ Added/updated 21,31,51,80,129, and 256 step targets for i1Pro1, i1Pro2, ISISv1, ISISv2, DTP70, Spyder, ColorMunki, and more. Updated documentation.

v0.5 ~ Finished Google Drive 51 and 129 step Error Correction tool.

v0.4 ~ Added Piezography Manual 2016 Deluxe Edition

v0.3 ~ Added 129 step error correction tool.

v0.2 ~ Added 21 Step tool.

v0.1 Beta ~ Added Piezography Curve Adjustment tool.
