   I think there could also be interest in obtaining the best technical
quality printing full colour graphics. I used to be in contact with someone
doing DTP who moved files around between different operating systems to use
the best facilities available on each, and adjusted the gamma curves, dot
sizes and layout, etc, to match the individual printing machine, inks, paper
and materials, and other equipment, all to achieve the best possible result.
