Question Making a greyscale

Hi all,

I'd like to attach a greyscale with 21 levels to the bottom of my inkjet printed images to be able to see if I have any colour casts within the print. In short, what Dean Collins advocates doing (but I lost his notes!). If I remeber right, he used 21 levels from black without detail to white without detail, all with smooth transitions in between. Hope this makes sense?

Craig

Welcome to Retouch Pro Craig. I was all set to lend a helping hand but I see Greg pointed you in the right direction. Let us know if that helps when printing. I'm curious since I never tried that before.
