Posted on Thu Jun 19, 2003 4:14 PM

My photography studio does high-volume package printing for dancing schools. We produce our prints on site using PC Pro printing software and three Kodak 8660 dye-sub printers. We recently switched from Kodak DCS330 cameras to Nikon D100s. We enjoyed the speed and control offered by Kodak PhotoDesk, especially the ability to rotate, filter noise, adjust exposure and save in almost real time on hundreds of images at a time. While Nikon Capture has some nice features, rotating and saving are glacial by comparision. We aren't even considering working in RAW, it's just too slow.

A note on PC Pro: the software is robust, stable and flexible. With the layout module we can make custom templates incorporating elaborate graphic designs that allow us to place the customer's image in the graphic. The layout module also allows us to imbed the frame number on the print, an essential feature that enables us to collate orders.

However, we are willing to consider other options, including changing platforms to MacOS X, and using ink jet printers (if there is a water resistant ink set offering 25 year longevity) and if we can find a software solution that will give us the kind of speed we require.

Your suggestions welcomed.
