How do you normally choke your image? I use inner stroke => 2px on PS layer style but it doesn't seem right.
That aside, do you know if the white toner for OKI C711WT prints solid white or translucent? I bought a compatible toner from a local supplier thinking it will print solid white but turned out to be translucent. Called him and he said it's supposed to be translucent. From all the online videos I've seen, they seem to be printing solid white. Too bad I don't know anyone who has that printer so I can't verify myself. I have a feeling I got scammed. I'm supposed to print some cards for a customer and he wants white text.
If the image is not floating objects and in one piece you can get away by reducing the size few pixels. The pixel amount will depend on the resolution of the image. Or reduce a fraction of an inch if the unit is in inch. If the image is floating objects all the objects will be displaced relative to the original.
My way of choking. Duplicate the image and use it for creating the mask. After creating the mask do the following:
1) Remove all white background with Magic Eraser.
2) Click the Magic Wand tool.
3) In the property menu uncheck Contiguous checkbox.
4) Click any part of the transparent background with Magic Wand.
5) Click Select
6) Click Expand
7) Type the value of the pixel desired to choke the image.
8) Press Delete Key.
To verify if the mask was choked enough or too much zoom around the edges of all the floating objects to make sure everything lined up with the original.
BTW you do this faster with click of action button next time when you create Actions in PS CS2 or higher or PS CC. PS Element does not have built in Action feature.
I have been waiting for @sandhopper2
to report back about the white toner powder he bought from AU Ebay. Hopefully he will let us know his findings. Send him a PM. Maybe between you and @LucidDavid
can get some answer. I will PM him also.
What brand and model is your printer?
