Is this article title the best one?[edit]

Seems to me that a better title would be something like "Multicolor Ink Schemes", with a redirect from Hexachrome. Nevertheless, I learned some interesting things! Regards, Nikevich (talk) 18:38, 29 November 2009 (UTC)

Adobe plug-in support[edit]

The the discontinuation of Hexachrome based on Adobe not supporting a Rosetta based plug-in seems misleading. The article indicates that the plugin required Rosetta - a technology developed by Apple as part of Mac OS X to transition from PowerPC to Intel based processors. Specifically Rosetta ran code compiled for PowerPC on Intel. As of Mac OS X 10.6 Rosetta was no longer included by default. The lack of support for Rosetta based plug-ins was necessarily for Adobe to transition to Apple's newer technologies. The lack of support for Pantone's plug-in could be attributed to Apple & Adobe transitioning to new technology too quickly or to Pantone neglecting to update the plug-in to meet current technology; however, the statement that the Hexachrome system was discontinued because Adobe refused to support it may cause readers to think that Adobe may have had prejudice against the system.

Other printing systems using colors in addition to CYMK[edit]

The statement regarding light cyan & magenta inkjet inks being incorporated for the same purpose as hexachrome is entirely false. As such I will change it to be a contrast between the two systems.

Hexachrome: Expands the CMYK gamut to include more deeply saturated and vibrant oranges and greens which are either difficult or impossible to produce with CMYK.

CMYKcm (& CMYKcmyk): SMOOTHS the CMYK gamut providing more subtle transitions between colors. NO extension of the gamut is provided.

I believe that some inkjet printer makers have also added colors to increase gamut in printers targeted at photo printing - though the simple addition of light cyan & magenta is much more common. Robartsd (talk) 19:40, 6 May 2011 (UTC)

Non-public sources[edit]

Most of the sources are non-public, so they are entirely useless to the reader. We should consider to replace them with open and reliable sources, or otherwise delete them, unless there is a very good reason to keep them.--SiriusB (talk) 12:49, 30 April 2012 (UTC)
