Now like I mentioned, you might be running a dual head printer and have a broken or blocked chamber.
With this method you are able to double up a color or even multiple colors for print correction.

Alright, it goes in today's video. We're gonna be looking at how to double your output or printer if one of the heads are damaged. But before that, let's have a quick intro first. So today's video can be found on softwaretraining.co.za. And we make short and easy to watch problem solving videos, and we also have daily updates. Now, if we head into the programme here. So for this tutorial, we're gonna be using Photoshop. I think I'm currently running the 2021 version, but this should work in most versions. So now, uh, like I mentioned in the intro, today's video is gonna be for doubling up colours and this Will you'll be doing this in case, Let's say, your printers, um, one head is damaged for a colour. So let's say like, in our case here, we don't have yellow. It's not printing, so our results will look something like this. Now it could be for the Cyan, magenta, and sometimes the K as well or the black. But I'm just gonna show you here today or should I say, um, in the next video, we're gonna be looking at some yellow if we actually have that removed from our image. But, um, just to kind of hit over what the main concept of this is. So, um, most print heads has two chambers for one colour. So, um, you're basically gonna be printing with two chambers? But then, um so if the one chamber gets damaged, and technically, you could double up the colour output in the actual image and then the print time as well. And then, um, only a half will be printed off the colour, but the final output should have the right amount of colour, or at least close enough. So, um, that's what we're gonna be covering. So in other words, you might, uh, print like this, or it might be half of, uh, the yellow. And what we'll do is we'll double up the yellow and then the final output. The yellow should be closer to the original because one of the heads are damage. But just the disclaimer. This is obviously only going to work with printers with, um, double heads or two chambers for each colour. So just make sure you first, uh, confirm that that is, uh, accurate with your printing model as well that you actually have two chambers per colour. But yeah, before we run into the actual steps.
