Category: Print Week
Hi all. We’re wrapping up our print week today with a video on sending your photos to some one else to print. It could be a photo lab, or just a friend with a printer. Either way, here’s some of the best methods and settings for saving your photos to print, if you’re not printing them yourself.
Now that we’ve finish edited our file, calibrated our monitor and soft-proofed the image, it’s time to make a print. I’ll showcase my workflow for creating a small test print (a hard-proof) before printing this image big. Tomorrow Matt is going to share a video about how to send your images off to have printed at a lab.
If you want to get really accurate prints, calibrating your monitor is critical. Without a well calibrated monitor, it’s tough to know if you are viewing accurate tones and colors as you edit and softproof your images. In the video below I’ll show you how I use my i1 Display Pro colorimeter to calibrate my display.
Welcome to Day 2 of print week. A few of the questions we get a lot when it comes to printing is how much do you sharpen your photos? How about Noise Reduction? And finally, how do you soft proof? Well, today we’ve put ’em all in to one topic, and believe it or not, it’s actually much easier than it all sounds. Enjoy!
We are so excited to kick off print week! Each day we’ll be covering a variety of topics to help you get your image from the digital darkroom to the wall. Soft-proofing, monitor calibration, printing yourself, sending prints out? We are covering it. Here’s a short print week introduction video that will let you know what to expect in the days ahead.
