    Can’t wait for this. It is something that most of us have difficulty with at the printing end of the process. Thanks

    Excellent idea! I hope it covers resizing/enlarging the original in order produce 17×22 or larger prints.

    Hudson, this is what I’ve been waiting for. I am so happy you’re providing us with this knowledge–the knowing and understanding of how to get a really good print. Printing has such a wide scope of things to be aware of. Thank you so much. I’m looking forward to your course.

      So glad you’re excited Carmen. It’s been a lot of fun to produce.

    I have been learning about printing for many years. It all started with my being assigned to be the official U. S.Navy photographer in Germany 52-54. I had to make my own prints with enlargers. Occasionally, I even had to develop negatives while traveling aboard U.S. River boats on the Rhine river.

    I now own an Epson R3000 that is used for large prints. I look forward to learning new things from you.

      Wow, what an exciting start! I did four years at sea between high school and college in the Gulf War and my travels and adventures then deepened my passion for photography too.

    Looking forward to this. Hope you cover Profiles and canned vs. custom profiling.

    1. On February 10, 2019 at 8:37 pm Hudson Henry replied:

      I don’t go too far down that road as I’ve had great luck with Epson’s and their canned profiles. I do sometimes do custom profiling with my HP Z3200, but I think that printer has more drift and variability and needs the built in profiling capability it has.

    Sooooo looking forward to this, Hudson! Glad to see this topic being addressed. So many of us print and we’ve been asking for more tools in ON1 as part of our wish list. Thank you!!

    I love printing on my Epson 3880. There is something special about watching my efforts come to life and holding the finished product in my hands. Weather it is a portrait on heavyweight fine art paper or a seascape on ultra glossy, this final step in the photographic process creates an amazing sense of accomplishment. The only thing that puts a slight damper on the process is when the printed colors don’t exactly match the colors on the screen. I keep my monitor calibrated and use the proper paper profiles. Despite this, the color is often slightly off. I understand that printed brightness can never match the brightness of a backlit 5k screen. I always try to adjust for this by adding some exposure in Lr (develop module) and adding some brightness and contrast (print module). And I keep my screen brightness down. What I am talking about is the difference in hues and shades. I hope this will be covered in the course.

    1. On February 10, 2019 at 8:39 pm Hudson Henry replied:

      Are you using soft proofing with the correct profiles for the printer and paper you are using? You shouldn’t need to do blind adjustments like that. Yes, I do cover that and I’m willing to help with follow up.

    looking forward to it! Your way of educating is always very thorough.
    I hope that, when you talk about print sizes, you will speak of inches AND centimeters.
    Not for all of us English is our native language.

      Shoot. You caught me too late with that comment. You’ll have to do a bit of converting when watching. I do love the metric system and I wish we’d adopt it here too. It makes so much more sense. alas.

    Hi Hudson

    Very glad to see that you are revisiting this topic. Especially, as Photo Raw is now capable of soft proofing, and things have moved on since 2016.

    By the way, what has happend to the old Print Week Videos, from 2016 ? I looked at…tproofing/ today, and they no longer play. Or, have they been withdrawn slightly too soon, in anticipation of their replacement?

    And, I will echo Peter van den Broek’s plea for the use of both Metric and Imperial measurements. But, it is not about language. Imperial measurements have not been used in the British Educational system, since the 1970’s. ON1 need to include Imperial for the American Market, and Metric for the most of The World.

    Best wishes, David Price

      Hey David,

      I’ll look into the Print Week vids. I wasn’t aware they were gone. I’ll try and think about that in future. I do wish we were metric too, but sadly we’re behind there.

    THKSM Hudson for this printing course !!!
    I would like to ask you to talk in it about: Watermarks !!!
    In selling framed photographs, is it a good idea to “sign” them ???
    Is it better to sign pictures over the printed area ???
    Maybe, put a watermark in a wider bottom margin ???
    Watermark or to make an original signing by hand ???
    Or, is better not to sign at all ???
    Best regards,

    1. On February 10, 2019 at 8:49 pm Hudson Henry replied:


      I sign with a paint pen like this by hand on the print itself. I’d really advise against a digital watermark. It lacks that personal touch.

    Since I love to make prints I echo the other comments. Really looking forward to this course. Now if only ON1 would add the ability to create custom print templates like LR does. Been requesting that for a couple of years.

      I’m excited for that too. I believe we’ll see it before too much more time passes.

    Fantastic. I can’t wait. I hope you spend some time with a discussion on the various types of paper now available.

      I do a bit, but I’m always up for further discussion of print papers.

    Hi Hudson! I just think that most people are going to be a little disappointed if they are expecting one cure for everything printing, “a magic wand”, with this course.
    As you say in this video, “printing is an art in itself”.
    So, I am waiting to see what you can teach us because I know you are one of the best there is in this photographic matter.
    All the best to you and all the members.

    1. On February 10, 2019 at 8:34 pm Hudson Henry replied:

      There is no magic wand, and you can’t succeed printing without some trail and error, but I hope I can at least illuminate the path some. :-) Thanks so much for the kind words Domingos.

    I live in Oman. we don’t have access to good quality printing locally. I wasted so much money and time trying to do my own printing. I look forward to the printing course. Thank you Hudson.

      Please don’t hesitate to reach out any time with follow up questions Abdullah. I sure hope we can get you making prints that make you happy on a regular basis.

    Will you cover some of the issues in dealing with commercial photo printing services (Aspen Creek Photo, Canvas on Demand, etc.)? Looking forward to your course.

    1. On February 10, 2019 at 8:30 pm Hudson Henry replied:

      I do go into some recommendations for prepping a file to have printed for you, but I”m always ready to take follow up questions if you have more. I haven’t used those services. I tend to either print myself or have Bay Photo do my work.

    Hi Hudson
    I have a monitor calibrated every two weeks using the i1studio from X-Rite, and all my papers are also calibrated with it, using i1studio V.1.1.1 software.
    My printer is a 5 years old epson 3880, that works perfectly, using preventive maintenance every two weeks : Cleaning Capping station; nozzle check; etc.

    My problem is using “soft Proofing” in LR 6.14 . Everytime I choose my “.icc” profile for the paper that I plan to use, I get a displayed image that lack contrast showing a what look like an ‘haze” that don’t show up when I am printing with that paper. Is this normal for that old version of LR or not. Please comment. ?

    1. On February 10, 2019 at 8:29 pm Hudson Henry replied:

      Hmmmm, you’re calibrating with a 2.2 gamma and 80cd/m2 luminosity?

      It’s normal for your proof to look flatter and less contrasty than your edited file when you activate the proof. I generally create a proof virtual copy and tweak it to get the contrast and color back to where I want before printing. The proof should look very close to what the printer outputs if your monitor is well calibrated and you are using the correct profile. I have had no problem like that with LR or ON1 from the earliest versions where they offered soft proofing.

    I am looking forward to this for inspiration. I was taught “shoot for the wall” but lately I haven’t been shooting as much as experimenting with new ways to reprocess old files.
    Before printing I often make a small test print, not only for color but to check crop and how the paper chosen suits the print. Using this meathod you can test several versions of a photograph, save ink and paper and have a small print for your records.

    For the metric world or anyone who has to do any type of conversion I recommend I use the site regularly for lenght and weight conversions. I find it easy and accurate. Some measurements such as length are available in both decimal and fractions which is great when substitutions have to be made.

      I do the same kind of test prints and go over it in the course. :-) Super conversion site. Thanks for sharing that!

    Hey Hudson, looking forward to your workflow. In particular if you have any recomendations /tips on canon printer that would be super helpful. I have given up on trying to figure out using the cannon print studio pro and the canon pixma pro-100.
