Editorial Reviews

Library Journal

While advances in digital photography have been well reported, less visible are the advances in photographic printing technology. The new inkjet printers are capable of great precision at a very fine resolution, prints comparable to high-quality darkroom prints on photographic paper. The authors provide a foundation for fine art printing, including the understanding of color management, profiling, paper, and inks. They demonstrate how to set up printing workflow and convert image files to fine prints. Both Steinmueller and Gulbins are successful German photographers. In a fast-changing medium, this is a highly recommended volume for libraries serving serious photographers.

    A reviewer

    Rocky Nook consistently offers books that provide thoughtful insights and techniques by articulate experts who are objective in their recommendations. I have been a photographer for 40 years, a professional photographer for 30 years and a digital photographer for 10 Fine Art Printing has been a practical guide to improving my digital printing. I own several Rocky Nook titles and find them all to be books that are useful to professionals.
