Overview

Today's digital cameras continue to produce increasingly higher definition image data files, making high resolution, large-format output possible. As printing technology moves forward at an equally fast pace, the new inkjet printers are capable of printing with great precision at a very fine resolution, providing an amazing tonal range and significantly superior image permanence at a more affordable price. In the hands of knowledgeable photographers, these printers are able to produce prints that are comparable to the highest quality darkroom prints on fine art paper.

The third edition of this best-selling book provides the necessary foundation for successful fine art printing: the understanding of color management, profiling, paper, and inks. It offers advice on selecting an appropriate printer for long-lasting fine art prints, demonstrates how to set up the printing workflow and select a suitable paper for your subject, and guides you step-by-step through the process of converting an image file to an outstanding fine art print.

This new edition covers the most recent lines of high-end inkjet printers, photo papers, and devices for monitor and printer profiling. It also addresses the printing dialogs and some new features of Photoshop CS6.

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.
