    One of the best books i have seen on the subject!

    i found this book both helpful AND easy to follow the book is well written, concise, and yet, packed with useful information, and i feel that it is a great choice for anyone [from the novice, to the more well informed] who wishes to learn more about this subject. this book covers subjects such as scanning and printing resolution needed for optimum print outs, information for choosing the best printer, papers and inks for your images, colour management, advanced printing techniques, and a 15 page index of resources for those interested in learning more about the subject, as well as obtaining supplies! this is a great book, which will help you make the transition from darkroom, to desktop

    Book Review ¿ Mastering Digital Printing by Harald Johnson

    Anyone who has ventured seriously into creating digital art sooner or later stumbles into the uncharted sea of printing. Once an artist has finally created his or her masterpiece on the computer, they must contend with a vast array of new printing technologies, image management software (sometimes called RIP), and different ink types and substrates to produce their final print. Until now that process has remained a complete mystery to all but a few. But at last Harald Johnson has come forward with his new book Mastering Digital Printing to explain the process from the basics to the complex. Perhaps what I like most about the book is that is not just a technical manual, but really goes a long way into addressing head on some of the issues that are raging in the art world today regarding digital artwork. Things like what the difference is between a digital reproduction and digital original, and what a Giclee print is. These topics really shed some light onto some controversial and often overlooked issues. On the technical side he does a very deft job of delicately explaining complex terms such as printer resolution, dpi, and lpi so that even a beginner can start to get an adequate grasp of the subject. This is a book aimed at artists, not propeller heads. And while his coverage of the different printing technologies may be a bit more information than most artists want, it is never the less important when one is considering plunking down $300 or more for a print based on those technologies. He also does an outstanding job of explaining scanning and what artists really need to know about sending out work to be scanned, or scanning it themselves. Finally he addresses two important issues for the professional artist, permanence and substrates. While some of this does go into the deep end, it provides necessary and often overlooked information that seems to be cropping up more and more at art shows and galleries. All in all, this book is a compendium of information for serious digital artists. If all you want to do is produce snap-shots from your inkjet printer, this book is probably not for you. But if you are a professional or serious amateur artist wants to obtain the highest quality translation from the virtual representation of their art work to the physical one, this book is a must.

    The Master of Digital Printing

    Harald Johnson has prepared a fantastic book. It is comprehensive in it's scope; packed with information on photographic and fine art printing from the desktop to the highest end service bureau. I greatly appreciate the organization of the book as well as how Mr. Johnson anticipates the readers concerns by providing complete definitions and cross references throughout. I highly recommend this book for everyone with an interest in understanding digital printing as well as those wishing to master their own printing.

    Highly recommended!

    I f you are at all serious about producing beautiful prints from your inkjet printer, you must get Harald Johnson¿s book, ¿Mastering Digital Printing.¿ Johnson reveals everything that you need to know to get great results and does it in a very reader-friendly way. From getting an image into the computer, to calibrating your monitor, to understanding why you would possibly need a printer profile, his easy to read style makes sense. A great example is the chapter, ¿Making a Great Inkjet Print.¿ Johnson explains, in a step-by-step manner, an easy to follow method (workflow) for making the print. There is much more to this book and all of it is excellent. From simple concepts to more technical information: it¿s all there. Want to know what a printer profile is all about? Ever wonder how paper can be tested for lightfastness at home to simulate years of Aunt Martha¿s picture hanging on the wall? You¿ll find it here. We are going to use this as the primary text for our new Digital Printing course at Community College of Philadelphia¿s Department of Photographic Imaging. Highly recommended! Stan Shire, M.Ed. Associate Professor and Chair Department of Photographic Imaging Community College of Philadelphia Adobe Certified Expert - Photoshop

    A Time Whose Book Has Come

    ¿Mastering Digital Printing¿ is a book whose time has come, but it is also a time whose book has come. Digital tools have already effected the way many of our artforms are produced and appreciated and many who are working in digital art and subsequent digital fine art printmaking realize that a critical mass has just about been reached that will have a far reaching effect on the way we make, market and distribute Art of the future. One could begin at page one of "Mastering Digital Printing" by Harald Johnson and by the time you close the cover know everything there is to know about the history, tools, theory and practice of making digital art prints. It is a book both for beginners and for filling in those weak areas that even an expert digital artist may have glossed over in these decades of development. The text points out drawbacks, as well as, advantages and it is both highly technical and friendly to read. In the end, ¿Mastering Digital Printing¿, leaves the reader standing exactly where the Art is; poised at the brink, ready for explosive growth, following a rich and varied beginning. As we know, things will change wherever there is evolving digital technology at hand, but this book will always be significant for the history and reliable background that it imparts on this far ranging topic. If you are interested in Art you should know what is in this book.

    Digital Printing: Subject Mastered!

    This new book represents a uniquely detailed description and explanation of digital printing technology as it pertains to the world of fine art and what might be termed art photography. For artists working with digital technology as their chosen medium, this work provides more than sufficient explanation to enable the artist to intelligently work through all the issues involved with digital printmaking and digital output technology. Whether the artist is doing (or wants to do) his own prints, or is looking at a commercial digital printmaker, this work provides the understanding to do either or both with a rational, thought-through approach. And furthermore, this book offers a wealth of detail and information for others, be they collectors of fine art, commercial printmakers, or others in the fine art community, most specifically including museum and gallery personnel. And to photographers of all description, it provides a fine understanding of the new digital printing processes, and their uses in the various levels and types of photography. All around, a hugely useful book.

    "The" book on digital printing for fine artists and photographers

    Have you always wanted to know the real history of digital printing and Giclée? Harald has conducted considerable research on this topic and he presents the whole history in this book¿it is a wonderful read! Are you confused about which digital printer to buy? This book offers the pluses and minuses for most types of printers. Do you need some guidance on choosing papers and inks, or even a continuous inking system? The leading vendors and their products are well covered. Picking a professional print service, developing a workflow for making digital prints, color management, and print permanence are just a few of the other important topics that are discussed in detail. The Appendix, which lists all kinds of useful resources for fine artists and photographers wanting to make digital prints, is just about worth the cost of the book itself. I would have liked to have seen more in-depth ¿how-tos¿ in this book, but there is only so much you can cover on this topic in a nearly 400 page book. Harald is to be commended for having been the first author to write a ¿useful¿ book on this rapidly changing and important topic. If you are looking for a book on digital printing¿this is the book to buy.
