The Barnes & Noble Review
You’ve got a color printer, but you’re not quite getting the results you hoped for. It happens to everyone. But there are solutions -- and PC Magazine has them.

PC’s overrun with digital photography mavens. Given a chance to strut their stuff, they cover this subject from every angle. Saving your images at the right resolution. Using the optimal paper and ink. “Soft-proofing” to check your image before you use up expensive paper.

You’ll learn how to remove digital “noise” from your photos (along with a host of basic photo editing techniques). You’ll master printing transparencies (and everything from invitations to T-shirts). There’s great advice on using online print services, and on preserving your digital prints. And that’s just scratching the surface. If you’re serious about your printed images, this one’s for you. Bill Camarda, from the December 2004 Read Only
