Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"If you want to learn more about creating a photo gallery from scratch, Jon Canfield goes into detail on the subject in his book, Photo Finish: The Digital Photographer's Guide to Printing, Showing and Selling Images..." (Petersen’s Photographic, 1st August 2005)

The Barnes & Noble Review
This sorely needed book will help professional photographers get their digital images where they belong: into the world.

Jon Canfield and Tim Grey begin with an outstanding primer on digital prints: choosing the right printer and medium, preparing and previewing images, managing workflow, software RIPs, proof sheets, border treatments, even choosing labs and online services. Later, they address mounting, matting, framing, and exhibitions -- even pricing your work, and selling it in galleries.

Speaking of galleries, you’ll learn how to create your own 24x7 gallery on the Web: everything from design and navigation through image compression -- and of course, site promotion. There’s even a full section on creating effective digital slide shows -- in person, via projector, or on the Web or DVD.

Simply put, creating your image is only the beginning. Photo Finish helps with everything that happens next. Bill Camarda, from the December 2004 Read Only
