This week I am going to tell you how to save your files for Lambda photographic and Giclée printing. Yes, we do Giclée and If you didn't know already we have an offer at the moment for a free A3 print. Lambda photographic or Giclée you choose. Now that's something to smile about on a rainy Friday!
This week I'm going to tell you a bit about PhotoShop Levels. Levels might sound complicated but they're really very simple. Levels are made up of 3 components: the black point, white point and the midtone slider. Adjusting these sliders changes the level of light and dark within areas of your image. If you liked the Tip or have any question just leave a comment and I'II get right back to you.
This week I explain Gamut or Colour Gamut. The human eye can see a far greater range of colours and tones than can be reproduced by a digital camera, monitor or output device (printer). All of these devices have their own colour range or Gamut anything outside of their colour space will be out of Gamut. In Fire our aim is to overcome these restrictions to give you the perfect Fine Art Photographic Print.
Happy New Year! To open 2011 I'm going to explain the different file formats you can save your images in PhotoShop. Which are best for print, photographic printing and the web.
Every computer screen displays images differently. To make sure all those hours spent tweaking images in Photoshop don't go to waste you need to calibrate your monitor. If you don't the images you see on screen and your final prints will look worlds apart. That's why I've made a tutorial to show you how to calibrate your monitor using the Apple display calibration utility. If you have any questions just leave a comment and I"II get back to you!
This week I'm going to show you how to set your desktop image to a neutral gray. It's a little known fact that colourful desktop images affect your ability to view colours in your image accurately. Setting your desktop to grey and keeping your workspace surroundings as neutral as possible will create the optimum working environment for editing and printing your images. So dim your lights, take your Joseph's technicolour dream coat poster off the wall and play my tutorial video. You will be set up in no time at all.
