GETTING GREAT COLOR 4 PRINT

Wanted to know how to get great color for prints? This video is provide by Blurb.com and is a great overview of what it takes to get great color for photo book.

Remember, the same photo displayed on a monitor (RBG) will not look the same when printed (CMYK) without tweaking it in Photoshop. This is because the monitor and print are two different mediums. Monitor show images that are back lit with Red, Blue & Green light tubes but paper is a combination of Cyan, Magenta, Yellow and Black inks on paper that is dependent on the ambient light of the viewing area.

From this video you will learn the overview of steps/equipment necessary for good color prints to convey the brightness, contrast, clarity and vibrance you see on the monitor. This video is not an overexaggeration, this is what it takes.



Overwhelmed by this video?
Don't have all the necessary equipment?
Don't feel bad, it took me 5 years to get the printing thing down. Give me a call, I can take your photo and prepare all the photos for print.
