Getting photos on paper as true to colour as possible depends on many factors. Well prepared data is essential and saves a lot of time, trouble and money. This workshop provides professional expertise to help you get the most out of your photos for the printed result. Digital and offset printing will also be discussed – with a special focus on photo book production. After an introduction to the basics of colour management, colour profiles and the paper’s influence on the printed image are explained in detail. Practical examples will show how to optimise files with Photoshop. Participants may bring files and prints for evaluation.
