By Conrad J. Obregon VINE VOICE on November 12, 2013
Format: Kindle Edition
One of the biggest disappointments new photographers face is when they go to print an image that appears just fine on their monitors. Often the image looks terrible: the image is too dark or colors don't look the way they looked on the screen. This book is designed to reduce that disappointment.

This is the third edition of this book, and while I gave the first edition a less than stellar review, I find this book to be much improved. After a general discussion of different print techniques, in which the authors reveal they will focus on ink-jet printing, they launch into a discussion of inks, paper and print performance. This is followed by a discussion of color management, the process by which the color in one's camera, monitor and printer are brought into agreement. Next there is a discussion of printing workflow which discusses adjustments to an image for tonality and color. Chapter five deals with the actual process of setting switches and sliders for the actual printing. The authors discuss the use of printing packages and raster image processors (RIPs) and then black and white prints. Finally they discuss image evaluation and presenting fine art prints. There are four appendixes, including printer selection, papers, a glossary and recommended books, organizations and web sites.

In my review of the first edition I took the authors to task for spending so many pages on optimizing the image, but I found the workflow section substantially improved, perhaps because my own skills have advanced enough to understand the methods they discussed. I particularly liked the discussion of making what for me were more subtle selections to adjust tonality and color.

This is always a slighted topic with all software and particularly photography programs. Getting whats on you screen over to a matching print has never been harder than today because the software "options" just get more confusing. This book for the first time brought it all together for me. It is a complete course on how to envision, craft and deliver that perfect print. It not only explains the computer - printer link but also the role of papers, inks and print environment to give you that final image you are looking for. I consider myself a prosumer. I don't shoot for money but I spend a lot of it to get the images I want. The weakness for me has been the ability to first time/every time get that 16x20" print out of the printer and into a display frame. This is the book that got me there.

I have been doing fine art printing using both inkjets and a Lightjet lab for several years. Uwe's book is right on the money. It confirms tips and techniques I have learned through my own testing as well as several new approaches that have improved my end result. The section on calibrating and white point sets alone are worth the price of the book.

My only disagreement would be to calibrate at full brightness to let the software adjust the levels. It is most accurate and you never worry about how the monitor and computer are set.

It's the best reference book I've come across for printing in the fine art genre. Though I'm reading it straight through, my notes are based on the index so that I can group all of the information on one point in one place for quicker reference when I'm deciding what, and how to print an image. It's also been invaluable for paper choices and for printers and inks. An all around terrific reference. I highly recommend it.

I've been sending my work out for printing for several years and wanted to gain creative and quality control of my own work. Printers and papers and all the technical things related to creating fine art works seemed very daunting to me. I did not have the advantage of years of experience in traditional darkroom and printing to make the jump in all the print concepts to the digital world. This book brought me up to speed on all I needed to know to feel comfortable jumping in and producing quality prints immediately.

I had already mastered to my satisfaction post processing techniques and digital darkroom techniques to ensure that my prints sent out to services returned satisfactorily, so the concepts in this book related to post processing were easily understood. If you are new to digital post-processing, you may need to spend some time on resources outside this book to become proficient with them. This book does not teach what all the programs and techniques do but instead how they influence and help you express your own vision.There are also many links in the book to tools and websites for other techniques and information that I found useful.

This book does a good job of covering paper and ink types and how the choices you make there might impact your work. That was exactly what I needed. The book also covers the current brands and types of printers as well as how to set up and use ICC profiles for printers and papers as well as how to update and use the printer drivers inside both iOS and Windows.

The Kindle edition almost made me give this book four stars because of some of the display quirks, but it isn't that bad and the content of the book really helped to make a substantial impact on my selection of printers and paper choices. I bought the Kindle edition because the print copy was not yet available.
