Format: Paperback
When I was only a little younger, but far less experienced with digital imaging, I once said (somewhat facetiously) that in an ideal world all one should need to print an image well was the printer manufacturer's instruction manual. I am a little older and a great deal more experienced and I now know printing images is no joking matter. Luckily I can turn to Jeff Schewe now for printing help.

This book is a companion to his book The Digital Negative: Raw Image Processing in Lightroom, Camera Raw, and Photoshop. In it Schewe covers almost everything one needs to know about printing. He does it for both Photoshop and Lightroom without confusing the separate procedures, and for both color and black and white. He does not have much faith in printers other than Epson and Canon for fine arts printing, so HP and other printer owners will be disappointed. After a brief history of image printing and printers, he launches into a discussion of color management, which is the adjustment of images from camera or scanner to monitor to print so that colors appear consistent. Although he sometimes provides really detailed procedures that many folks might skip if they are not obsessive about their prints, he is also realistic, as when he opines that one really only needs to profile one's camera for a few conditions. Next he describes how to prepare an image for printing, briefly touching on tone and color adjustments and spending more time on sharpening and noise reduction. He shows how to soft proof an image to adjust it fit the qualities of the paper being printed. He then shows the actual procedures for sending the image to print.

Format: Paperback
A print is a thing of great beauty. A great print is that completed long pass down the football field at the end of a very exciting Super Bowl. You have captured that fabulous image, which it feels as if it took your entire career to capture. It looks terrific on your screen but it's just not translating to the paper.

One of the many areas we are called upon for our consulting expertise is printing. It frustrates many serious photo enthusiasts as well as some of the industry's top professionals. We admit to being frustrated by the process, ourselves. What's maybe even more frustrating is that being able to make that translation from the display screen to the paper is the scarcity of information on professional printing techniques.

The reviews we publish are our own journals. They serve as our reference notes. We want to be up front about disclosing that we travel in many of the same circles as the author, Jeff Schewe. We have never met nor even conversed, but he shares comments on product developments in a private professional online forum we frequent.

CH 1 - A DIGITAL PRINTING PRIMER - We strongly believe that it's not possible to know where you are going unless you understand what has come before you got involved. Jeff opens with an excellent review of the history of inkjet printing. For those who have not lived it, this sets the stage. Don't skip it. This is a fun read with some celebrity storytelling.

CH 2 - COLOR MANAGEMENT - Understanding color requires you to digest a fair amount of physics classes but this is far more exciting than we remember from high school. This is where too many books skimp and the complete story is never told. This chapter alone is worth the purchase price.

Again, in the spirit of Ansel Adams master series, Jeff has captured the necessary steps to take a digital "negative" and transform it into a print. He covers the process completely, except for one area: making, ordering and using custom profiles. While he does discuss them, I feel like he could go a little deeper into the topic. Other than that, this is the guide to printing we've all been waiting for.

The amount of information and techniques on digital fine art printing is tremendous. The book is extremely informative and provides very thoughtful insight on digital printing. I suspect it is the definitive book for anyone who wants to create great prints of their digital photos right now.

Even for those who are familiar with Jeff Schewe's video tutorials from Luminous Landscape, while the book re-treads some techniques discussed in the video, the additional insight the book provides on the basis and theories behind the techniques are worth the price of the book.

Format: Paperback
Having read the last book, The Digital Negative, I felt compelled to purchase this next book and I have not been disappointed. Jeff writes with the experience and knowledge from a life time of photography. The information is explained in a very down to earth, matter of fact, common sense way. The book is worth getting just for Chapter 5 it self, Attributes Of A Perfect Print. There's knowledge in this chapter you'd be hard pressed to find anywhere else, or take days to find and its all here in this one chapter.
The only gripe I do have is, I feel, is his unfair criticism of printing from Photoshop, over emphasising how time consuming it is making sure all those boxes are ticked correctly. When I have a print ready, I apply a Pixel Genius Output Sharpener, open the print dialogue make sure all the settings are correct and print, it only takes a few seconds. A man of Jeff's talent would whizz through this seconds. I think there's some subtle manipulation going on here to slowly persuade us to eventually move over to Lightroom, but I'm very happy with Photoshop, its more hands on. Anyway, apart from that, this is a highly informative book that everybody who has any interest in quality printing should buy. If you got this then you should buy the last one and if you got the last one you must buy this one, you'll never know what you're missing!
In fact if you have these 2 books and buy Martin Evenings new book, Adobe Photoshop CC For Photographers, or if you are into Lightroom his new Lightroom 5 book or both, these are all the books you'll ever need for still photography.
