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.
Otherwise, the book is a cornucopia of information and resources.
The one weakness is that it really focuses on Photoshop use and does not get into other software. But that didn't bother me because it is a book focused on printing, not on processing with software. There are other books and online resources for that!
This book did ultimately help me select a better, more sophisticated printer for my current needs. That was the most helpful part for me.
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.
I still shoot and process both color negatives, transparencies and B&W film..but I scan and print digitally. This is the book that has made that part of the learning so much easier. It is not "Fine Art Printing Made Simple". It is however a serious book for one who wants to go further than the push of the auto button.
