Join Ben Long for an in-depth discussion in this video Changing color space in Camera Raw, part of Inkjet Printing for Photographers.
If you're working in Camera Raw, there's a very important raw setting that you're going…to want to double check.…This is an image you saw earlier when were sharpening, you saw the finished version of…this image, this is my original raw file of it.…And when I open it up, if I look down at the bottom here I can see that the camera has…tagged it as an sRGB image, I didn't have my camera set properly.…I can also see that it's currently being converted into an 8-bit image at these pixel dimensions…with this resolution setting. I am going to click on this here, because I need to alter…these workflow options, which is what Adobe calls this particular set of parameters.…
First of all, my camera shoots 12 to 14 bits of data per pixel, that's a really nice…big number, but as Camera Raw is converting it, it's chopping those done to 8-bit numbers.…This does not affect my total range of colors, but it does affect the amount of intermediate…colors that I have.…That means that as I start to edit, I'm not going to be able to push my edits very far…
After a discussion of how to choose a printer, the course covers the process of preparing both black and white and color images using Adobe Photoshop. Ben describes how to take images from looking good onscreen to being properly adjusted for best results on paper, covering details such as sizing, sharpening, and color management.
With photographer and master framer Konrad Eek, Ben explores the creative decisions that photographers should address before printing. What size print? How does print size relate to the message of the photo and to the space where the photo will be displayed? What kinds of paper choices do you have, and how does your photo's content relate to the paper you choose?
The course also describes how to properly evaluate a print and how to handle common challenges that crop up during the printing process.
