Join Ben Long for an in-depth discussion in this video Preparing the image for print, part of Photography Foundations: Black and White.
At some point, after you've toned and retoned and untoned and made your image…high key and low key and everything in between, you are going to finally be…ready to print it, but there will be two steps left that you'll have to take.…You have to resize your image for printing, and you have to sharpen it.…Before you do that though, you need to save your image.…Now, I'm assuming you've been saving along the way, but just to be sure, I want…to mention that you need to be saving your image in Photoshop format to…preserve all of the layers.…And up here in the Save dialog box, that's the very first entry, Photoshop…format, not Photoshop EPS, or Photoshop PDF, or any of these other things.…
Save in Photoshop you will preserve all of your layers, and the layering stuff…becomes particularly handy for printing.…For example, in this image, there was this bright bit on this building here and…I toned that down because I found it a little distracting.…When I print, I may decide either it's still too light, or maybe I would like it…
