After the last few movies, you should be beginning to get comfortable with the idea of resolution …and pixel counts. …We're about to get to the actual Photoshop process of resizing an image, but before we …do, we need to talk about where resizing fits into your workflow. …Earlier, I explained where I think printing should fit into your overall postproduction workflow. …You start by performing the edits that you need to get your image looking right onscreen, …then you move on to printing, which includes applying the adjustments that are needed to …get the image looking good on paper. …You perform these resizings at the beginning of the printing process.…
As you've seen over the last few movies, resizing might involve the removal of pixels from your …image and once those pixels are gone, they're gone. …Now over the long hall, you may choose to print your image at lots of different sizes. …Perhaps you give someone 8 x 10, and they like it so much they come back saying they want …something poster size. …
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.
