In Topic: Printer Issue

HI Stewart,

I have both Photoshop and Lightroom, but have only just got them so still learning. I have just finished putting my photos into Lightroom so will take a look at the printing options.

Will let you know how it goes :)

Hi Emma,

Printing your digital images is likely the most frustrating part of photography...after getting the image you want of course. Getting your monitor calibrated is great, but you do need to use a colour aware software such as PS or LR, there are others out there of course. I believe another program is Qimage, it's more of a printing package. What software are you using to print? Photoshop & Lightroom both have printer dialog boxes that allow you to have PS or LR control the printer and there let you select the paper profile. If you're using HP paper then there should be HP Profiles installed when you installed the printer drivers. If you are using 3rd party papers, depending on which manufacturer, they may or may not have ICC profiles for download on their websites.

Your image does look a bit washed out, identify an area on your photo that you know should be a neutral grey and click on that to adjust your white balance. You also mentioned that your prints are dark, what was the brightness level that you used when you used the Huey? You should try to keep it in the 100cdms range, no more than 125.

Good luck, and keep us updated on any progress



In Topic: Canvas Prints

I like no 6 best, I would also look at splitting the picture onto two two canvas', but that's my personal opinion because I really like that kind of affect.

Would also go with 3, 9 and 1.

Thanks guys for your views.

I probably have an equal amount of cards both SD and compact flash so will check out both cameras.

It's all exciting stuff :)
