Making prints from digital images

A tip regarding making hardcopy prints from high resolution digital images.

Many of my clients purchase high resolution images in order to make hardcopy prints of their own, and I give them this important tip.

If you have a good quality printer, you may be able to make prints that have good color and contrast. But the quality will be affected by the printer, your ink and the “color profile” that your printer and computer are using.

If you choose to make prints at a retail location, plan to use a professional lab if possible or at least a location that will let you choose the option for “NO ADJUSTMENTS”.

The photos that I create are “fine tuned” for color and contrast and if you use someplace like Walgreens or a self-serve machine, the photos will be printed with a process that nearly always adds too much color saturation and contrast, which will blow out most of the fine detail in your photographs. Professional labs, and some retail locations like Costco will let you select “no adjustments” and your photos will hopefully come out as you – and I – intended.

Great time at TICA Annual show!

Had a great time at the 40th TICA Annual International cat show last weekend in Las Vegas!

If you had photos taken of your cat(s), I’ll be sending you an email with a link to view proofs. Please be patient as this may take 2-3 days. 🙂

I’ve posted awards candids from the banquet here: https://pbase.com/dianastarr/tica2019

Chanan Photography has his formal photos posted and should be posting candids as well:
