You can calculate the scanning resolution you require by measuring the original picture. Because resolution is normally expressed in inches, calculations are easiest when the dimensions of the original are in inches as well.
Most recent cameras include integrated Wi-Fi, which enables them to send images – and often movie clips – to smart-phones and tablets or upload them to devices connected to a wireless network. With the majority of people carrying a smart device these days, Wi-Fi is the logical choice for a camera that needs to communicate with the rest of the world.
To ensure the right colours in your images, it helps to understand how colour spaces work… Colour spaces are mathematical models describing the way colours can be represented. The easiest way of visualising them is to think of a box containing all the possible colours that can be produced by mixing the three primary colours of light: red, green and blue.
Strategies to follow when you want to produce the best quality from your inkjet printer.
Today’s inkjet prints have the potential to last and retain their vibrant colours longer than colour prints have ever done in the past, thanks to on-going developments in inkjet inks and papers.
How to get good-looking photo prints from a colour laser printer.
You’ve taken a great shot and, naturally, want to produce as large a print as possible to display. But how can you know just how big you should make it?
All printers come with software for producing prints. This bundled software usually reflects the price and functionality of the printer and always includes the printer driver and an editing application. An online instruction manual is sometimes provided. The functionality of the software usually reflects the price and complexity of the printer, with entry-level printers providing very simple editors, while printers designed for serious amateur and professional photographers come with more sophisticated products like Adobe’s Photoshop Elements.
As we’ve covered printer drivers in Using Printer Drivers and Editing Software, this section is devoted to using paper profiles. When you buy an inkjet printer, the driver software contains pre-loaded ICC profiles for papers suitable for use with that printer. Paper profiles can also be found in the Technical Support section of the printer manufacturer’s website under Inkjet Printer Drivers. Most manufacturers update them regularly as new products are released and existing products are improved. However, only papers produced by (or for) the printer manufacturer and sold under the manufacturer’s brand name are profiled.
Each link in this chain must connect correctly if you want the pictures you print to have the same colours and tones as the shot you captured. Control is required at each step in the workflow to ensure the best possible prints.
