ImagePrint 6 Notes
Thursday September 2, 2004
by Mitch Alland

I am pleased to see that the new ImagePrint manual for v6 is a great improvement over earlier versions and is, in fact, excellent. The extensive Troubleshooting Guide section is a good addition. Also, as program installation has been simplified, I believe that most questions on IP problems that come up on online forums can now be answered by suggesting, in the best Unix tradition, that the user "look it up in the manual...." These notes are based on ImagePrint 6 build 1.08. If you are using a later build some of the issues and glitches discussed below may have been fixed, as ColorByte is aware of all of them.

(R)Evolution II: Color - A New Zone System?
Thursday August 19, 2004
by John Paul Caponigro

Call it revolutionary or evolutionary, the digital advances made in color photography are nothing short of amazing. In photography, we now have independent control of color?s three primary qualities: hue, or the spectrum of colors around the color wheel (red through yellow, green, blue, cyan, magenta and back to red); saturation, the gradient from intense to dull; and brightness, the gradient from dark to light.

I just got back from SantaFeWorkshops, where I took Katrin Eismann's excellent class on Masking and Compositing. At one point, we discussed a method to create an Action, or even a Droplet, so that, each time you opened a new file to work on, (a final choice), you could drag that file onto a Droplet, which might, for example:

1. Add a NewLayer for Burning.
2. Add a NewLayer for Dodging.
3. Add a NewLayer for HueSat.
4. Add a NewLayer for AddFilmGrain.
5. Add copyright info.

Question: I wonder if anyone is doing this as well? I would like to AddCanvas also, say, below the Image Area. Add Black or White, and have this info section added, which would contain name of file, my name, my phone number, copyright info, working space, embedded profile, etc.

I'm talking about hi-rez files here, for jobs. Files that would be sent to clients on CD or FTP, that would be dropped into Quark. Not files for web. The designers would have access easily to all the pertinent file info right there on the file, but easier than say, an Annotation Note. But once they made their Picture Box, your FileInfo could fall outside the PictureBox, so that it would not print.

This could also address that copyright issue about "alteration", in case you were going after damages too. It would be clear that the infringer would have CROPPED the photo, to eliminate the extra Canvas Area that contained the copyright information.

So I'd add a Number 6, to the list above, which would create Canvas Area at the bottom of the frame, and would type in some "canned" information into every final file that left the studio.

Any suggestions/alterations to this plan? The goal here is to have ONE KEYSTROKE that would do all these manual tasks for you.

Here's an brief example:
