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.

AuthorSubject: 16 Bit Editing the Schewe Way   [Go to Bottom of Page]

Jeff,

Following along with your DIFP 16 bit tutorials, I'm really getting the hang
of working in high bit. However I've come upon a bump in the road,
and I can't seem to find the answer in your articles. I don't know what
I'm doing wrong. Here's the problem, and my workflow:

-Capture with a Canon EOS-1Ds in Raw.

-Convert to 16 bit TIF with Adobe Camera Raw after
adjusting sliders to my liking.

-Open 16 bit TIF in Photoshop 7.0.1 with a Mac running 10.2.6

-Duplicate image and convert dupe to 8 bit, also square.

-Using the history brush, paint in light and dark areas.

-Using 8 bit duplicate, I use the lasso tool to create a selection on the
face of the portrait; subject has a ruddy complexion.

-Using Selective color, I reduce the magenta in the red channel on the
lassoed selection. This selection is saved and named.

Here is where my problem begins:

When I drag that 8 bit selection to my 16 bit image and paste the "pin-registered"
image using the shift button before dropping, my original 16 bit image suddenly turns to 8 bit. I thought it would stay in 16 bit.

The same thing happened when dragging an 8 bit selection created after
making a healing brush fix.

Am I doing this the right way?

Stephen Kennedy
