Unsharp Mask Demystified
Thursday September 9, 2004
by Ellen Anon

"Ask any number of digital photographers the settings they use in Photoshop’s Unsharp Mask filter (USM) to sharpen their images and that’s the number of different responses you are likely to get. Because of this a significant number of people turn to plug-ins to do their sharpening for them. However once you understand the basic principles involved in using the USM it is fairly easy to make it work predictably and effectively."

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.

AuthorSubject: Loupes & task lights   [Go to Bottom of Page]
Steve Fisk
Posted on Mon Oct 13, 2003 11:12 PM

I am just starting up a photo restoration business and need some advice on loupes and task lights.

When I go to sites like BH Photo and Adorama I find a bewildering number of loupes. I just want a simple one to examine prints and negatives but am not sure what power to get, or what quality level I need. The prices range from several hundred dollars to as low as $10. I don't think I need anything fancy. A friend uses an inexpensive 8x loupe picked up for few bucks in a garage sale. I would appreciate some feedback on this.

Similar question regarding a task light for viewing prints. I have an Ott-Lite, which is full spectrum, but when I go on their site I don't see anything about them being used by photographers. I would like to keep my investment minimal at this point so if the Ott-Lite is OK I will just use that. On the other hand if I need a 5000K unit from GTI or some similar company I need to know that too.

In both cases reliable sources for best price would be appreciated. I am a member of NAPP and can get discounts from some companies.

Thanks - Steve Fisk
