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: ID2 MOIRES SOLUTION - but why?   [Go to Bottom of Page]
Adrian Brown
Posted on Tue Nov 11, 2003 11:15 PM

After 2 very frustrating days i have stumbled accross something that works but i'm not sure why? From my earlier post you will see i was having trouble printing images as part of a layout in Indesign 2. The problem was that the images looked on screen and printed fine from PhotoShop7 BUT in ID2 they looked and printed with a very strong Moire through them.

The master image specs as follows:
- 300 or 350 ppi, approx 30x20cm, adobe98, RGB, layered tiffs.

For ID2 they were used at a quater to half this size.

I'm printing strait to an Epson 2100 @ 1440dpi, no 3rd party RIP

Doing the following means the images print as they do in PS (well for me anyway):

1) In PS resize the image to roughly the size required for ID, but at 288ppi
(nb. 288 works i have tried other ppi's and they dont work - i suspect it has something to do with what Jeff Schewe et al were talking about under the post 1440 vs 2880 dpi)

2) save doc as an EPS, using the following options:
-preview: mac (8bits/pixel)
-encoding: binary
- half toning: off
- inc transfer function: on
- postscript colour mng: on
- image interpolation: on

3) 'place' in ID (selecting the EPS file just made), options:
- read embedded opi links: on
- apply PS clipping path: on
- proxy generation= use tiff or pict preview.

4) fit image proporionally

The image will still appear on screen at 100% with a moire (not quite as bad) but if you zoom in to 400% (in my case) it disappears completely and prints without it.

Most likely allot of the above could be off or on and make no diff. please advise if any glaring ones. I did try allot of the above individually without success, but as a combination it seems to work.

1) More importantly any ideas on why this works?
2) Does it give ID better info to work with ?
3) and therefore should i bedoing it as a matter of practice for all the images, even if they seem fine when printed in ID?

regards adrian

P.S thanks for your help Andrew - you have seen 2 examples of what i was trying to print, they now both print exactly in ID as they do in PS.
