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: Digital Capture vs Film   [Go to Bottom of Page]

Posted on Tue Dec 2, 2003 7:00 PM

I did a wedding recently using my Canon 10D in Raw format and took some of the selected images (after retouching and color correction) to my local service bureau and lab.The prints were printed on the Fujix Frontier Printer in matte and inevitably came out with a cyan cast and in my opinion looked rather sickly in general. Even when they " warmed" up the prints, they continued to look substandard. I normally do not have a problem with cyan skin tones on my Epson system as I use profiles made on a Greytag McBeth system and they print just fine in my system every time. My monitor is also calibrated and I am convinced my part of the process is up to professional standards. I asked if their system was profiled and they said that since it was a laser on paper system, profiling was not possible and that this is why wedding photographers are so reluctant to change over to digitial capture. They insisted that the problem is digital capture and given 100 mixed photos on the wall printed on the Fujix, that it was trivial to determine which was taken by digital capture and which was film.

So my question is is whether this is all hype or not. It is hard for me to believe that profiling their Fujix is not possible and that digital capture can not yield good results when it comes to shooting skin tones which was their contention.
