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: I live in a sRGB world   [Go to Bottom of Page]
Robin Stancliff
Posted on Sat Dec 13, 2003 11:31 AM

I work in a comparatively small town and most of the graphic designers work in sRGB. At least one of the magazines is in sRGB and when I questioned it they said' hey, it works for them.'
I work in Adobe 1998 and have had a variety of troubles: my local lab prints only from sRGB, and if I give them 98 files they destroy them. I now convert to sRGB and up the saturation and it works pretty well(they don't have aprofile yet). I have had a similiar issue with having slides made from digital files and make essentiallly the same conversion (my lab has worked with me to sort thru these problems, but all the other photogs, that they work with at least, just deal in sRGB. Some of these other photogs delivered files in sRGB to an art magazine, and then they/the clients wonder why the resulting images are not good...)
Could you discuss some ot the results and pitfalls of the sRGB world? I give any files that are intended for pre press in Adobe 1998, but I wonder what will happen if they instantly convert them to sRGB. (No one has complained at all but I still worry) And some magazines simply say they require CMYK files with no more info than that. I know this is not an ideal world, but it's the world I live in!
I suspect that I'm not the only one dealing with these issues. I went digital about 3 years ago and business has been Great, but it's been very frustrating dealing with all these issues.
Thanks
Robin
