Rate & Review

The Expanded Guides are much more than just camera and software manuals. Written by experts and with real-life examples, they are jargon-free and full-colour. They also include a quick reference wallet card (pictured), and "Photographer's Grey" coloured endpapers for metering. With such a comprehensive - yet accessible - approach, both amateur and professional photographers alike can release the massive potential of their systems, with superior results.

Most digital photographers will wish to output their images for display purposes, or to use in promotional or publishing work, so it's essential to have an understanding of the printing process and the options available. How, for example, do you ensure that your print matches what you see on your computer screen? How do you get the most from the files taken with your digital camera? Professional photographer David Taylor offers invaluable guidance and expert tips for all keen photographers on the basics of printing, from choosing a suitable printer and printer software to selecting the right papers and inks in the Ammonite Press Photographic Digital Printing - The Expanded Guide. Advice is given on how to use image manipulation software to adjust exposure and contrast, improve highlights, correct color, sharpen an image, reduce digital noise, remove dust and other marks, crop and resize prior to printing. There's also advice on shooting and printing black and white images, plus how to produce sepia, split-toned, old-style grainy or artistic lith prints. Practical printing information includes step-by-step details on:

  • the difference between inkjet, thermal and laser printers
  • the choice between dye and pigment inks
  • the characteristics of glass, matt, pearl or art papers
  • the mysteries of colour profiles and colour calibration
  • making a test strip
  • print settings, paper size and paper settings
  • assessing a print
  • common printing problems such as banding
About The Author: David Taylor is an award-winning landscape and travel photographer from Hexham in Northumberland. His work has taken him all over the world, from the sun-kissed beaches and azure seas of Zanzibar to the icy wastes of the Arctic Circle, but his first love remains the wild countryside and rugged coastline of his home county, which he has photographed extensively.
