You're entering the mirky waters of digital printing. It can be a frustrating and confusing world. It's hard to say why your prints aren't coming out as expected - there are a number of variables to take into account. For example: - The method of input (i.e. photographing or scanning the original). If don't incorrectly you could have color shifts.
- Computer monitor calibration. If you're monitor isn't calibrated correctly the colors are shifted in the computer and will cause output color shifts (i.e. when the print is created)
- Color space issues. If you're printing a .jpg image it's set up to be seen by the eye on a monitor, which uses red, green and blue light to make the picture. The computer must interpret the colors set up for RGB and translate it to CMYK (Cyan, Magenta, Yellow and Black) pigment. There are usually color shifts in that.
- color output. That is, your printer. Is is a good quality printer that is carefully set up for reproduction?
- paper/media. Mating the wrong media with the wrong ink can create color shifts.
Like I say, it's a tricky thing going from original, to screen, to paper. There are a lot of things that can go wrong. If know a good graphic designer who can help you get things set up correctly it'll probably go a long way in reproduction.
Hope this helps and good luck! Nate
There projects everyone is working on sound very cool! This weekend I am mostly writing: material for a 40-day challenge on my blog (which has gotten a more positive response than I expected), and getting the first book in a public domain classic literature series ready for Kindle. I'm also hoping to get started on installing a huge dry-erase board in my home office.
Oh yeah, and working on my taxes! (Blech!)
Hi guys, just returned home from a trip and trying to get caught up! Timmery, I like your question. I am trying to make prints of my artwork, however I'm running into all kinds of problems. Have any of you done this? And Timmery, I'm wondering if you've considered making prints from some of your journal covers? My issues are having to do with the color not coming through vivid enough on my prints. I'm using fine art paper, but not sure that I like it. Anybody else tried this?
Thanks to all for adding your insights about the webinar, Square Space, and story telling. I missed the webinar but I feel like I got a lot of the best parts of it from reading the insights here.
Thanks for the plug about Square Space Nathan. Interesting site, I went to their home page and looked around a bit; I do like the clean, sleek look they have.
Happy Friday everyone!
Just wanted to jump in an give a plug for Squarespace. I noticed Ann Rea's website was on Squarespace during the "broadcast" so I looked around a little - it's a very simple, stock site that has absolutely no customization. Most could reproduce her site in a couple hours.
I used to have a web design business that was built on top of the Squarespace platform and I still love it! In fact, I will soon be helping people build websites with Squarespace once again.
It's very powerful and stable, easy to work with, and (one thing people rarely mention) it's fantastic for SEO. Without any work my Squarespace sites naturally out perform traditional sites because serch engines love Squarespace sites.
From an artists perspective, it's beautiful and easy to edit! I just love Squarespace. :)
