One of the most satisfying moments for digital artists is the final printing of their finished work. However, it is also one of the most frustrating challenges for a digital artist. In the past, using an inkjet printer to produce serious digital art wasn't a consideration due to the limitations of the inkjet printers and inks. But that is beginning to change and this book, by Uwe Steinmueller and Juergen Gulbins, is written for the digital artist who wants to produce fine artwork on the next generation inkjet printers.

The authors begin with the basics. They dispel some of the mystery behind ppi and dpi and show you how to decide what is best for your project based on several factors including the type of printer and printer drivers, as well as how your choice of paper and ink work together. Another challenge you will encounter frequently in the digital art world is synchronizing your computer monitor, camera, scanner and printer so that the image you see on your computer screen is consistent with what you get from your printer. The authors discuss several technical procedures that will help you to profile your hardware and software to better predict the print results. The next task before the actual printing process is preparing your image for printing and the authors cover several preparation tasks including scaling the image to accommodate the print requirements and making adjustments to sharpness, brightness, shadows, highlights, and contrast.

Choosing the best printer and software for your needs can be very difficult and expensive. The authors discuss the most popular fine art inkjet printers on the market and help you make decisions about when and why to use the many built-in and add-on print features. They begin by discussing the features that come with these new inkjet printers and then move on to add-on software such as AdobeR PhotoshopR, LightroomTM and ColorByte ImagePrint. They discuss printing packages and RIP (Raster Image Processor) and why you might need the more advanced features these provide. Finally, you are ready to print your test print and the authors show you how to evaluate your test print, make corrections and then print, mat and frame the final artwork.

The authors are both successful photographers and technical writers.
