Show synopsis Alongside the digital photography revolution, a new form of photographic printing has emerged. Digital printing, using desktop inkjet printers, has now replaced the traditional darkroom for many photographers. In the last two years, new advances in print quality have made inkjet prints indistinguishable from conventional photographs and this now the most popular way to make digital prints. For less than 200 pounds, a photographic quality inkjet can print onto a wide variety of different papers and for the very first time, photographs can share the handmade qualities of a fine art print. The Digital Printing Handbook is a darkroom manual for this new digital age. It provides clear and uncomplicated instructions for setting up your workstation and and jargon-free advice on using all types of printers, papers and inks, including an exciting range of colour recipes for recreating darkroom and vintage print processes. Both simple and complex projects are explained with equal clarity and are supported by a comprehensive reference section. Each technique is simplified to work with all recent versions of Adobe Photoshop and the easy to follow step-by-steps assume little prior knowledge of the subject. Illustrated throughout with the author's own stunning photographs, The Digital Printing Handbook takes the reader into a new era of creative techniques.
