Refine your ability to create fine art prints with an inkjet printer.
Ever wonder why your prints don't look as good as the images on your computer screen?
In this hands-on workshop, you'll learn to master the craft of making a gallery-ready print with an inkjet printer. Topics covered will include manipulating Photoshop to make fine-tuned adjustments to your digital files, making use of profiles and other printer functions to get the most out of your equipment, and learning to evaluate your prints for contrast and density (and make adjustments accordingly).
Suitable for intermediate to advanced students, you will have ample opportunity to work on your own prints under the guidance of master printer Kylie Wright.
Don't settle for prints that fall flat... commit yourself to mastering the art of the fine print!
- At least 10 images (digital files or scanned film)
