Are you struggling to get good prints from your images? Are your digital photos hogging your hard drive instead of hanging out in snappy albums and archives? Looking for ways to improve your prints beyond simple snapshots?

Written by popular photographer, columnist, and digital imaging expert Jon Canfield, this book shows you how to easily enhance and prepare your digital images for printing. Step-by-step instructions and tutorials coupled with full-color images and screenshots explain how to use Photoshop CS2 or Elements for color management and correction; editing images for printing, including properly sizing, sharpening, and converting to monochrome; to fix lighting; and more. You'll also learn how to take your printing to the next level by: using different print technologies, papers, and inks; selecting Raster Image Processors; framing and mounting their prints; self-publishing; and effectively working with print services for the best output possible.

The HDR Book

Author: Rafael Concepcion
Publisher: Peachpit Press
ISBN: 9780133748901
Release Date: 2014-04-10
Genre: Photography

When it comes to HDR, only three key ingredients are needed: hardware, software, and post-processing technique. Hardware is simple–there are only a few things you need to set up and shoot an HDR series. Software is vastly improved, making it easier for anyone to create an HDR image. The hard part is the post-processing technique. There are only two options: hours and hours of experimentation or The HDR Book. Featuring real-world interviews with passionate HDR photographers, this updated edition of the popular The HDR Book, by Rafael “RC” Concepcion, is more than a how-to and different from any other HDR book out there. While other books on HDR tend to lean toward the esoteric or formulaic, this book takes another approach. It's a complete and total HDR workshop that teaches you the one thing that most other books miss— once you've tone mapped your image with HDR software, you're still not finished. Within the pages of this book, you'll find 10 projects–now updated!–shot with everything from a point-and-shoot to a 37-megapixel, medium-format camera. The projects are designed to show you how the subtle differences in each scenario (lighting, subject, environment, etc.) dictate the post-processing needed to achieve one of the many final looks covered. You'll learn not only the different tone map settings RC used, but you’ll also learn the final steps taken in Photoshop to complete each image. Then, you'll recreate these looks your self using the exact same RAW files that RC used! Plus, you get four bonus images to play with and create your own look. The end result: a more intrinsic understanding of the nuances of HDR that will help you create the images you’ve always wanted. Best of all, The HDR Book is written using the three top HDR processing programs in the industry today: Photoshop’s HDR Pro, Photomatix Pro, and HDR Efex Pro. No matter which program you use, you'll be able to follow along and create your own stunning looks in no time.
