Today's digital cameras continue to produce increasingly higher definition image data files, making high resolution, large-format output possible.

In the hands of knowledgeable photographers, these printers are able to produce prints that are comparable to the highest quality darkroom prints on fine art paper. The third edition of this best-selling book provides the necessary foundation for successful fine art printing: the understanding of color management, profiling, paper, and inks. It offers advice on selecting an appropriate printer for long-lasting fine art prints, demonstrates how to set up the printing workflow and select a suitable paper for your subject, and guides you step-by-step through the process of converting an image file to an outstanding fine art print. This new edition covers the most recent lines of high-end inkjet printers, photo papers, and devices for monitor and printer profiling. It also addresses the printing dialogs and some new features of Photoshop CS6.

Author: Sascha Steinhoff
Publisher: dpunkt.verlag
ISBN: 9783864915598
Release Date: 2014-10-15
Genre: Photography

Das Buch richtet sich an Fotografen, die ihre Dia- und Negativbestände in hochwertiger Qualität digitalisieren möchten. Durch die Digitalisierung können selbst alte analoge Filmbestände am PC weiterverarbeitet und archiviert werden. Die speziellen Film-Scantechniken werden mit anschaulichen Beispielen nachvollziehbar dargestellt. Insbesondere die Verwendung von Rohdaten im Scanprozess, wie beispielsweise die Formate Nikon-NEF und Adobe-DNG, sowie deren scanspezifische Besonderheiten, nimmt einen breiten Raum ein. Sorgfältig ausgearbeitete Workflows helfen, den Arbeitsablauf beim Scannen effizient zu gestalten. Die inhaltlich komplett überarbeitete dritte Auflage zeigt exemplarisch anhand der technisch führenden Nikon-Filmscanner, welche Möglichkeiten Fotografen heute zur Archivierung ihrer Bildbestände haben. Diese Techniken können bis auf wenige Ausnahmen auch mit Scannern anderer Hersteller genutzt werden, das gilt insbesondere für die weit verbreiteten Flachbettscanner mit Durchlichteinheit. Außerdem werden diverse alternative Methoden zur Digitalisierung, wie beispielsweise die Archivierung per DSLR vorgestellt. Die Möglichkeiten und Grenzen der Scanprogramme Silver Fast und Vue Scan werden ebenso detailliert erklärt, wie das aus Nikon Scan, View NX und Capture NX2 bestehende Nikon System. Ein weiteres wichtiges Thema sind Korrekturmethoden für Scans mit Photoshop und entsprechenden Plug-ins.
