Lab photographic printers
Category : Studio
It gets back to the origional screen size of coputer monitors. As a photographic printer And so it’s a major pain in the Fuji, Agfa and Konica labs. People come to me because of the finished result they recieve not the label on the equipment I use. Some like vivid colours, some like warm colours I print for this. When I get to know the customers preference I print to that. Of course, they have impressive wedding photos in the window and i feel that the developing of photos is their main business and the internet is just a sideline. Regarding using another shop.does anyone in Phuket know of a shop that can sort this? Fact, kodak shop i was using should be about as good as i could get. Yes we colour correct the photos as most digital camera have a really terrible colour space and are bad at representing high contrast or over and under exposed images.
The shop i use sometimes cut the tops or bottoms off my 6×4 photos when i have them printed. Not on all photos though. I’m not positive if for the most part there’s as much difference between the 2 brands when getting digital prints rather than from 35mm film. Nonetheless, that’s just my colour preference between brands, kodak shops and hurry up and tell them ‘mai bap see’, at a push I will go to a Fuji shop. Essentially, while causing dark pictures to be lightened up, that adds alot of digital noise/grain, Another thing plenty of print shops seem to do with digital photos, is colour correct them to what they think is correct. No colour correction, when I stick mine in for prints I hurry up and let them know. To clarify, So it’s not the paper dimensions that affects your chosen print format, Sorry for not being clear.
IQ lab mentioned above is no this lab.
At higher price than any other lab I know, they do reasonably well done. It’s not always easy to ask them to redo the job without having to pay. Aspect ratio of most digital cameras is the equivelant to 4″ x 25″, as stated above. Besides, the solutions available are either. Thank you both for your replies. The answers are exactly correct in that the shop do indeed appear to be doing the width correctly but not the top or the bottom. You can find some more information about this stuff here. That gonna be overexposured is of no concern. Generally, and sometimes learning the operator how to use their own machine i still haven’t found a shop that does it correctly, just after trying many shops.
Actually the print is the perfomance, to quote nsel Adams the negative is the score.
You wouldn’t get what you look for, if you do not communicate and give the printer the chance to understand what you need.
Or ask why they feel so that’s a waste of time and paper, I’d say if you are not happy go back and ask them to do it again. When they listen or understand, That is part of my education role, it also helps to build the business. This is where it starts getting really serious. Burn to CD when finished. That’s right! Second is overprinting. Remember, cD and have the CD printed.
You can not only shrink to fit as it shouldn’t fit.
