Your last steps to differentiate print and web ?

Hi there,

I was having some thoughts about my retouching workflow to be as flexible as possible to suit the most requests.

So ... I was wondering the following:

A definition first :

Let's call the "first master" the file that is being retouched and that will be used to generate any of the "second masters".

Let's call the "second masters" the files generated from the "first master" that will ultimately be used as final versions for :
- web publishing
- print publishing on some kind of paper
- print publishing on another kind of paper or any other support ...
- ...

Now the questions :
1. What are the common steps of your workflow that lead to your "first master" ?
2. What are the steps that lead to differentiate your "second masters" and adapt them for any particular output (especially print or web) ?

( PS : thank you mistermonday for support on this crashing thread whatever the weird reason ! )

Re: Your last steps to differentiate print and web

Resize and output sharpen (see, convert to the output color space (sRGB for web as an example).

That’s about it. Upon saving, you’ll probably want to flatten the image and if in high bit, convert to 8-bits per color (you’ll have to for JPEG save to the web).
