11x14. Epson prints or Fuji Final Proofs (cmyk final files).

I'm thinking about taking my 11x14 though and using it for my photography and getting a much larger book for my retouching book. It's so much easier and nicer to see stuff big for before and afters.. dunno. recently I see people just bringing in dvds to interviews because you can see stuff at 100%

Re: Portfolio question

we had a guy come in with a dvd, and he was fumbling and clicking away to get a before and after comparison...he was moving windows like a madman, it was awkward to say the least...

yeah, if you are going to bring a dvd in, you need to have all your files set up as just before and after layers (2 max) and let someone else drive. Still, for me, it takes to long to load images/copy off a dvd and while it's nice to be able to view stuff at 100% and beyond, you get a real sense of a persons color ability when you see prints. I can't tell you how many bad prints I've seen of otherwise ok work. Persons like that never get hired. It's your book and it had better be perfect for the most part, and that includes the prints.

Re: Portfolio question

I used to use a 12x19 book or a 16x20 book for my portfolio with canon prints.
They are larger, but very visible. pain to carry around though.

I tried a dvd once but the computer that it was viewed on was to slow to go through it and it was that last time I did that.

Re: Portfolio question

Yeah, I have considered doing a 16x20 book, but I don't know that I'll do that anytime soon or at all as I hope to not need it for quite some time and/or at all again.

Re: Portfolio question

Hi guys do you do your before and afters in your folios at the same size?
(both at 11x14) in different sleeves side by side?
