Not sure what UCR means, probably something obvious. Can you fill us in?

thanks

under color removal is when you take out CMY & replace it with black to reduce your ink limit. Best used on images that are more mono in feel when you don't want colour to shift on press causing a cast.

You've been around pre press too long. I'm sure it's discussed in their schools at one point, but it's probably put into the same section in the brain that you and I put calculus or 17th century poetry.
I'm guessing most photographers are self educated, anyway. Look how they treat our little profession. Like that guy who placed the ad for jewelery retouching here and expected quality for, what, 2 minutes a pic..........

Re: Outsourcing Retouching Services To India?

Here's why I am so special: my customers (a few for 10 or so years) say "do the usual for the flesh tones/wrinkles" and I do it. They save money on multiple rounds of corrections and proofs because I understand them. And not for nothing, but because I speak English real good? They understand me, too. Sometimes clients value partnership (though I've probably just jinxed it).

it's used on all images that go to press, unless of course you prefer to use GCR...

Yea your right. GCR on heavy or Maximum is used more on mono feel images to stop colour casts.

Re: Outsourcing Retouching Services To India?

if only to further derail the thread:

doesn't all the UCR and GCR thing become obsolete, since we're now mostly retouching in RGB, and then converting CMYK to print?
