  • giclee prints

    In my quest to find out what print shops need to reproduce high quality enlargements from cd's I came across something called a giclee print using an iris process. Has anyone seen one? I'm attaching an url that gives some information that they want for a transfer.

    Also I think I erred on on earlier post when I mentioned that the local print shop wanted the cmyk mode. I think they must have said rgb and that they convert to the cmyk.

    Hi Paulette,

    No I never heard of the giclee print. I will have to check out that site as this is something new to me.

    Also I am not so sure I would like to have my photos printed with a process that changes to CMYK because the color range is smaller. Alot of your vivid reds won't be reproduced correctly.

      What's the difference between giclee and glicee?

        Checking print density. CMYK
        by de5m0mike
        How do you guys go about making sure your print densities are within range before sending a file to a printer? For example making sure C+Y+M+K does not add up to more than 280. I know I could click around with the eye dropper and add them up, but is there another way? I've never been able to figure...

        Why do marked areas disappear

        Kindly refer to the attached links.

        The areas marked as red colour looks absolutely fine on display (even the calibrated display) but doesnt print when printing. The Original Image was RGB thats converted to CMYK with Black Point Compensation ON which gives me a output that looks fine...

        How to prepare a photo for CMYK output
        by Pacificpowered

        I'm doing photo retouching work for a guy. He recently asked me if I could make the next job “CMYK print ready”.

        Is thing as easy as switching the mode from RGB to CMYK? Or do I need to bump up the mid-tones on the photo as well? Is there more…?

        Home Use for CMYK Separations
        by Jeff F
        I'm currently working my way through the CMYK separations section of Richard's book for the second time. Are there any significant advantages to printing on an inkjet printer from a CMYK split image? More efficient use of ink possibly, or more accurate colors during print? Just wondering. I'm enjoying...
