    Frontier success

    Friends
    Today I had a 10x8 photo printed at another local lab. Thay arent a pro lab but the operator was prepared to listen and give me some of his time. We found out that their Frontier does not read any embedded profiles. All of the test prints (saved with different...

    Jakaleena, thanks for your valued input, I will look for a decent pro lab over the next few weeks.
    In addition to my original post, I just got a print made from a negative at the same lab. The 8x6 was really poor. It was on Kodak 100 film and shot with a really nice Pentax lens, I think I'll...

    Losing faith in the Frontier

    Hi everybody, I hope this post finds you all well.
    I have just got some wedding prints back from my local lab and they really aren't too good. They use a Frontier which (as most of us know) prints at 300dpi.
    I have reprinted some of the photographs on my Epson 890 inkjet printer only...

    replied to Matte vs Glossy
    I wish I could get decent matte around here. All my local printers use a matte paper that is very rough and actually ruins the prints, one can see the roughness of the paper spoiling an otherwise smooth image.
    Charles.

    I am looking forward to Olympus' next offerings. Hopefully a 6-7 MP SLR at a sensible price for wedding work

    Epson 890 and XP problem

    Dear Sirs and Ma'ams
    Briefly, what are your experiences with XP and Epson printers in particular the 890. My new notebook runs XP and my new printer (which works fine on my home system) will not work on it, it prints just an inch or so of a photograph and then just stops, spits out the paper...

  • I use the Fuji colour space and save the files with the Fuji profile.
    I take my files into the printers on CD. I have to use the kiosk in the shop, therefor the files on the CD are not affected by what the operator does, the photographs simply get printed. If I take a film in, the operator can...

  • Like I said folks, I use the profiles for my local labs Fuji 330 downloaded from the Fuji site. My monitor is set up as good as I can get it and I'm quite amazed at the colour accuracy I get.
    This may sound like a silly question, but how many of you have your monitor set up correctly?

My aunt sent us the only photograph that she had of me, its 29 years old and about as big as a smartmedia card. I scanned it at 1200dpi, resized it (NOT resampled) to 300 dpi therefor making the image about...

    Q for Jeaniesa

    replied to Help Understanding Curves?
    Im looking forward to reading the serious answers to this question as I only have a vague idea myself.
    I think the curves allows us to adjust certain ranges of highlights and shadows and every range in between. ie if you need to brighten only the very darkest shadows or darken the brightest...

    replied to Do You Print or use a lab?
    If I'm printing proof sheets (16 to a page) I print them at home. Photographs for wedding albums or framed portraits are printed on my local labs Fuji Frontier for longevity.

  • I downloaded the profiles for my local labs Fuji Frontier 330/800 from the Fuji website.
    Last week I had some wedding pics printed and they were really poor, way too contrasty. I went home and checked the embedded profiles on the CD and they were wrong. I resaved the images this time with the...
