About The Class

Learn the tools and settings you need to make a proper print

Photography’s history is rooted in the creation of a print. In this class, we will take a look at the tools and options you need to consider in both Adobe® Lightroom® and Adobe® Photoshop® to ensure that you get the best print possible. Over the course of the class, we break the printing process down into a few key areas in an attempt to simplify the process and still make sure that you get the best print possible. To make sure we start from the best place possible, we will touch on proper color management, paper selection, and other pre-printing considerations. We then shift our focus to Adobe Photoshop and Adobe Lightroom. We take a look at the tools and settings you need to use to make an amazing print. Finally, we spend a little time talking about final presentation considerations such as editions, signing, and framing.

    Great course! Daniel's ability to walk you through all aspects of properly printing is very helpful. His passion for the 'art' of printing is evident throughout this video. I am really excited and certainly more confident in my ability to enjoy printing as well. I hope that he develops further courses on printing. Cheers, Keith

    Top Class information ! Thank you very much for taking the time to deliver a very professional and insightful first hand hand experience across to us - regards the final and the most important aspect - getting our images printed, we should all be printing more, and getting due value & pleasure out of our prints.. Many years ago i struggled with alto few books to make sense (not being in any form of print industry) to get to grips with this, wish these instructional / very helpful videos had been around then. thanks again CreativeLive & Daniel Gregory..

    This is a very good course, well-suited for both beginners and advanced intermediate photographers. It is very well organized. Daniel Gregory is well-informed and an excellent instructor. There's no fluff or wasted time in this course, just good solid instruction. Though I've got years of printing behind me, I learned a lot from this course and expect to view it again to pick up more of the fine points he addresses.
