Lesson 1. Preparing Images for Print or the Web > Preparing an image for print

Preparing an image for print

Monitor calibration and accurate proofing are key to quality print reproduction. If you have produced printed material from digital images, you know that a monitor can display colors very differently than do inks on paper. Save yourself the frustration of experiencing this on press by calibrating and proofing your artwork before printing final film.

To ensure that your printed image will look like the one you’ve spent weeks composing and editing on your monitor, be sure to set up a color-managed workflow. See Lesson 3, “Color Management and Distribution,” for instructions. For more information, also see Chapter 4 in the Photoshop 6.0 User Guide or “Producing Consistent Color (Photoshop)” in Photoshop 6.0 online Help.
