Chapter 9. Hardcopies Made Easy >  Color Prints as Proofs

Color Prints as Proofs

Most of the time, your color prints will be your finished product, whether your intent is to display the print in a frame or pass it around among friends and colleagues. A print is a typical end product for most amateur and professional photographers. If the print looks good to you, that’s usually enough. You may need to work with Photoshop’s color correction tools or your computer’s color management system (as outlined in Chapter 6) so that producing pleasing color prints is fast and easy.

NOTE

PROOFS VS. PROOFS

The word “proofs” has a dual meaning in photography. Portrait and wedding photographers create proof prints that are used by clients to select their final images. Today, it’s more common to display proofs using a projection system or digital viewing system in the actual finished size of the print, but hard copy proofs are still used for this purpose by some photographers. A second kind of proof, discussed in this section, is a print used to judge the color balance and quality of an image as it will appear when printed.
