Two suggestions if it is not too late:
  • Discussion on printer driver settings. For example, say I hypothetically like a Canon paper and want to use it on Epson. There are no canned profiles and instructions for that combination from either manufacturer. I can create a profile for that paper. But how do I figure out the optimal settings in the driver in the first place?
  • Best practices (applicable for photographers) for reviewing prints. Determining color accuracy under artificial light, whether blacks are as black as they can possibly be (and how to fix that), whether the overall print is not too dark or light?

Pre-ordered. Loved The Digital Negative and found it a very fitting tribute to Adams' The Negative.

Hi Jeff,

I am looking for the book to be available in Germany as well, by now it is not announced, but it will...

There are two minor issues I would like to suggest, just in case you haven't planned to have them in the book anyway.

  • In chapter 1 "Picking a printer" some words on the capabilities of the built-in spectrophotometers of the LFP's compared to external ones like the i1Pro would be nice. What does it mean to the ICC-profile quality and finally the print. Would be helpful for deciding whether the additional costs for such a built-in tool are worth the money for him/her personally.
  • In chapter 2, when it comes to color spaces some information on the presentable colors/color spaces of computer displays compared to printers would be helpful. Which colors of the color spaces can a display display vs. what can printers print. Sure that also heavily depends i.e. on the papers used, but some words on what a printer is ideally capable to do compared to what we can ideally see on our displays.

Best regards

Thomas

Jeff,

I just reviewed two of your books in our local bookstore and I was very impressed.  I have been using LR4 and PS6 since they were introduced. At this time, I think I need to improve my knowledge of sharpening of landscape photos, both capture sharpening in Lightroom4 and output sharpening in PS6.  I mostly produce bluray videos with music, effects, etc. for viewing on my HDTV, but I will be looking to produce prints soon.  Given that Sharpening procedures in both programs is currently my focus, I was about to purchase Real World Image Sharpening....., 2nd edition instead of your Digital Negative book.  However, I noticed that a lot of the advice in RWIS involves the use of much earlier versions of my programs, and I know you have mentioned that you have modified your thoughts on some things since 2009, partly in light of the new Adobe versions. 

So, given my needs, might there be a later book of yours that would better suit me that the RWIS, second edition?

I ordered the Digital Negative it's on it's way .... the TOC for the Digital Print looks great. Can you put in an appendix regarding the basic way PS or LR needs to be set up out of the box, for beginners, so that the proper parameters are chosen? i.e. the bit depth, color workspace etc. so that the software is set up properly to work on the digital negative as well as the digital print that works in most cases (best practices or maybe how it is set up in your case and why). I am sure the info is covered in a distributed manner throughout the books but if it is consolidated at one place it would be of great help to beginners. If there are tips for beginners that are highlighted throughout the book that would be really useful. I look forward to the this book also.
Thanks.
Praki.

I would go for The Digital Neg and not the RWIS book...it's up to date and there likely won't be a 3rd edition of RWIS (I worked on the 2nd, Bruce wrote the first).

The way the two books are designed, The Digital Negative is how to take your original images and optimize them for your master RGB images. The Digital Print will show how to take those optimized images and prepare them for ideal printed output. Get the first book and read it (and understand it) and you'll be 1/2 the way...when you get the second book, you'll learn how to get the best print you can. But I won't be putting in an "appendix" per se...just an index.

Jeff,

That is what I decided too. 

A thought.  More people are finding that their photo's get more attention if displayed on an HDTV, especially if one can make a show of a photo trip.  Might it be applicable (and lucrative) to add a chapter to the new book to describe the steps to also go from Lightroom to Photoshop to a video production program like Proshow Gold, or just a slideshow using Photoshop, for display on an HDTV?

BTW, I am having a yellow shift issue between Lightroom4 and Photoshop6 on my photos.  Would you welcome a question about that within this thread?

Due April 2013...

Jeff, if I remember correctly this book is delayed due to changes associated with LR5 Print Module that you wanted to include in this book.   I see from Amazon that it is now set for release in August.   With the LR5 beta version out, and no known changes to the print module I suspect I mis-interpreted the reason for this delay.   Was I smoking something or is there an enhancement not yet released in LR5?

Well, there's another application involved called Photoshop...the next version has not been announced yet. Also, even though LR5's Print module hasn't changed, the overall application has. So, it was decided to push things back so I could get the new versions of LR & PS involved.
