November 17, 2008 | Comments Off on Ben Wilmore – Up To Speed CS4 Book |

“If you want to learn what’s new in CS4 and you want the most in-depth coverage of these features that you’ll find anywhere, then this book is a must. It covers every change made to Photoshop CS4 and nothing else … Also, if you’re on the fence about upgrading and really need to know if it would be worth it in your specific situation, then this book will allow you to assess exactly what you’d get by upgrading to CS4.”

16 Bit Printing

November 10, 2008 | Leave a Comment |

16 bit printing is finally possible. It wasn’t before? That’s right.

Only Photoshop CS4 / Lightroom 2 actually deliver all 16 bits to the printer.

Only OSX 10.5 allows this; not Windows yet.

And only the latest updated drivers.

What improvements can you expect to see? Smoother gradations. Slightly more precise edge rendition.  As printer dot structures get finer and more precise, expect to see more improvements. Higher quality digital capture (higher bit, lower noise, greater resolution) will also improve output.

Find CS4 and Lightroom here.
Find Epson drivers here.
