The talk and workshop will give an overview of the entire workflow of fine art printing, from the image file to the final print. A brief theoretical introduction will cover the different color spaces and their handling by the SLR camera to image processing software such as Lightroom or Photoshop, while also paying attention to the calibration of the monitor used. In the workshop part of the talk, the installation and use of necessary ICC profiles will be demonstrated. There will also be a brief introduction to the software Mirage, a RIP and print solution. Finally, important print paper series and their features and differences are discussed and practically applied in using a EPSON SureColor P5000 printer with a selection of professional art print papers (Hahnemuehle).
