Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Having read the last book, The Digital Negative, I felt compelled to purchase this next book and I have not been disappointed. Jeff writes with the experience and knowledge from a life time of photography. The information is explained in a very down to earth, matter of fact, common sense way. The book is worth getting just for Chapter 5 it self, Attributes Of A Perfect Print. There's knowledge in this chapter you'd be hard pressed to find anywhere else, or take days to find and its all here in this one chapter.
The only gripe I do have is, I feel, is his unfair criticism of printing from Photoshop, over emphasising how time consuming it is making sure all those boxes are ticked correctly. When I have a print ready, I apply a Pixel Genius Output Sharpener, open the print dialogue make sure all the settings are correct and print, it only takes a few seconds. A man of Jeff's talent would whizz through this seconds. I think there's some subtle manipulation going on here to slowly persuade us to eventually move over to Lightroom, but I'm very happy with Photoshop, its more hands on. Anyway, apart from that, this is a highly informative book that everybody who has any interest in quality printing should buy. If you got this then you should buy the last one and if you got the last one you must buy this one, you'll never know what you're missing!
In fact if you have these 2 books and buy Martin Evenings new book, Adobe Photoshop CC For Photographers, or if you are into Lightroom his new Lightroom 5 book or both, these are all the books you'll ever need for still photography.

Jeff Schewe is incredibly knowledgable about processing images, and not only provides guides/tips for maximising image quality, but also technical info on the way LR/Photoshop/Printers work so you understand why things turn out the way they do. Highly recommended to anyone who is interested in printing their own images, or send images to be printed.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I bought this because I have always struggled with both the theory and practice of printing. Schewe is one of the gurus, so I thought this and the sister volume on processing would be helpful. They are - up to a point. The text is so-so, but the illustrations are so small and badly reproduced as to be useless. They are absolutely essential to understanding. I tried using a torch, then a magnifying glass to see the points being made about the images, then I gave up. In a way it is quite amusing that a text on images is totally deficient in this respect, but at £30 for the two I'm not laughing too heartily.

This is one of the best books I've read about the technical stuff of photography. It includes some theory and also technics that will help you to achieve better results and understand why.

Requires concentration to get the best out of it. It is well written - provides excellent explanations and has helped my understanding of colour.

By CraigM on 7 Mar 2014
Format: Paperback
OK, the bit about colour management is a bit heavy but this book is truly outcome focussed and is not the usual "look how clever I am at using this software" kind of book. If your interest is understanding how to produce great quality prints from excellent digtal images using Photoshop or Lightroom (or both!) then this is for you. The Digital Negative explains how to get the absolute best out of any good digital image and this explains how to produce fantastic prints. You will, of course, need a professional printer or know someone with one. The book covers printing with both Epson & Canon printers from the 'enthusiast' models such as the Canon Pro-100 upwards. However much of the content is not specific to any printer and the principles could be used with any high quality photo printer from HP and so on. A truly excellent book.
