Display Your Photos Right

Though discussions about photography in magazines, classrooms, message boards and camera clubs often focus on the latest photographic equipment or the hottest Photoshop tip, in the end, it really comes down to one simple thing: the print. It's nice to share an image via e-mail or by allowing a friend to look over your shoulder at the camera's LCD, but there's no better way of sharing your unique vision of the world than by reproducing it on paper.

Color Spaces & Printer Profiles Revealed

When I visited the Crayola Factory in Easton, Pa., with my five-year-old daughter, I had an epiphany about color space. Back when I was in kindergarten, crayons came in boxes of eight colors. Nowadays, 64 colors is average. I knew all that, but what I didn't realize was that Binney & Smith (Crayola) makes hundreds of different colors. The typical set includes all of the hues kids need to make refrigerator-ready artwork. But it's possible to assemble a 64-piece set that includes some colors that aren't found in the standard box. And that's where color space comes in.
