All New Epson Print Academy
Mastering the Art of the Print From the Pros
• Maximizing print quality with the Epson Stylus® Photo R2880
• Sneak Peek at new Epson UltraChrome HDR ink technology
"For a serious photographer, there's no point in spending time editing your photos if you can't be assured of showcasing the results with the highest possible quality," said Kevin Connor, vice president of product management for Professional Digital Imaging at Adobe. "We are happy to be collaborating with Epson and this talented group of photographers on the development of the Epson Print Academy curriculum so that photographers get the most out of the enhanced workflows in Photoshop Lightroom 2 and Photoshop CS4, as well as Epson's latest technology, to produce incredible prints."
In addition, both tracks include admission to an expo area featuring a gallery of images created with new Epson UltraChrome HDR ink technology featured on the Epson Stylus Pro 7900 and 9900. Setting a new standard for professional-level ink jet quality, Epson UltraChrome HDR ink technology is based on Epson's unique high-density pigment chemistry. It offers all-new orange and green inks, and combined with new screening and printing technologies in Epson's newest printers, Epson UltraChrome HDR ink technology delivers the industry's widest color gamut and superior black density. The result is greatly enhanced photographic print quality with exceptionally fine photographic blends and transitions and highly accurate highlight-to-shadow detail.
The Print Academy Expo will also feature a product demo area where experts from Epson and partnering companies will be on-hand to answer questions and demonstrate products. Sponsors include: Adobe Systems Incorporated, Bogen Imaging, Eizo Nanao Corporation, Lexar Media, Inc., Light Impressions, Microsoft Corp., National Association of Photoshop Professionals, Nik Software, onOne Software, Profoto, Solux, Wacom Technology, and X-Rite.
