In part 1 of our quest to find the best place for digital photo printing I took an image, prepared it for printing in Photoshop and sent it to the two professional photo printers I use and two high street labs to see which was best.
In Best Digital Photo Printing PT.2 http://www.photographycourses.biz/best_digital_photo_printing_2.html the prints are back and it’s time to see which is best. And I was surprised by the results.
When you compare prints with your monitor make sure the monitor’s calibrated and that you’re looking at the print in daylight – NOT under ordinary household bulbs which are yellow. If you’re looking at a print and the light source has a colour cast it will do the same to the prints and a comparison becomes invalid.
