Just heard of this site off of the This Week In Photo podcast, glad I started listening, I am very impressed!
I've finally gotten rid of my darkroom and almost all my film cameras (I held on to my 1967 Rolleiflex Twin Lens Reflex F3.5 Model 3). I am real happy using my Canon 5D with Aperture, and Nik Software suite for my editing work in aperture. All is perfect except one thing…
When I used to print my images, I walked into my darkroom and did my work. Now everything is on the computer but I need to get things printed professionally so I can produce the same quality images I used to produce, and then mount them etc…
So my question is:
What are the tricks in aperture I need to be aware of to properly generate images for printing? I know this can be a wide subject but surely there are some top 5 tips somewhere I can peek at? :)
Is there a site that folks rely on for high quality printing? I don't really care about the cost, I just want it done right. If so, what kind of format do I need to be producing from Aperture to get the images to them properly and expect the right results. I'm looking to print on matt paper in sizes as large as 16x20 (I almost never go up higher, plus with cropping something tells me I won't be able to go that big with the 5D - I do understand the principles behind digital photography)
Thanks very much.
