How to prepare a file

PREPARING A FILE FOR PRINTING

1. Calibrating the monitor – working on a monitor prepared for computer processing 90% guarantees that the image view will match the exposure. In our laboratory we work on profiled equipment, and our monitors are calibrated according to ISO standard 15076-1:2005.

2. Converting the image to RGB mode, 8 or 16 bits per channel. Black & white images should be prepared in greyscale.

3. Use of the ICC profile of the selected paper.*

4. Size: the file should be prepared in the final size – 1:1 scale.

5. Resolution: minimum 360 dpi**

6. Format: TIFF (may be with LZW compression) or JPEG (compression: maximum quality).

7. File name: number_surname_forename_printFormatINmm e.g. 005_kowalski_adam_297x420

8. Files can be delivered to us in person, sent by email or saved on our FTP server (you will find the server address in the Contact tab). Please contact us to provide details and confirm your order.

 

* We can make the ICC profile available on request. In case of prints made on Epson, giving the ICC profile only concerns colour photographs; black & white photos do not require the application of profiles but should be saved in greyscale.

Installation of ICC profile:

After saving an ICC profile on your computer you should point your cursor at it and right-click.
Select the command "Install profile".
The profile will now be installed on your computer.
If Photoshop was open, you should restart it and give the selected profile.

ATTENTION! It is recommended that most of the work connected with computer processing of photography be conducted on files in a standard colour scheme (sRGB or Adobe RGB), and in order to view the accordance of the image displayed on the monitor with the exposure use the Soft Proofing option with the final ICC profile.
The ICC profile should be given in the last phase of processing, and a spare copy should be made before saving the file in the standard scheme. Should you have any doubt over giving an ICC profile, please deliver the file in a standard colour scheme (sRGB or Adobe RGB).

 

** If you are in any doubt, please do not enlarge or decrease the resolution of the files, so that the lab technician can view their true usable resolution. The greater the source resolution of the file, the greater the enlargement that we are able to produce while preserving a high image quality (e.g. from a 3700 x 5600 pixel matrix we can make a good-quality 100 x 70 cm enlargement, and from a 2300 x 3500 pixel matrix we can make a 30 x 45 cm format).
