Converting to profile and sizing images

Please click on "Export"

In the box called "File Settings" please set the following:

Format: JPEG

Quality: 80%

Color Space: Fuji_DP2_ProAm.icm

Limit File Size To: DO NOT CHECK TICK BOX

In the box titled "Image Sizing" please set the following:

Resize to Fit is ticked

When you size images you can either go by "Long Edge" which is the length or you can use "Short Edge" which is the width

Set the "Resolution" to 402 pixel per inch

For Example:   To make an image 12" x 18" you would set the long edge to 18" and the resolution to
402 pixels per inch. If your crop is at the correct ratio this will change the short edge to 12" giving
you a 12" x 18" image.

 

Converting an image

To convert an image to our colour profile, follow the instructions below:

Photoshop CS2, CS3, CS4, CS5, CS6 or CC

Photoshop 7 or original CS

The image will be converted to the profile. Any changes will be saved with the image.

 

Troubleshooting

Customers using the Perceptual intent setting may experience an unwanted colour shift. We recommend the Relative Colorimetric setting for most images but especially for wedding and portrait work where skin tones are particularly important. The perceptual setting is mainly used where there is a dominant single colour.

Often monitors are not set up correctly for viewing photographic images. If the screen is too bright the prints will turn out too dark. As a starting point select 6500k ‘White Point’, 50% ‘Brightness’ but maximum ‘Contrast’. Your image initially may look too warm and dark as a result of you being used to looking at a cooler, brighter screen previously; but the resulting print should be the proper density.
