1.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing Jan. 7 2012
By Tyeve
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I was hoping for a lot more advice and technical details. Far too much of the book is spent on what makes a good photo and, only incidentally, a good photo for printing. That's fine, but that topic is covered far better in many other books. When it come to actual printing this book contains not much more that the printer manuals. I have a hard time understanding who this book is aimed at. My advice is to stick to the manual or, better yet, get a book like Martin Evening's Adobe Photoshop CS4 for Photographers, which covers printing in much greater detail.

4.0 out of 5 stars very nice, but... Sept. 10 2008
By David Wilson - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is a beautiful book, very nicely done. But, having already read quite a bit about color management and inkjet printing, I was hoping for more specific technical details. The author makes many statements which I'm sure are true (I do believe he knows what he's talking about), but aren't illustrated with examples. For example, he says 200 to 360 ppi is the ideal range when sizing an image for printing, and that going over 360 can actually be detrimental. Ok -- how about an example to show exactly what the effect would be? Yes, I can spend the time (and cost) to run my own tests to see, but the book should have done that for me.

2.0 out of 5 stars FAR from a "complete" guide Aug. 18 2011
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I agree with several of the other reviewers - this book is well done but the title is misleading. In my opinion a >complete< guide to Epson should take you through the >complete< process of color digital printing on Epson printers and be littered with actual examples, good and bad, of all the resolution, ink type, paper type, printer model and color management option combinations that produce a digital color print. My copy is going back.

1.0 out of 5 stars Complete Crap - Save Your Money Dec 4 2010
By Gregory S. Burns - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I thought that having Epson's name on the front cover meant this would be a fairly credible book on printing techniques. Guess again. It's filled with many beautiful photos, some better than others, but most have absolutely nothing to do with the text or have any instructional value. They're obviously used simply as pretty space filler. Virtually all space that does have text is devoted to redundant platitudes and generalities, and if you try and suffer through the entire book (as I did) you'll find yourself getting madder and madder that there's no substance to it at all. Even if you wait to the very end. Shame on Epson for having their name on the front cover.

3.0 out of 5 stars Basic information - no step by step logic. Feb. 9 2012
By Thomas Ferris - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book had little useful information. The first four or so chapters tell you to start with a good digital image. Well no kidding. There is limited info on managing color profiles, how to set up printing, how to decide between printer managing color or managing from photo editing software, etc. from a logical step by step approach. Good for the beginner but not if you want to set up a true light room and get exhibition quality prints.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love this book. Oct. 19 2009
By Gerald R. Olson - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I have purchased many books on how to take a good digital photograph and have always been frustrated by the quality of the final printed photograph. ( I have even purchased different printers in an attempt to get the quality I want.) I have tried to find information on the process of connecting photoshop very tightly with the printer. This book has done that for me. I can now print a very good photograph. The information found in this book is not readily available even online. I will say that if you truly want to print a good photograph buy this book. It has definitely made my photography experience better, way better.
