Time: 1:00 PM - 6:00 PM

WITH Eric Joseph


Are you making the best prints possible on your Canon or Epson inkjet printer? Do your prints look like what is being displayed on your monitor? Do you really feel like you have control over your printing workflow? Making beautiful, gallery/exhibition quality inkjet prints isn’t easy or intuitive. If it was everyone would be doing it and doing it well. This two-part full day class provides a comprehensive overview of the six steps you need to consider when setting yourself up for success for making perfect inkjet prints.

A limited number of lucky participants will be selected to bring digital images; every participant will have an image printed by Eric on 13”x19” paper. If you are selected, bring a USB thumb drive with six images or less on it. We won’t have time to sort through image files. Images can be color or black & white.

Files need to be formatted with the following parameters:

  • Color Space = Adobe RGB (1998)
  • Size = 15 inches on the long side at 300 ppi
  • Bit Depth = If the file was originally a RAW file maintain 16 bit depth
  • File format = TIF
