A few easy tips to help make printed prints look better!

So I have a few simple basic tips for printing prints either on your home printer or sending them out.

In whatever image retouching program you have there should be a Info area where you can see the %’s of the tones of the image – with 0% being white and 100% being black.

You want to keep highlights you care about over 5% - since under that and you run a big risk of them blowing out.

You want to keep things you don’t want totally black under 90%, since anything over that runs the risk of getting really muddy.
