Professional-quality scans don't just happen with a click of your mouse or the push of a button. How you scan depends on whether you'll use the image in offset printing, the Web, a PDF document, on an InkJet printer-or all four! To get great-looking images, you need to know which resolution settings to use, as well as how to adjust contrast, sharpening, compression, and more. Beyond these basics, for highly accurate color, you should know how to use color profiles and color spaces, and how to adjust your scan at the preview stage. Finally, to avoid wasting time rescanning your originals, you should know how to make one master scan to reuse for each kind of output.
Real World Scanning & Halftones, Third Edition, written by some of the most highly regarded names in digital imaging, will show you how to start with a great scan and make it even better, whether you're a graphics professional or a novice with high standards. You'll learn how to streamline your work and produce consistent scans for many forms of output. See why this book has enlightened thousands of users for over a decade!
