Strawberry Bird and Printing of Art Work

This was inspired by collage using fabric. I find that fabric collage is very interesting and beautiful.

I wonder if any of you have problem to print art work. I have some problem that the picture printed out is not the same as what you see in the monitor.

There are tones of information as how to set this correct such as to calibrating your monitor and printer in order to get it right. Also you need to figure out how Photoshop manage the color and printing process.

The following are the summaries of what I did.

[1]. You need to calibrating your monitor well. Go to display of your computer and set properly your monitor Gamma, contrast and light values.
[2]. In Photoshop, use "Proof Setup" to pre-view your print out result in your printer. You can adjust colors accordingly if it is not what you want.
[3]. Turn off your color management in your printer. Let Photoshop control the color translating from your PC to the printer.

Hope this helps if you have similar problem.

This is a really pretty piece, Lily!
Thank you for those printing tips. I didn't know about the 2nd one nor third. Yes, it can be difficult to print out artwork, and have the colors represented correctly.

Lily - I really like your paintings. To be honest, I really liked the title "Sunflower & Pears" as well as the painting itself. The words just make me happy! (I also like your name - we have a cat here at our photo lab/studio named Lily & she's a sweetie!) I was also glad to read that someone else has issues re: colors not appearing correctly on their blog. Like I said, I'm in the photo business & work with Photoshop all day, and I STILL have problems. When I upload to blogspot it automatically makes the photo more blue. I overcorrect for that in Photoshop, but sometimes it's impossible to get there.

ANYWAY, it's nice to see your stuff. It's too bad you can't make it to the Olympics - that would've been so much fun!
