My main job duties have me focusing on color correcting all of our digital image files from scans of original artwork. I thought I’d give you a short screencast showing you what is involved when color correcting in the Imaging Department. Using Adobe Photoshop I am able to “fix” overall or select areas of the image that the scan did not capture perfectly. It’s important to us here at Gallery Direct that we offer our art-loving customers limited edition prints that pretty much look exactly like the original artwork. In the above photo you will see the original series of artwork (larger paintings) with my paper printed proofs next to them.
Once I made those layer changes, I print out some paper proofs to see how they look in comparison to the originals.
Do anymore areas need a little more tweaking? Take a look closer…
It’s not perfect yet, back to working on the adjustment layers until it’s just right!
