Thread: D.I. artist

    as an art, DI, and the ability to do it, is open to each person's own opinion... obvious differences in ability are of course obvious, but for those who are really good, there is no telling who is better...

    Well, I would be glad to send you some pics to work on... but since u posted this few months ago, can you PM me if you still want pics?

    Btw, what software do most commercial DI Artists use? Is it Photoshop?
    The best photographer is one who is inspired by the innate nature of his subjects.

    Apart from what firestone has listed another important thing is a strong understanding of colour management for CMYK printing. I would like to find a DI artist who is really anal about every single colour...

    there are

    on the other hand, I have met many printers who aren't very concerned with colour management...

    printers are usually not very concern until you make your requirements known to them and expect them to follow thru. Most will grumble but they will try to fulfill neverthelss.

    Btw anyone answered the question . - what software is use for DI?
    I am keen to know as well. =)

    they might adjust the print that comes out but I don't know if some of the curmudgeons out there would actually really colour manage... its some extra work for them to profile monitors and, even worse, profile printers... and if we are talking about offset prints ... once I spent half a day getting the printers to adjust the colour from printout to screen, from printout to screen... and that was after waiting for their proofing printer to get fixed

    yes maybe I have been too harsh on the DI artist...
    my agent is preparing a promo right now (cmyk) and she gets 2-3 proofs to get the colour perfect, over in singapore the printer just tells me "it's about 90% accurate" and then proceeds to provide me magenta skinned people in my pictures.

    Heh heh....that's why over here you gotta push them and tell them to let u approve the proof before they print en-masse.

    no, I'm sure there are DI people who have "trouble" with colour... just have to jaga them abit... sometimes its an honest mistake though...

    that magenta is the 10% coming to bite you in the rear end... insist they do a reprint at their expense... like Witness said, where possible approve the colours before they run the actual print...

    so why do you work with those printers?

    Can you recommend some good printers, I actually think it'll be a good thread to have in this forum, as a resource.
