Unit 210. Principles of photo imaging output

To print my images, I used the website DS Colour labs as this website produced professional quality results. Prior to uploading to the website, I edited each image to give me the result that I wished, I then followed the online instructions to colour profile each image, this was to make sure the colours were printed correctly. Each image was also changed to have 300 dpi which is the standard for JPEG.

There were a range of different papers to choose from including Glossy, Lustre, Pearl and many fine art papers. I decided to choose glossy as this would give my photographs a nice shine. The only downside to this is that the photo can be quite reflective, it can also show up any finger prints and dirt marks. Cost was also a consideration and choosing the glossy paper was an affordable option.

There were many benefits of sending my images to a professional to be printed, these included not having to purchase ink, paper or a printer. I did not have to worry about the quality of the images produced as they would have been printed using equipment that I would not be able to afford. I didn't have to worry about technical issues such as paper jams and running out of ink which may have been a problem if I was to print the images myself.

As I sent away for my images to be printed, I did not have to worry about health and safety considerations such as using electrical equipment and breathing in ink dust.

I do not believe that the images I produced had any legal or ethical considerations attached to them, the images were not violent or graphic in nature and were not of subject people would find offensive.
