Printing Digital Images

Light Meter by Lisa K. Berton


After seeing a woman print photos in a local drug store today and suggesting she go to a camera store instead, I decided it was time to put this subject back into the spotlight. Hence, I am re-posting with minimal editing, a blog from 2009. I am a huge advocate for camera stores and spent 7 years working for Ritz Camera. In the past 4-5 years, over 800 chain camera stores have closed as well as countless privately-owned shops. The age of digital photography has killed jobs and put Kodak almost entirely out of business, a business they created. For the love of documenting your world for future generations (not to mention quality), put down the cell phone, pick up a camera and print your pictures.

Home Printers

Laser Printers

Laser printers are designed to print text, charts, and graphs. They are not to be used for printing photographs.

Inkjet Printers

Inkjets are by far the most popular of home printers. They print quickly, are inexpensive, and may include other features such as copying and faxing. Inkjets emit droplets of ink onto photo paper using ink cartridges. Prints often come out damp and need to dry before they can be handled. Ink can and will smudge and prints are ruined by liquid and long exposures to heat and light.

Ink tanks vary by printer. The best color reproduction comes from having individual color cartridges. Photo paper designed for inkjets range in paper weight, surface, and size.

Printers can be purchased in office supply stores, wholesale warehouses, camera shops, and computer/electronic stores.

Dye-sublimation Printers

Dye subs, as they are commonly referred to, are quite different than laser and inkjet printers in that they heat up the photographic paper and colors are released as a gas. The papers have a laminate-like coating which when heated lock in the dye, making the photograph less susceptible to fading and also water-resisitant.

Dyes and papers are sold as a kit and state exactly how many prints it'll produce.

You'll find high-end dye-sublimation machines for customer use in drug stores and camera shops as they are faster alternatives to mini lab printing. Smaller printers for personal use are sold in office supply stores, camera shops, and by computer/electronic retailers.


Minilabs

Traditional photofinishing labs offer the highest quality print possible. Maintenance is extremely important in regards to how well these multi million dollar machines operate. Manual color and contrast corrections can make nearly any image better or worse, depending upon who is printing - a person or auto pilot.

Minilabs print digital images by using a laser which exposes the photo paper which is then run through a series of chemicals to develop the image. This process is extremely similar to how negatives are printed. Those family photos you have from generations ago have lasted so long because of how they were printed.


Conclusion:

1. Print your photos. Computers crash, CDs are being replaced by DVDs for storage, and memory cards can become corrupt but prints are highly visible and easy to obtain.

2. Nothing compares to the quality of a minilab other than a professional lab that does custom printing.

3. It's actually cheaper to print your photos in a minilab than it is at home.

Trekking through Disney's Animal Kingdom

Photographic Innoventions by Scott Thomas

I have written about and shared many photographs from Disney's Animal Kingdom attractions: Kilimanjaro Safari and Pangani Forest Exploration Trail. Both can be found by visiting the village of Harambe in Africa. I have even taken you on the Wild Africa Trek: Photographing on the Wild Africa Trek, Part I and Part II.

Today, I want to share with you a few more photos from those experiences.

I see many people walking quickly on the Pangani Forest Exploration Trail. Time can be one's master at Disney's Animal Kingdom with so much to do and see. If one can, I suggest stopping along the trail to enjoy the animals. The Okapi (Okapia johnstoni) are an animal you need to observe. Watch how they use their tongues to eat and notice their neck in how it moves. Do not be fooled by the zebra-like stripes as the giraffe is their closest relative on the evolutionary tree.

To get a good photo of one of the okapi, you have to wait a bit as they move around looking for food in their habitat. Imagine trying to spot an okapi in the lush jungle of its native home in the Congo of Africa. It is no wonder it was not discovered by European adventurers until the late 19th century.

The Gerenuk (Litocranius walleri), long-necked species of antelope, browse behind the Meerkats on the Pangani Forest Exploration Trail. However, to get this view of one, you have to be on the Wild Africa Trek's overland trail which goes off into the woods to the side of the Meerkat compound. The Gerenuk was curious as to who was roaming his woods.

While large bellied and cumbersome looking, Hippopotamus (Hippopotamus amphibius) are the most dangerous large animal in Africa. Hippos are very aggressive towards humans, whom they commonly attack whether in boats or on land for no apparent reason. Which is why I was happy to photograph this female Hippopotamus from a safe and raised distance while on the Wild Africa Trek.

Animal parks like Disney's Animal Kingdom educate and inspire people to help save these creatures in their native lands. I hope my photography helps in the same way.

Disney Pic of the Week: Food

Photographic Innoventions by Scott Thomas

When people are planning a Disney vacation, they concentrate on where they are going to stay, which parks to visit and when and what to eat. That last one is the reason the All Ears Menu Section is so popular. I remember sending restaurant menus to my youngest daughter to see if she approved. The next best thing was finding photos of the meals online.

Photographing food at Disney is very popular judging by the Tweets and FaceBook postings I see daily. I know it is something Lisa and I do on every trip and in (almost) every restaurant. So, this week, that is our subject: Food. Like these sweet treats I found at the Trail's End Restaurant Buffet in Disney's Fort Wilderness Campground & Resort for breakfast.

How to Find Photo Labs

Light Meter by Lisa K. Berton

Last week I re-posted a blog about Printing Digital Images and got some awesome feedback. Several of you wrote in asking where to find mini labs in your area and I answered those letters privately.

Next week I'll delve into online print services but for now I have suggestions on how and where to find mini labs and pro labs for those who are ready.

I have recently discovered Yelp.com when seeking out record stores that carry actual records. They're also quite good at finding other businesses. Let's say you live in Dallas, TX then these would be the search results for photo labs in the area. Forget the box stores and drug stores, you want the actual camera stores and/or quality photo labs.

Use a search engine like Google or Yahoo for photography clubs in your area. Contact them and ask if they can suggest a mini lab for printing. Another place to call is the local photography or art school. Students should print their own photos on-site but they'll also know where the trustworthy photo labs are located.

Fujifilm has an extensive list of professional labs that use their paper. A pro lab will require you to set up an account and is ideal for those who make their living as photographers but even if they aren't able to do business with you, they too can point you in the right direction.

If you're wondering why you should choose a mini lab, allow me to explain. A mini lab should be a wet lab. This means the photographic paper is processed like the image came from film even if it is digital. The photographic paper goes through a series of chemicals. When high quality professional grade photo paper like Fujifilm Crystal Archival and photo chemicals marry, you make prints that will last for close to 100 years. Those old, old, old family photos are still preserved to this day because of photo chemicals. A dry lab which uses ink or dye sublimation could last up to 20 years. That's a huge difference.

Class dismissed.

The photo you see here is a scanned image from an old 4x6 inch photo I took the last time I visited Disneyland in 1987. I hear it has changed a bit since then.

Next week, I will be going back to California and rediscovering Disneyland as well as discovering Disney's California Adventure. Is there any attraction, restaurant, hotel, show or area you would like to request for me to take a photo of? Anything you have tried to photograph there in the past but was never satisfied with your results? Leave me a note in the Comments (see link at bottom of this post) and I will do my best to get if for you. If you do not want the comment posted, let me know and I will take your suggestion with me.

While I am traveling, you can follow @Scottwdw on Twitter for my photos and comments about Disneyland.

Disney Pic of the Week - Lighting Fixtures

Light Meter by Lisa K. Berton

Over the years, my fellow Picture This! bloggers and I have tried to cover everything possible as topics for our Disney Pic of the Week. Sometimes you can guess who came up with the theme. For instance, Hunks was my idea and it was vetoed so I went with Princes or Heroes. Then there's Star Wars Weekends, 5 times a year because Scott wants to be a Jedi Master. I see you scratching your heads wondering who came up with lighting fixtures as a topic. I did. I watch a lot of HGTV and I've been picking out everything from ceiling fans to bedroom doors to shower heads for my future home. Enjoy the "light show". Perhaps you'll get some bright ideas of your own.

Ordering Prints Online

Light Meter by Lisa K. Berton

We meet again in this third installment in a non-intended series on photos labs. I started two weeks ago by re-posting an entry on the differences between printing at home and at mini labs. The great response I received pushed me to write again, only this time about where and how to locate mini labs in your area. Finally, I'll take a quick look at online and mail order options. I still stand by my statement that you should always use a mini or if possible, a professional photo lab for printing. The quality is untouchable by any other format.

I contacted three companies who offer printing via digital image uploads to their websites. See for yourselves what they had to say.

Shutterfly
Finding information on their website with regard to how they print came up short. I wrote to customer service and asked, How are photos printed? This is the response I received.

"Shutterfly uses state-of-the-art digital printers designed for professional photo finishers. These printers use a silver halide chemical process, such as is found in traditional photo labs. These printers, combined with Shutterfly's proprietary imaging technology result in the best possible prints from your digital camera.

Additionally, Shutterfly uses Fuji Crystal Archive paper, which has been rated to have not only superior color, but to be the most durable photographic paper available. For more information on Fuji paper, type Fuji into the enter keyword search field on Shutterfly. Shutterfly also uses digital off-set presses to print on archival-quality paper which is acid-free to ensure your pictures will look great for years to come."

I wrote back and asked, When or for what specifically do you use the digital off-set presses for?

They said, "We would like to inform that Shutterfly uses the digital off-set presses for all paper printing products. For example, prints, photo books and cards. "

As you can see, there's a contradiction. First they say they use a silver halide chemical process (exactly what we want) followed by saying they use a digital off-set press (what we do not want) for prints. How do you know which machine they're going to use to print 4x6" or larger? Photo books come out of an off-set printer and have for years. What we're interested in are prints.


Clark Color

Yes, the mail-order photo lab is still kickin'. They will process your 35mm color rolls of film and they have a website for online digital image orders. Their website says, "Our prints and posters are printed on high-quality, long-lasting paper that resists fading for generations. We know silver halide prints provide the best quality image and our prints deliver vivid color reproduction, more natural skin tones, exceptional sharpness and unsurpassed color stability."

I wrote to them and asked, Could you please tell me what process your company uses to print digital images ordered from your website, specifically 4x6's? Is it a wet lab or dry lab?

They responded, "Thank you for contacting Clark Color.

We do use chemicals for processing along with silver halide light sensitive paper.

If we can be of any further assistance please do not hesitate to contact us."


Ritz Camera

First of all, my jaw hit the floor when I saw they still have a very small number of brick and mortar stores. Long story short, I was laid off from Ritz Camera in 2009 after they filed Chapter 11. These stores and the website are no longer owned by David Ritz or any company he was a part of however the company who bought him out is still able to keep the various company and store names.

As with the previous online order labs, I wrote to RitzPix. I asked, Could you please tell me if 4x6 digital images ordered through the website are always printed through a wet lab? I know the stores used to use Fuji Frontier machines. Do you still use those?

"The 4x6 prints that we do thru our main processing lab is done thru a "wet" system. Our lab currently uses Fuji Frontier equipment for printing (for) our standard size prints up to 8x12 size.

I had a thought I would post from Disneyland this week. I quickly decided to call in a friend, Michael Greening (aka Ring of Fire Hot Sauce 1 on flickr), to pitch hit for me as I wanted to feature something from Disney's California Adventure. Finding time on the road for photo processing can be tough. Besides, didn't Michael do a wonderful job on his photo?

The Red Car Trolleys of Buena Vista Street are perfect. Not only do they bring back memories of Who Framed Roger Rabbit but also of the time Walt Disney first came to Los Angeles. This is where I will be tomorrow for the AllEars.net Picture This! Disney's California Adventure Photowalk. Will you be there?

To all who come to this photo trivia game, Welcome! Along the way, the photos can make us relive memories and see details Walt's Imagineers put into everything we love in Walt Disney World!

Brock and Anka, your good friend Les Stewart wants to wish you a Magical Vacation! What a wonderful friend! (You should bring him back something. Just my 2 cents.)
Ashley P. and Linda Ranatza are also on their way to Walt Disney World! Ashley, you should look for Linda's Scooter Patrol because you always want to be with the cool kids! Darn, I wish I was going with all you guys! Oh, look! The Scooter Patrol!

Like you said, Christi Ison, if I have to take a fall, let it be in Disney. Could it would still be a good day!

Sarah Thomas, what a lovely note! I'm the Monday morning tradition at your office! That is sooooo awesome! To you, Judy Simonsen, Linda Ranatza, and everyone else who sent such amazing notes, thank you!
From Millan.Net

Tom Buck, I miss the old skyride too! What a great view, wasn't it? And you could get such great photos up there. The last time I rode it, it was sunset so I did a video of the whole thing.... Cinderella Castle and Fantasyland at sunset. Happy sigh. (It also helped save the sore feet!)

The Hoekzema Family, I love the summer too! I have a convertible; come over and we'll head for the beach!

From last week: Challenge #297:
 Where in the World #297

And here's the answer:
Where in the World Photo Fun
Copyright © 2013 Erin Blackwell

So many of you not only knew what this was, but it's original name. So, Kathy Rubin, please represent your fellow Players with the answer: The attraction was known as Cinderella's Golden Carrousel until June 2010 when the name was changed to Prince Charming Regal Carrousel to better fit with the plans for New Fantasyland. Or, as Robert Wescovich calls it, Cindy's Carousel because he and Cinderella are close friends.

Alan Mize adds this interesting tidbit: " I love that Disney chose to spell it as carrousel instead of carousel since that is the original spelling. "

Timothy Hutchinson also mentioned: "I believe this is the oldest attraction in Fantasyland as I believe it was actually built in 1917 for Olympic Park in NJ." You are right! It originally was named The Liberty Carrousel and was built in 1917 for the Belle Isle Park in Detroit by the Philadelphia Toboggan Co. It's one of the largest of its kind in the world. Walt Disney and his Imagineers discovered it in 1967 at Olympic Park in New Jersey. They bought it and performed an extensive renovation for the Magic Kingdom where it's been a favorite ever since!

Lots of us ride it at all ages from the little kids to the kids of 19, 42, and 65 & above! Clay Anthony, you're a good man, racing to THE horse for your favorite girl. :)

Bill Mckim would like to rub it in that he was in the Magic Kingdom the other day. Gee, thanks, Bill. :) OK, he didn't actually say that, I'm just teasing. Up high, Bill!

A Little Time Off

Light Meter by Lisa K. Berton

Dear Readers,

I am taking some time off from writing my weekly blog, Light Meter. Presently, I am juggling working full-time, going to school part-time, conducting regular online auctions, and organizing some family projects.

I plan to return in November with my weekly entries. In the meantime, I will continue to provide my half of Disney Pic of the Week.

Thanks for your support.

Sincerely,
Lisa

Where in the World #299

Where in the World by Erin Blackwell

To all who come to this photo trivia game, Welcome! Along the way, the photos can make us relive memories and see details Walt's Imagineers put into everything we love in Walt Disney World!

Rob And April Vanderpool, thank you for your note!

Patti Mccaffrey, oh no! I hope you're feeling better!

 Where in the World #298

And here's the answer:
Where in the World Photo Fun
Copyright © 2013 Erin Blackwell

This is one of the phone boxes in the UK Pavilion in Epcot! Can you believe I didn't know you can CALL them?! One Player thinks the numbers have been disconnected; I'll try to find out. OR! If one of you who is in the World could find out and report back, we'd be grateful!

You Players are impressive! You used the hinges, reflections in the windows, and more to pinpoint where this one was. Wow!

I read an article saying some communities in the UK are converting these to free small libraries where you "Take A Book, Leave a Book" since public phones aren't needed with mobiles. Good for you!

In the UK pavilion, one of them has been converted for the Agent P adventures; if you haven't tried this yet, this pavilion has a great one. And the others are great photo ops and for pretending to call places like the Ministry of Magic.

I have the Mickey t-shirt where he's using one of these phone boxes. Love it. :)

As for me, Stacy Lee and John Bickers, we keep hoping this will show up:
