@dillonk Cool, thanks for the detailed answer. I didn't know there was that kind of profile for every type of paper so that printing would work out well, but that assures me that I can get it printed how I'd like.
@timeturnerjones Yes, if you really want to be an expert in printing you can get pictures from computer screen to physical paper with no changes at all. It's a really satisfying feeling to me, but I understand how that would be SO boring for someone else to learn :)
@timeturnerjones I also must add that I am much more sensitive to the smallest changes that most people wouldn't notice or care about. I'm pretty obsessive about that stuff.
@dillonk hahahhaa well I guess, as they say, obsession can make an expert, right? It's good to learn all the details then!
this is so cool @dillonk! my mom used to be in printing and I've read her old like color theory books and stuff but this helps explain it a lot. it's also really useful for school projects, I never understood the difference before with photoshop. you mentioned a tutorial on papers (ICC profile?) did you do one?
