Thank you for your reply. Can I impose upon you to provide the where the clear "plastic" cover was purchased from? I recall Jeff saying that you don't want to purchase too much in advance because the longer it is stored, the more difficult it is to separate the protective paper from plastic cover.
These questions complete the missing product information.
Because I wanted to learn how to soft proof my photos, I found the videos helpful. The one additional piece of information that I would have benefitted from is knowing how to prepare my files for an off-site printer. That is, if I want to send my file to ABC Printing Co, and I have their icc files for their printers and papers, how do I send my files to them. I learned that the soft proofing process as described in the videos is applicable. Once the soft proof has been generated, then I need to do the following:
- Once satisfied with the soft proof, I need to convert my "print" image into the .icc colorspace for the off-site printer. So that's Edit | Convert to Profile, and I should use the same rendering intent as I did in creating the soft proof.
- Save file and send to printer.
I mention this information in case others were curious how to send their files to an off site printer.
