Dr. Anthony Kaye ASIS FRPS: A Survey of Print Making Laboratories

Joint RPS/University of Leeds Project

In the early days of “digital” there was considerable uncertainty as to how your prints would come out if you uploaded them to a laboratory offering print fulfilment services. This was due to many of the laboratories not operating with colour managed work flows. Now digital capture is commonplace for both consumers and professional photographers, and colour management is better understood. Thus the opportunity was taken to survey a number of laboratories to see the current “state of play” with regard to being able to produce high quality results from images containing embedded ICC profiles and images where the colour space is encoded via the EXIF data. This talk will review the findings of the survey.


3D Photography by Jim Sharp


The main talk will be on how to take 3D photographs and the various ways to view them.
