Re: color printing for dummies
Yes, you are right. I don't own an acid tongue . . nor is it too
alkaline. Just neutral and hopefully helpful w/no agenda.

Whoa! I had zero thoughts re being as you say but provided the
basic information easily available from this great listserve + who
says you're a cheapskate? And, in now way am I putting you in a
lower category as you imply. If it offends you accept my apology.

i really don't like your condescending tone of voice here. you
neither know me or how much time and effort i spent. you make it
sound like i did a "i'm feeling lucky"-google search and went
whining to the list, when i didn't come out lucky.
i was looking for a very basic piece of information which was (in
my eyes) strangely omitted in all the tutorials i found (except
for sam wang's - but which was ob rgb, not cmyk). i've read the
"rgb vs. cmyk" -thread, sam wang's tutorial, katherine's site and
a lot more. and i didn't ask for "please, give me lots of free
information to perfect my colour printing", i asked a question
which seemed to be too basicto be included, that's why i asked
about it here and i apologized for my ignorance.
i would have asked it on apug, but i didn't dare it, because it's
a half digital and half analog question. and there seems to be no
activity on the hybrid photo site.
if you scroll down a little in your mailbox, you'll find my first
post on this list, in which i already ordered the PF-issuses. and
later on a discussion on how much of a hassle it is to get them to
europe. i already went out of my way to order the darkroom book by
bruce barnbaum this year (which a friend brought me from the
states, because it would be pretty much impossible without his
help) and it's not only a matter of being a cheapskate (although
we're talking around $150 altogether (postage, customs and bank
fees) for a $40 book here), it also takes months to arrive. and
no, we don't have libraries with that kind of books here.
so please don't call me lazy or a freeloader, if you have no idea
what you are talking about...

Well, holy smokes, I'd read extensively the past threads of this
list, buy Chris Anderson 's 2 present books
and see (is it out yet Chris?) if her book is out on gum printing
yet. As well, see if you can garner all of
the superb, informative as well as interesting, publications by
Judy Seigel of her Post Factory Photography
compilations. Too Christopher James book . . . . and, gee, stay
on this listserve and you'll be set for life other than the
constant practice and dedicated interest it requires.
