I finally had some prints made - just 4 X 6 but I wanted to see how they transferred to paper without any special instructions.
Most but not all of them were much much darker on paper than on screen especially shadow areas, and my snow that I thought was so white this year was grey or blue, so I think I need to change my workflow for shots that I want to print.
The question is: should I try to lighten things up on screen OR do I try to get things the way I like on screen and then get the printers to make adjustments?
Please don't get too technical for now. I know there is a lot involved, but I need to take little steps and eventually get to the point where I anything I have saved would be ready for printing.
