Photo Printing Resources
Retirement Community Camera Club – Articles, Videos & Tutorials
In January 2020, I was invited to speak to a local retirement community photography club about photo printers and printing. As any photographer knows, this requires knowledge and understanding beyond just which printer to buy. My program covered basic topics I deemed most crucial to photographers new to printing: monitor calibration, photo printers, viewing conditions and software. I created this post to list the photo printing resources and URLs, making it easier for readers to find them at one location, my blog.
