Overview of high resolution digital printing
New technologies are allowing artists extended possibilities in digital media printing. Prints utilizing a wide range of output devices from extended focus scanning, high res cameras and new imaging software allow for producing prints of superb image quality of the highest resolutions ever obtained. Meanwhile, beautiful prints that offer a range of possibilities can be made using video stills and images obtained from cell phones. These will often have a subtle softer quality that may serve particular artistic expressions. Substrates for printing on have improved immensely that range from traditional photo papers to heavy weight fine art papers including textured watercolor papers. AC Printshop has been exploring using a wide range of traditional Xuan papers with excellent results.
