I’m new to photo editing and pretty clueless. I bought DXO PL3 and I’ve been able to create the pictures I want.
I saved them as TIFF files which are supported by printing machines found in stores etc. However my edited photos will not load on the terminals. Can I actually print edited pictures? Do I need to save them in a specific manner?
If anyone can explain why I might have this problem thank you for any help.
A first thought is “size”. I have tiff files created in DXO whith i.e 250.MB. Have a look at the size of your files. I doubt that the terminals will accept any size.
Have the same file also processed as a jpg and see if that works.
as @Joanna already mentioned, jpegs might be the better file type for your first trials. I’d also set color space to sRGB in the export dialog. This might get you colours closer to what you saw on your screen.
Thanks for the colour space tip. I’ll try that out.
TIFF files were accepted but I had to change the file from 16bit to 8bit. I don’t know what this means in terms of quality. I’ll find out when they arrive (I had to use the online service as the local store has had to close for 4 weeks.)
Also decided to print as JPEG to compare but I read that the quality is lower than TIFF.
