With all of the disjointed information across the net, it is easy to get the impression that creating digital negatives for PT/PD printing is an arcane and esoteric skill limited to a few privileged experts. Ron smashes this misconception and demystifies the process in a concise, easy-to-follow and surprisingly fun fashion. By the end of the book I not only knew how to calibrate my digineg workflow, I understood the whole QTR process. Knowing the "why" is just as important as knowing the "how" -- if you ever run in to problems with your workflow, understanding the concepts behind the process gives you the tools to effectively troubleshoot. It also makes it much easier to apply these same concepts for other alternative processes. Following Ron's book allows for repeatable results without any guesswork -- and with the high cost of platinum and palladium, this book will pay for itself many times over in saved sensitizer alone!
Ron is the go-to guy for using the QTR RIP for making digital negatives. His book provides a clear and concise explanation of the process and will guide the reader through all the potential pitfalls that can arise when trying to create your own digital negative workflow. It is an excellent book by a very knowledgable practitioner.
