It is important to make sure all images that you work on have an embedded profile. Photoshop has a colour settings panel that determines how the software will colour manage your files. At Metro we use settings common throughout the photographic industry.
This short guide walks you through setting up your Photoshop software so that you are colour managing your files in the same workspace as the lab.
1. In Photoshop go to Edit > Colour Settings
2. In Settings choose Custom from the drop down menu.
3. In Working Spaces for RGB choose Adobe RGB (1998) for CMYK choose US Web Coated (SWOP) v2.
4. If you would like to check the profile of a file you can always see it at the bottom of the document.
Prints ready for collection from 4 hours, or for delivery worldwide. We are able to produce bigger and better C-Type photo prints than anywhere else in the UK. Our photo prints can go up to 120 x 72 inches (3m x 1.8m) in size, giving you a huge choice of sizes when it comes to producing your prints.
While all of our colour and black and white photo printing services are of gallery quality, a lot of photographers and artists like to produce their fine art prints on Giclee watercolour paper, using archival pigment inks.
We can produce real Silver Gelatin 'Darkroom prints' from your digital files. Working with Ilford, we are able to print directly to Ilford Galerie Silver FB Glossy fibre based bromide photo paper and Ilford Galerie Digital Silver RC Pearl.
After your photos have been printed, our mounting team are able to mount the prints on a range of substrates, ranging from the lightweight foamex, foamboard or kapamount. We can also mount ctype photo prints onto more sturdy materials such as dibond or aluminium, backed with either battens or a subframe, depending on print size.
When ordering online, we offer a limited range of classic photo frames, in three finishes: white photo frame, smooth black photo frame or a solid light oak frame. Alternately, just order your prints online to take advantage of our great value online ordering system, then contact us to discuss alternate framing styles and our range of thousands of frame mouldings.
