p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Good book for Capture NX-2?


I am really struggling printing with CS-3 and would like to just use Capture NX2 if I can. I THINK I understand CS-3's color management process but don't have a clue about NX-2 and could use a good book.

Specifically, I can assign a color profile through the adjust menu, as a preference setup and twice once I click print. Once I click print and get the CNX2 print layout dialog box I can select to use source profile or use color management. Under color management I can select a printer profile. Then the printer dialog box opens and again have the option of having color matching set to either Colorsync or Canon Color matching. If I select Colorsync and I think that is correct, I can choose automatic or a printer profile. If I select a printer profile here as well as in the prior dialog box called print layout, I think I am double profiling.

Either way, I need a book to walk me through when to select color profiles and when not to.

Any recommendations are appreciated.

Greg

Jason Odell probably knows more about NX2 than anybody:

Either Ben Long's "Real World Capture NX2"

or

Mike Hagen "Nikon Capture NX2 After the Shot"

I also bought Jason Odell's eBooks but just never got into reading a PDF book. I like the freedom of a printed edition.

The top book I use the most, and use the Hagen book for validation...
