When printing, the worst thing that can happen is that the true colors don’t come through. If the subject is a fruit basket, you want the image to look rich, juicy and lifelike. Not washed out. The apples should be red, bananas should be yellow, grapes should be green and the oranges should be just that – orange. The brighter the color, the harder it is to get an accurate print. There are a few steps you can take within the process to ensure a clear color.
Choose a quality source for ink, like Canon printer ink. The color is rich and doesn’t run. No matter what paper source or equipment you use, you get a good image every time.
RGB Vs. CMYK
When combined RGB (red, blue, green) creates white. It also works better for scanners, digital cameras and computer monitor settings. RGB has larger gamut and more saturation for richer color. CMYK (cyan, magenta, yellow, and key) on the other hand, creates black when combined. It’s more efficient for commercial printing. RGB prints bright vibrant colors best on a small scale such as stickers, while CMYK may wash them out. Neons, oranges and some blues won’t print true to color in CMYK, no matter how many ways you try to adjust the settings.
Take the time to learn the color settings in the software you’re using. They usually tell you how to set the color mode, choose the file formats, and adjust according to project. Read the directions, adjust the settings and do some test runs before you start printing projects. Canon ink cartridges do an automatic test print when you insert the cartridge into the printer to ensure quality images, so don’t be afraid to do small test prints until you get the result you want.
Most software programs have some kind of color guide to help you. Pantone, the leading authority on color, usually offers a Pantone Process Color Guide that walks you through the process. It also offers a wide range of colors for you to use without having to mix them yourself.
What’s Your Project?
Think about what type of project you’re doing. Animation, digital pictures, abstract art, fall color schemes, or spring color stories; all require different ranges of colors. Dark animation or fall color schemes may require more washed out dark color that can be achieved with CMYK settings. But spring color stories with a touch of bright fresh neons may require RGB settings for clarity.
No matter what result you’re trying to achieve it’s up to you to acquire the knowledge to bring your project to completion. Images can be as true to life as you want, and memories can be preserved true to the moment.by Read More

I had the pleasure of attending Greg LaVoi’s launch of his new line of designs inspired by someone in my own family. My great-aunt Irene Lentz has been gone now, for over four decades.. but not forgotten. Since I started my Irene-Lentz.com site back in 2009, I have had the pleasure of meeting (online and off) many Irene fans, a couple of authors and several talented individuals in the media and design world. I’ve received wonderful letters and testimonials from these folks reminiscing on their respect and love of Irene’s talent and skill in fashion design. It’s such a gift to hear this. Over the years; I’ve learned so much from the amazing people who have taken the time to write and share the results of their experience, connections to Irene Lentz, their years of research, projects and/or their writings related to my aunt. I’m truly honored.
Hollywood limelight was probably a weekly event in my great-aunts life. I imagine Irene rubbing elbows with celebrities was a pretty common occurrence in her career as a Hollywood Fashion Designer. I have seen the list of movies she worked on and incredible actresses she dressed. It’s a life and time I can only imagine.. from what I know of Hollywood, the photos I’ve seen from Irene’s personal collection, and stories I’ve heard from my mother and grandmother.
Most recently, I walked the red carpet at Greg’s design launch. Fun? You bet! The whole event was just amazing and Greg’s design line was phenomenal.. seriously. It was an honor to Irene and a pleasure to be a part after all these years. It is especially gratifying to think that this launch of new, reinvented designs, inspired by my aunt Irene, will be available to the public via Greg’s “Irene by Greg LaVoi”. New generations of people and designers will have the chance to get to know Irene Lentz, the original, through Greg’s very talented and thoughtful work. I imagine now, that the Irene Legacy will continue to thrive for years to come and that is something very impressive to look forward to.
I want to take this opportunity to thank everyone who has contacted me regarding your interests and connections to my great-aunt. I respond to all communications I receive and they continue to intrigue and delight me. Thank you for your time and oh-so-kind words.
These (below) are some additional images I personally took of the red carpet. If you care to see more from this awesome event, click to this link of my photos of the Irene by Greg LaVoi Fashion Show. Thank you and enjoy!
