Pain Pain Pain
« on: August 26, 2022, 11:05:30 AM »
Sometimes the stuff customers want and expectations are in different universes.

Any idea on what IU can do with the below attached pic. It has to be that pic and they do not want a photo look, so greyscale is out the door. Attached is their kind of expectation. But here is the kicker it has to go on a dark and a light. What would you guys do, some type of filter or play with curves? I tried some stuff but it was just not working, then to make it work in reverse was not working. I hate this job sometimes.

The crap we get, but if you polish enough... I would take this into PS, and there I have an Export option called PhotoZoomPro (I see lately that's it's available as a stand alone) and double the size first, you'd be surprised how well it works. Not perfect, but usually better than what you started with. Then I might, in PS, us the Black & White option under Adjustments in the Image menu, to adjust it to a gray scale with far more control than by just converting to gray scale. Then, try the Threshold tool under the same Adjustments/Image location. It's not a very good image is it?

Oh hell no. When do we ever get good images? Imagine we got camera RAW files? Better chance of winning that 1 billion lottery.

Nah thats not what they want. They want it more illustrated. I will probably just send it to someone to do for me. Anyone want the gig?

I talk to customers about art and the first thing I say is, hey what color shirts are you getting, because you know printing a black ink on a black shirt want work without some other color to trap it.  Customer oh no we only want light color shirts so black will be fine on all, (me) cool, then they place there order and half the shirts are black :o
