Free downloads available for photographers and publishers
Ghent, Belgium – January 8, 2014 – The Ghent Workgroup (GWG) today announces that new Digital Photography specifications are available for download, at no cost, at: http://www.gwg.org/learn/digital-photography/. Two versions are available: “News Photography”, for newspaper production; and “Shootings”, for magazine and studio-quality production. The latest GWG Digital Photography specifications, based on those of GWG member association Medibel+, give photographers and publishers a compact set of digital photography guidelines for print production.
GWG recommends using these guidelines with digital photography projects for print production. Doing so will insure correct implementation of ICC color management and standards, which are essential to maintaining maximum quality from original capture through to the final, printed result.
