The LightRoom has been helping photographers and other artists get the best prints of their images since 1975. We have been offering the best of digital printing since the end of the last century, specializing in pigment inkjet (giclée) printing. From film scanning to the preparation of any digital file to simply working with your own printer-ready files, we can help you get the most from your work. Our services are further detailed in the links to the left. For those new to digital imaging, our Introduction page explains some of the basic concepts such as resolution, color profiling and the workflow to prepare for printing. We also showcase the work of our many talented clients at our studio gallery. Current and past shows can be viewed on our Gallery page here.
LightRumors is our blog and I have been guilty of infrequent updates, so I’ve decided to put a little * next to it when the current entry is less that one month old. With luck, that will remind me to be a little more diligent in updating it. Check it out; I think even the older entries still have some merit.
I encourage anyone with a question not answered here to call me. I prefer talking with people as the best way to offer specific help. The success of The LightRoom has always stemmed from the personal relationships of myself and anyone else who has worked here with our clients. This is true for anyone, whether they are quite capable of submitting printer ready files or they need assistance with any aspect of the process.
Our newest service is the printing of Folios, an option to produce an elegant collection of art at reasonable prices that I think has a lot of utility and is fun to work on. Check out the new link to the left or call for more details or drop by the studio to get a look at some of the ones produced so far.
As many of you know, our LightJet printing was not done in-house, but printed at a local lab we’ve had an arrangement with for 15 years. They closed down recently so that’s an era that has come to an end here. It won’t be much missed-months can go by without an order for LightJet prints. The advantages of pigment inkjet printing are just too many.
