At DreambooksPro we use the highest printing technology so that our customers can get amazing results in the printing of their works.
In this sense, we leave you 3 super important tips that will bring the works seen on your monitor, to the reality of our laboratory printing.
1 - Correct configuration of Adobe Photoshop:
The previous configuration for editing your work will have great involvement at the time of printing. At DreambooksPro we use the sRBG colour profile that is crucial for a real printing, when compared with what is seen on screen.
We safeguard that it is not enough to export files in the correct colour profile, because there may be deviations in colour when editing, so we advise you to perform the editing of files directly in the appropriate profile for our printing technology (sRGB). We leave an instructive image below on how to perform the previous configuration of Adobe Photoshop, before starting the editing process:
If you do this step, take into account the configurations indicated in the previous animations to carry out the export correctly, namely:
- Export files at 300 dpi's;
- File type: JPG
- Quality: 12
- Colour space: RGB
- Colour profile: sRGB (preview and export)
Any other photo editing software, such as Lightroom, among others, should be based on the settings presented above for correct image editing and export.
2 - Monitor calibration:
Correct calibration of the monitor will bring the visual reproduction of the file on the screen closer to the printed file.
The DreambooksPro periodically calibrates the monitors using X-Rite's i1 Display PRO calibrator, available for purchase through X-Rite's official website at https://www.xrite.com/categories/calibration-profiling/i1display-pro also you will can visualize the way of utilisation in the same site.

We also offer the purchase of 1 hour of technical assistance over the phone to ensure the correct use of the calibrator. You can purchase this assistance through our app.
3 - Appropriate monitor for image processing:
As you know, one of the most important tools for a photographer is undoubtedly to use a monitor that displays the colour, brightness, sharpness and fidelity of the captured image, because the technology we use to work, helps a lot in the final result of the work.
Here are some suggestions:
To help you make a quality choice, here are some of the most important characteristics your monitor should have:
3.1 - IPS (In-plane switching) display: this technology ensures that you always see the same image regardless of the viewing angle.
3.2 - Resolution (number of pixels on the screen): - Full HD (1920×1080): allows for better detail, sharpness and perception. The adobe software interface fits perfectly to work in this resolution, which is why it is one of the most recommended options.
3.3 - Colour range: it is very important that the monitor covers 99% of the sRGB colour profile.
3.4 -Contrast ratio: the ideal ratio for editing monitors is 1000:1
