General Tutoring Session

We offer general one-on-one sessions covering common workflows to produce your work.

Intro to Printing
This session is ideal for someone who is a complete beginner to digital printing or someone who has printed but needs a thorough refresher. No prerequisite.

  • $65 for 90 minutes ($50 for Students/Recent Grads)

  • This tutoring session covers the basics of printing on rolls and sheets of paper through photoshop in a color managed workflow on LATITUDE’s small format 17 inch printers. Students will learn how to resize their images, edit their files nondestructively, load rolls and sheets of paper, and work through all of the print menus needed to send a file to print. Students will leave with two 8x10 prints on standard paper as well as an understanding of how to be a successful DIY user in the LATITUDE space.

  • Includes two 8x10 prints.

Intro to Printing with Lightroom
This session is designed for students who already use Lightroom and would like to continue printing through the software, or users who don’t know Lightroom and would like an overview of how the software works as well as its pros and cons. No prerequisite.

  • $65 for 90 minutes ($50 for Students/Recent Grads)

  • This tutoring session covers the same skills as our Intro to Print session, the only difference being the student will learn to make image adjustments and print through Lightroom instead of Photoshop.

This session is ideal for a lab user who feels comfortable printing on the 17 inch printers but wants to take their printing skills to a more advanced level.

  • $115 for 120 minutes ($95 for Students/Recent Grads)

  • This tutoring session is designed for someone who understands the basics of printing but wants more guidance when making larger prints on our 44-inch large format printers.
