So you've got your image, you're ready to print – now what? In this course, Jim Pierce and Wendy Veugler teach you how to put the polish and finishing touches on your images so that they amaze and interest in a style that's uniquely you!

Discuss various types of paper and where your images will look best. Will it be high gloss or cotton rag that leaves your client speechless? But, it's not just about printing.
