“What is proofing?"

“What is a proof and what are the advantages of the different types of proofing?”

 

 

          Proofing is the process of posting the photographs we shoot on the internet for the purposes of easy viewing, especially useful in a situation where friends or family who were not able to attend the wedding would like to see the pictures. Proofing galleries generally have integrated shopping carts where prints can be ordered directly, even if the print-released images have already been delivered. Though the bride may save some money by using the print lab of her choice, it's nice to be able to offer anyone access to your images without having to lift a finger to make it possible. The images are typically watermarked with a tagline or logo to prevent people from illegally "right clicking" and saving our images to their computer to do who-knows-what with them later. The chief concern here is having imposters use our images to represent their supposed talent.
