How To: Working With Plywerk Bamboo Art Panels Part #2

In this installment of my How To: videos, I cover working with the photographic print before mounting it to a Plywerk bamboo panel. I’ll talk about a tip I learned from Brooks Jensen of LensWork Magazine, I’ll cover getting the print cut accurately at 90 degrees even if your printer doesn’t print the image parallel to the edge of the paper, and I’ll show you how to lay out marks on the back of the print that will help in the mounting of the print to the panel.
