I think Bob's ideas are particularly important for beginners. They should try and keep the process as simple as possible. It is my not-so-humble-opinion that printing is intuitive. It cannot be fully successfully automated, or reduced to a complex formula (no irony there). Still, for those who can't get "intuit", perhaps a few tools and formulas will allow them to make acceptable prints. But (again IMHO) until one begins to rely on their eyes, they'll never make great prints.
