Getting Started with Color Management—A Primer for Graphic Designers
Do you struggle with producing color consistently—photographs don’t print as expected; logos and graphic elements don’t match from piece to piece? When working in Photoshop, are you unsure about the right choice when warning messages pop-up about embedded profiles, working spaces, and converting colors?
As a graphic arts professional, it is not necessary to become a color management expert, but it is essential to become a color management practitioner.
In this hour-long talk, Martha DiMeo will introduce three essential steps in implementing a color-managed workflow. You’ll learn about display profiling and calibration, embedding and honoring document profiles, and the importance of a color-friendly work environment to view and evaluate color. You’ll come away with an understanding of the role of color management in the digital workflow and the necessary steps to achieve consistent, predictable, and repeatable color from design to final output.
