The Photographer's Guide to Color Management

The Photographer's Guide to Color Management

LEARN HOW COLOR MANAGEMENT CAN BOOST EFFICIENCY, REDUCE FRUSTRATION, AND SAVE YOU MONEY


Today's digital photography workflow includes multiple devices—cameras, scanners, monitors, software, printers, and more— that can all perceive, display, or render the same color differently.

As a result, even if you see a close match between the display and printout in your immediate work environment, the colors your client sees when viewing your images on their computer may be disappointing. Additionally, the prints you recieve from your lab may fail to match your intent, requiring costly reprints.

Color-management processes are utilized to eliminate these kinds of problems and to provide consistent, predictable results as a photograph moves through the workflow. With these techniques in place, you can ensure that each image will meet the expectations of both photographer and the client.
