It’s confusing, difficult and not terribly exciting. But at a time when everyone’s eyes are on cost, colour is one of the few remaining areas of prepress where there are substantial savings to be had through improved process management.
The Guide to Colour Management & Proofing covers everything you need to know about colour management and digital proofing. It introduces the basics, explaining how colour works, what an ICC colour managed workflow really works and why people think it doesn’t, and its importance for workflow automation and production efficiency.
This Guide covers the primary issues shaping investment into a colour managed workflow, including hardware and software. Device calibration and profiling are fundamental to an efficient, colour managed workflow, but there is a lack of general understanding as to their importance, so this too is covered in the Guide.
