Color Confidence is a practical, results-oriented book that gives photographers the knowledge they need to manage color effectively from capture to output. Digital imaging expert Tim Grey designed this book for busy photographers who want to get results without wading through tons of information about color science—-distilling the most important concepts into real-world use. He teaches only the theory that photographers must know to understand how color management works, and focuses on the practical information they need to make decisions when working with their images: the actual processes that achieve the best results possible. In this new edition of the very first practical guide to color management, readers will find out how to quickly get predictable color results across all devices--from cameras, monitors, and printers, to scanners and raster image processors (RIPs). Updated with new information on Photoshop, RIP technology, and calibration, this results-oriented book is a must for all serious photographers.

This interactive e-book is named ‘True Colors’, because it describes what we aim for when we try to produce an image without randomly changing its colours in print or on the internet. It centres on how to make the workflow of shooting> processing> manipulation> reproduction to be as predictable and optimal as possible. The human factor is central to the book. Most mistakes in the colour workflow are made through bad or lacking communication, and there’s a chapter on Communicating Color – not only about human-speak, but on how colour translates and communicates digitally to analogue output. It covers print, ink, paper, light, viewing and the many factors within Colour Management that are non-digital.

In the not-so-distant past, color reproduction was considered a craft--one handled by skilled craftspeople using proprietary systems. Today--thanks to the proliferation of desktop systems and devices--everyone and their uncle can get their hands in. But the bottom line is this: It¿s still a craft--and to apply color consistently and correctly across various hardware, software, and output devices, you need this hands-on project based guide. As the only Apple-certified tutorial on the topic, this book cuts through the theory to go straight to the heart of the matter: How to set up a Mac OS X-based workflow for those situations in which you employ color: photography and image capture, page layout and content creation, and output (to desktop printer or press). Author and color expert Joshua Weisberg distills a complicated process to its step-by-step essentials through a series of lessons and exercises that you can follow while using the files on the companion DVD.

Twenty years ago, achieving predictable CMYK color on press was a relatively straightforward process. All the partners in the process—photographers, designers, and printers—had clearly defined roles and responsibilities. With the introduction of Adobe Photoshop in 1990, the digital imaging revolution changed all that. Roles suddenly shifted and blurred. Standards disintegrated. The entire process quickly spiraled into a chaotic free-for-all that couldn’t help but leave everyone frustrated as they scratched their heads and wondered, “What’s wrong with my color?” CMYK 2.0: A Cooperative Workflow for Photographers, Designers, and Printers has one purpose: to get us all back on the same path to creating predictable color in the RGB-to-CMYK workflow. In a field that often features very strong—and very different—opinions, author Rick McCleary emphasizes the need for cooperation, collaboration, and communication. After first establishing a context for how we all got here, McCleary redefines each partner’s role in the process, demystifies the entire RGB-to-CMYK workflow, and offers a clear, step-by-step guide to achieving predictable color on press. Written with exceptional clarity, CMYK 2.0 presents a highly detailed and thoroughly rigorous approach to CMYK color, and it offers a workflow that all photographers, designers, and printers need—one that works. The book's companion website provides a collaborative forum of growing resources and information on all things CMYK.

With the move of cinema away from film, the adoption of electronic-based production throughout all media is now complete. In order to exploit its advantages, the accurate definition, measurement and reproduction of colour has become more important than ever to achieve the best fidelity of colour reproduction. This book is concerned with providing readers with all they need to know about colour: how it is perceived and described, how it is measured and generated and how it is reproduced in colour systems. It serves as both a tutorial and a reference book, defining what we mean by colour and providing an explanation of the proper derivation of chromaticity charts and through to the means of ensuring accurate colour management. Key Features: Addresses important theory and common misconceptions in colour science and reproduction, from the perception and characteristics of colour to the practicalities of its rendering in the fields of television, photography and cinematography Offers a clear treatment of the CIE chromaticity charts and their related calculations, supporting discussion on system primaries, their colour gamuts and the derivation of their contingent red, green and blue camera spectral sensitivities Reviews the next state-of-the-art developments in colour reproduction beyond current solutions, from Ultra-High Definition Television for the 2020s to laser projectors with unprecedented colour range for the digital cinema Includes a companion website hosting a workbook consisting of invaluable macro-enabled data worksheets; JPEG files containing images referred to in the book, including colour bars and grey scale charts to establish perceived contrast range under different environmental conditions; and, guides to both the workbook and JPEG files

The ICC review process ensures that the material and recommendations included are collaborative, reflecting the input of the wide community of color and imaging scientists and developers who make up its membership. Readers can be assured of the best advice for achieving optimum results. Provides an overview of color management in applications and the role of ICC profiles in a color reproduction system. Presents user guidelines on color measurement procedures and discusses measurement issues for media such as optically-brightened papers and inkjet prints. Offers comprehensive guidance on the latest version of the specification and the application of the perceptual rendering intent with its reference gamut. Examines the construction and benefits of different types of ICC profiles, and sets out compliance test considerations, implementation notes and evaluation of profile quality. Includes a glossary of terms. This book is written for color and imaging scientists developing, implementing and using color management systems within a range of imaging devices and software.

“What a fantastic book! It’s about color management for photographers. Sam explains why color management is essential for achieving accurate colors in photos and how to go about it. Neither in my printing technology lectures nor on the Internet have I found this topic explained as well as it is here. In fact, I found that after an enjoyable hour reading, I had learned quite a lot, and gained a far deeper understanding of the topic. If you don’t believe that Sam can put across this rather dry material with a smile in his eye, then just turn to page 15.” Birgit Engelhardt Photographer and enthusiastic reader of this book
