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.

Color Management serves as a comprehensive guide to the implementation of the ICC (International Color Consortium) profile specification, widely used for maintaining color fidelity across multi-media imaging devices and software. The book draws together many of the White Papers produced by the ICC to promote the use of color management and disseminate good practice; the ICC specification has become widely accepted within the color industry, and these papers have been updated, expanded and edited for this collection. Other chapters comprise material that will go on to form future ICC White Papers, as well as some original content. 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. Senior undergraduate and postgraduate students will also find the book of use.

Digitale Kameras liefern bereits heute Bilddaten, die eine großformatige Ausgabe in höchster Qualität erlauben. Aber auch die Drucktechnik hat mit der Entwicklung der Bildsensoren Schritt gehalten: Inkjet-Systeme mit höchster Präzision und Auflösung, Tinten, die feinste Tonwertabstufungen darstellen können und langfristige Farbstabilität bieten – und das alles zu Preisen, die auch für den anspruchsvollen Amateur erschwinglich sind.Fine Art Printing ist kein Buch über Drucktechnik, sondern ein Buch von Fotografen für Fotografen. Es zeigt Ihnen, wie man einen geeigneten Drucker auswählt, wie man hochwertige Fotodrucke mit guten Inkjet-Druckern herstellt und wie man den fotografischen Workflow zur optimalen Vorbereitung der Bilddaten anlegt.Das Buch erläutert, wie man diesen letzten Arbeitsschritt in der "digitalen Dunkelkammer" meistert, um perfekte, ausstellungsreife und langlebige Drucke zu erzeugen. Die nötigen Grundlagen des Farbmanagements und der Profilerstellung werden ebenso behandelt wie die Auswahl geeigneter Drucker, Papiere und Tinten sowie das Optimieren der Fotos für den Druck. Auch die Nachbehandlung der gedruckten Bilder und Möglichkeiten der Bildpräsentation werden angesprochen.Die 5. Auflage berücksichtigt neben Photoshop 5,6 und CC neue Filter, aktuelle RIPs sowie neue Druckertypen und Papierarten. Es deckt auch ausführlich das Drucken auf Lightroom (inklusive Lightroom Classic) ab. Es ist damit das einzige deutschsprachige Buch in dieser Tiefe und Vollständigkeit.

“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

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.

Fallen Begriffe wie Farbmanagement oder gar Farbräume, verdrehen Zuhörer die Augen und schauen sich schon mal nach einem Fluchtweg um. Zu oft folgt darauf ein Wirrwarr von Fachbegriffen gepaart mit vehementen Meinungen wie man hier vorzugehen hätte. Da ist dieses Buch eine angenehme Abwechslung: Praktische Beispiele veranschaulichen die Grundlagen, Fachbegriffe werden vernünftig erklärt, auf unnötige Fremdwörter wird verzichtet. Perfekte Drucke - nie war Farbmanagement so einfach wie mit diesem Buch Ohne korrekten Umgang mit den Farben zeigen Drucke schnell falsche Farben, fehlen Details vor allem in roten Bereichen oder gar komplette Farbtöne wie kräftiges Türkis oder Dunkelblau. Kalibriert man auch nur seinen Bildschirm, ohne sich der Folgen bewusst zu sein, zeigt manches Programm das gleiche Bild mit anderen Farben. Die Möglichkeiten für Fehler sind so vielfältig, dass man es nicht auf den Zufall ankommen lassen, sondern sich stattdessen einmal mit dem Thema Farbmanagement auseinandersetzen sollte. Mit diesem verständlich geschriebenen und bezahlbaren Buch gibt es keine Ausrede mehr, sich nicht mit Farbräumen auszukennen

The Digital Zone System

Taking Control from Capture to Print

Page: 160

View: 780

There is an ongoing debate among photographers whether digital photography processes will ever be able to reach the pinnacle of image quality and tonality achieved by Ansel Adams decades ago. The Digital Zone System (DZS) is an innovative methodology for editing digital images that mimics the Zone System created by Adams. With this book, author Robert Fisher presents a practical guide for editing digital images with a level of control previously unattainable without significant manual work. He walks the reader through the background of Adam's original Zone System and points out similarities to current digital processes including Expose to the Right (ETTR) and high dynamic range imaging (HDRI). Learn to use luminance masks to separate an image into "one-stop" zones of brightness, similar to the zones in Adams's Zone System, that can be worked on individually or in groups. This makes the DZS a powerful tool for converting color images to black and white. You will also gain tremendous control over how color is adjusted in your images by learning to isolate and adjust color in specific targeted areas. These DZS processes are quicker and simpler than the tedious work of using global adjustments and painting in layer masks to isolate the effects of an adjustment layer. In this book, you will learn how to use the Digital Zone System for editing color images, converting images to black and white, and tone mapping HDR images. Also included are brief discussions of color management, setting up Photoshop, printing, and exposure for digital images. The book is richly illustrated with step-by-step screenshots and stunning example images that show the benefits of the Digital Zone System over commonly used digital editing methods. Once mastered, the DZS will allow you to produce a higher level of quality in your images, at a faster pace and with greater ease than ever before.
