Managing Color & Quality in Digital Photography Workflows
Author: Gry Garness
Publisher: Eureka Imaging Publications
View: 3948This 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.

View: 9172All successful imaging systems employ some form of color management for previewing, controlling and adjusting color throughout the image-production process. Today’s increasingly complex systems pose challenging problems: they must support numerous devices and media having disparate color properties, and they also must provide for the interchange of images among dissimilar systems. In this book, the authors address and solve these problems using innovative methods of representing color in the digital domain. The second edition of this popular book explains the capabilities and limitations of existing color management systems and provides comprehensive practical solutions for communicating color within and among imaging systems, from the simplest to the most complex. Beginning with the fundamentals of color and human color perception, the book progresses to in-depth analyses of the nature of color images, digital color encoding, color management systems and digital color interchange. Fully revised and updated, this second edition of Digital Color Management features new and expanded coverage including: electronic displays and electronic imaging systems; scene-based and appearance-based color encoding methods; color management for digital cinema; a Unified Paradigm—a comprehensive, integrated color-managed environment for the color-imaging industry; four new chapters, two new appendices, and more than 80 new figures. This book is an essential resource for engineers, programmers and imaging professionals designing and engineering color-imaging systems and for others simply looking to increase their understanding of the field. Scientists, researchers, advanced undergraduates and graduate students involved in imaging technology also will find this book of significant interest and usefulness. Reviews for the first edition: ‘The absence of unnecessary jargon, the impeccable writing style, the material depth leads only to one conclusion: If you buy one digital color book this year, buy this one.’ W. David Schwaderer, Digital Camera Magazine ‘It [Digital Color Management] fulfils the need among engineers and scientists for a comprehensive understanding of color management, imaging, media, viewing conditions, appearance and communication.’ Arthur S.

View: 6957Managing colour from the design stage to the finished product can be a difficult activity as colour perception is subjective and can therefore be inconsistent. Total colour management provides a basic yet comprehensive knowledge on many aspects of textile colour management with industrial applications in mind. The book is divided into two parts; measuring colour and managing colour. Chapter 1 introduces the topic by explaining the nature of colour and colour perception. Chapter 2 covers colour specification systems including the CIE system, colour order systems and colour specifiers, it also discusses the difficulties inherent in subjective measurements. Chapter 3 explores instrumental colour measurement; the measurements in terms of diffuse and regular reflectance and transmittance are explained as are the optical configuration and standard or recommended geometrics for making these measurements. Colour quality evaluation is dealt with in chapter 4. In particular, the colour difference formulae CIELAB and those formulae developed after it. Chapter 5 offers a practical guide to visual evaluation of textile samples, discussing various aspects of the visual colour evaluation process including the illuminant, the object, and the observer. In Part Two, chapter 6 discusses the accurate colour simulation on display devices including solid colour and colour samples with texture structures, such as textile fabrics. Chapter 7 explores effective methods of colour communication within retail. A chapter on computer colorant formulation follows and looks at the ways in which computers have advanced methods within the industry. Chapter 9 focuses on the factors that users of digital textile printing technology must take into consideration in order to control the application of colour to digitally printed fabrics. Chapter 10 discusses colour management across the supply chain, and finally chapter 11 concludes with quality assurance management for coloured goods. Total colour management proves invaluable for individuals from a variety of disciplines and organisation levels in colour management, colour quality monitoring and evaluation as well as for graphic designers, merchandisers, product development specialists and anyone who uses colour in their work. It is also of use to academics and students researching textiles, fashion, design, fine arts, or any colour related subjects.

View: 4264A Complete One-Stop Resource While digital color is now the technology of choice for printers, the knowledge required to address the quality and productivity issues of these devices is scattered across several technologies, as is its supporting literature. Bringing together information from diverse fields, Control of Color Imaging Systems: Analysis and Design is the first book to provide comprehensive coverage of the fundamentals and algorithms of the numerous disciplines associated with digital color printing in a single resource. The authors review the history of digital printing systems, explore its current status, and explain fundamental concepts, including: digital image formation, sampling, quantization, image coding, spot color calibration, and one- and multi-dimensional tone control of color management systems — including process physics and controls. A Complete Self-Tutorial With Over 150 Design Examples and 120 Exercise Problems Based on the authors’ three decades of hands-on technical and teaching experience, the text provides engineers and technicians with an end-to-end understanding of the color printing process, and helps them build a foundation drawn from the diverse disciplines needed to manage and control digital production printers. The control theory and methods presented in this book are state-of-the art for color printing systems; however, coverage of theoretical concepts and mathematics are kept to the basics, as the book is designed to teach hand’s on skills that will allow practitioners to gain an immediate understanding of quality and productivity concerns. The understanding provided will help practitioners build the technical skills needed to help pioneer the next generation of ideas, algorithms, and methods that will further expand the frontier of this rapidly evolving technology.
