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.

All 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.

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.
