Color Management in Digital Photography…creativity instead of technology
Have you ever experienced the disappointment of capturing the perfect moment with your digital camera, only to end up with an off-color print? Did your rosy-cheeked baby appear green with envy? Color management is one of the essential elements, yet major stumbling blocks in digital photography. The vast majority of digital photographers really wish they didn’t have to be concerned with color management, yet the basic process of moving images from capture to print becomes impractical without it. And the more sophisticated the photography workflow becomes, the more important it is to manage colors from capture to print.
In Color Management in Digital Photography–Ten Easy Steps to True Colors in Photoshop, Brad Hinkel simplifies the language of color management. The book is based on classes and workshops the author has given to hundreds of students of digital photography. His process for color management is intended to provide enough information to create a simple and effective system allowing the user to get on with photography — to focus on creativity instead of technology.
