Digital Color Management: Principles and Strategies for the by Jan-Peter Homann

By Jan-Peter Homann

The ebook describes colour administration for the print construction with a spotlight on enforcing criteria for separation, smooth facts, agreement evidence, facts supply and printing.

The fundamentals and techniques are certain at constructing vendor-independent colour administration workflows that could simply be learned with major functions from e.g. Adobe, AGFA, GMG, Heidelberg, Kodak and X-Rite.

The writer explains with a special graphical inspiration how varied criteria similar to ISO 12647, SWOP, GRACoL, G7, ICC profile layout and PDF/X healthy jointly.

He describes the details for constructing colour administration and qc from the print client over images, company and pre-press to the printer. The e-book has a powerful specialise in verbal exchange among print shopper, photographer, organization, pre-press and printers. in accordance with the simplest perform in communique it explains the real steps for qc for electronic information, agreement proofs and prints.

"This first-class publication, now on hand in English for the 1st time, deals an perception and functional recommendation on all parts of ICC colour administration. in addition to providing info at the software of photograph arts workflows, it offers a history to paint idea that even the main skilled during this quarter will locate useful." Paul Sherfield, The lacking Horse Consultancy

Sample text

If one unwinds the individual rings to form a plane, this plane shows all the colors of equal saturation in the cube. The lightness increases from the bottom up, the hue changes from left to right. 31 Color Theory with Realistic Colors Color management would be childs play if there were ideal colors. Unfortunately, in practice it is far from simple. For a deeper understanding of color reproduction in offset printing, on monitors, with printers and other devices, much more theory is necessary. This chapter teaches the fundamental principles, why red is not always red and what the Lab color space, that acts as the base color space in color management, is all about.

RED Sorry. It’s not that simple! The other rules from the first chapter are, however, still valid: 1. With surface colors the color perceived in the eye is dependent on the light source’s spectrum. 2. Different spectra can give the observer the same impression of color. Colorimetrics, as the science of color, studies the connection between the spectrum of a color stimulus and the color perceived by the human. Since the first mathematical models were not so clear, there are now more suitable ones that are finding more and more applications in computer-based design.

Each phosphor’s brightness is controlled by a cathode ray accordingly. The colors then merge in the eye. Modern TFT monitors, technically speaking, work differently, but try to emulate the colors of CRT monitors the best they can. As we know from the previous chapter, monitors are able to display colors that are brighter and more saturated than print allows. Because no monitor is the same as another, image data is reproduced differently on each one. Such differences can be corrected with a monitor profile.
