Color Management Resources
read moreThere are many books promising to turn you into a Photoshop guru. Unfortunately, most are either disorganized, filled with fluff, or lack needed detail. This is not intended to be a typical all-inclusive list of links. Instead, the sites below have concise, articulate information with a minimum of extraneous blather.
Introduction to Icc Profiles
read moreProfiles are simply look-up tables that describe the properties of a color space. They define the most saturated colors available in a color space; i.e. the bluest blue or deepest black your printer can produce. If you don't have a profile, the trio of Red, Green, and Blue values (or CMYK) that make up a color have no particular meaning - you can say something is blue, but not exactly which shade of blue. Accurate profiles are the key to a color-managed workflow. With accurate monitor and printer profiles, your prints will closely match what you see on your monitor.
