Apple Pro Training Series: Practical Color Management with Mac OS X (Apple Pro Training Series)

Overview

In the not-so-distant past, color reproduction was considered a craft--one handled by skilled craftspeople using proprietary systems. Today--thanks to the proliferation of desktop systems and devices--everyone and their uncle can get their hands in. But the bottom line is this: It¿s still a craft--and to apply color consistently and correctly across various hardware, software, and output devices, you need this hands-on project based guide.

Overview

In the not-so-distant past, color reproduction was considered a craft--one handled by skilled craftspeople using proprietary systems. Today--thanks to the proliferation of desktop systems and devices--everyone and their uncle can get their hands in. But the bottom line is this: It¿s still a craft--and to apply color consistently and correctly across various hardware, software, and output devices, you need this hands-on project based guide. As the only Apple-certified tutorial on the topic, this book cuts through the theory to go straight to the heart of the matter: How to set up a Mac OS X-based workflow for those situations in which you employ color: photography and image capture, page layout and content creation, and output (to desktop printer or press). Author and color expert Joshua Weisberg distills a complicated process to its step-by-step essentials through a series of lessons and exercises that you can follow while using the files on the companion DVD.

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
The Barnes & Noble Review
Few topics are more mysterious than color management. But, given today’s digital workflows, color management responsibilities often fall to graphics professionals who haven’t had specialized training or yesterday’s lengthy apprenticeships. Mac OS X “Panther,” which builds strong color management features into the operating system, will help. A practical, real-world guide to OS X color management will help even more. Here it is: Apple Pro Training Series: Color Management in Mac OS X.

You’ll walk through a series of exercises on implementing color management hands-on. Author and color management consultant Joshua Weisberg first walks you through the creation of ICC profiles for a variety of imaging devices. You’ll configure Photoshop’s complicated Color Settings dialog box, then learn to import scanned and photographed images in color-managed environments.

Weisberg offers detailed guidance on color-managed softproofing and printing from Photoshop -- tasks that many users struggle with. He does much the same for QuarkXPress, demonstrating the creation and softproofing of documents with multiple, diverse color elements. Along the way, you’ll master optimal color workflow for photography, image capture, page layout, content creation, and desktop and press output. You’ll even learn how to prepare images for more accurate reproduction on the Web and in digital video.

All the sample files are on CD-ROM, plus trial licenses for two leading color management tools: GretagMacbeth’s ProfileMaker Pro and ColorEyes 20/20. While this book contains a special section on Panther’s new color management features, and the trialware assumes OS X 10.2.5+, every OS X graphic arts professional can benefit from it. Bill Camarda
