Overview

Beautiful, realistic color: cameras capture it, but it’s one of the most complicated and confusing aspects of the digital darkroom. With today’s advanced technology, photographers have entered a maze of endless possibility that is difficult to grasp and control. Luckily, they now have a guide: Ted Dillard, author of RAW Pipeline, has created a roadmap to color consistency that will help photographers create images that fulfill their artistic vision—whether they’re reproducing reality precisely or generating new and imagined worlds of color in their work.
Dillard provides an overview of basic color theory, explains how the computer translates color, and devises several workflows for achieving the highest-quality image with the least amount of hassle. Using the flexibility of RAW files, the advanced color handling of Photoshop, and the power of Smart Objects in Adobe Camera RAW, he takes the reader on the best route from capturing the digital image to creating the fine print.

Their may be more technical books available, Color Pipeline is a fairly easy read and covers the bases using currently available techniques, hardware and software to explain how to obtain the best color match from start to finish in your digital work flow. This book cleared up some issues I was having while making prints from Adobe products and it also pointed out some software that is available to help calibrate and visualize color profiles for comparison. If you deal with high end graphics on a regular basis and find yourself frustrated at the output, this may be the book to read to clear it up. It does get technical at times but for the most part it is easy to follow along. The flow of the book does skip around a few times but it shouldn't be hard to understand anyhow. This would be a good read for someone with little or no understanding for color management. Probably less helpful for someone already with a good handle on things.
