The technologies used for color reproduction increasingly embody in software the traditional skills of the graphic arts specialists, and users with no background in color reproduction are now capable of achieving adequate results without using commercial services. As a result, color reproduction professionals need to be able to apply a more advanced understanding of their trade to develop greater levels of quality and consistency, implement faster and more efficient workflows, and meet their customers' needs through specialized services--and Understanding Digital Color, Second Edition, will help you achieve those objectives. With new chapters on workflow, file preparation, and output systems, this revised edition covers all aspects of digital color, including: fundamentals of color; color measurement and specification, including colorimetry; digitizing color; the color original; scanning and digital photography; color conversion and separation; color management; PostScript and PDF; output systems; digital workflow; file preparation; proofing; digital printing; and conventional printing.
