Product Description


Aus den Rezensionen:

"... Dieses englischsprachige Buch liefert die richtige Grundlagen und Vorgehensweisen für Farbmanagement. Es richtet sich in erster Linie an klassische Print-Publisher, aber auch Video- und Webdesigner können gut davon lernen und sich die Grundlagen für den wichtigen Bereich aneigen. [sic] " (in: Digital Production, März/April 2009, Issue 2, S. 11)

Product Description

The book describes color management for the print production with a focus on implementing standards for separation, soft proof, contract proof, data delivery and printing. The basics and strategies are targeted at setting up vendor-independent color management workflows which can easily be realized with leading applications from e.g. Adobe, AGFA, GMG, Heidelberg, Kodak and X-Rite. The author explains with a unique graphical concept how different standards such as ISO 12647, SWOP, GRACoL, G7, ICC profile format and PDF/X fit together. He describes the main points for setting up color management and quality control from the print buyer over photography, agency and pre-press to the printer. The book has a strong focus on communication between print buyer, photographer, agency, pre-press and printers. Based on the best practice in communication it explains the important steps for quality control for digital data, contract proofs and prints.

4.0 out of 5 stars Unique book on Colour Management 2 Jan 2013
By Lukas
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This is a great reference book on understanding colour. There are plenty examples to help explain how and why we manage colour, and suggested workflows for a number of key actors in graphic production process. Unfortunately in the copy I brought there are one or two sheets that are not reproduced as well as I'd expect considering that the subject is about controlling colour, but the intention of the diagrams are clear enough to understand what is communicated.
