This review is from: Color Management for Digital Photographers For Dummies (Paperback)
I was looking for a book that would teach me about colour management and monitor and printer colour profiling, with the object of being able to reproduce a print that matched the image on my monitor.
Having found the "For Dummies" series of books very helpful in the past I tried this, but I must say I was disappointed.
The book spends three chapters explaining colour spaces and how to calibrate your monitor - just what I was looking for. Unfortunately it then spends five chapters on how to do basic photo editing using Photoshop Elements - a program I do not use. There are two further chapters covering colour printing and printer profiling and finally a chapter on "Ten Reasons to upgrade to Photoshop." which reads more like an Adobe sales pitch.
Overall I think about one third of the book gave me information I was looking for. If I'd wanted a book on Photoshop Elements, there are lots available and I was quite disappointed with the information presented here.
I'm sure there are better books on colour management available and I shall be looking for something more comprehensive and helpful than this.
