Color management is one of the essential elements in digital photography, yet is is a major stumbling blocks for many. The vast majority of digital photographers wish they didn't have to be concerned with color management, but the basic process of moving images from capture to print becomes impractical without it. And the more sophisticated the photography workflow becomes, the more important it is to manage colors from capture to print. Brad Hinkel simplifies the language of color management in this book, which is based upon classes and workshops the author has given to hundreds of students of digital photography. His process for color management is intended to provide enough information to create a simple and effective system allowing the user to get on with photography and to focus on creativity instead of technology. The fact that this book suggests a simple approach to color management does not mean it sacrifices quality and effectiveness. Simpler is usually better - if it works.
