I wasted large quantities of paper, ink and most of all - my time, unsuccessfully trying to get reasonable quality colour reproduction of photographs (digital and film): Then, instead of wasting yet more money and time upgrading my printer, scanner, cameras, computer monitor......I bought this book.This is an excellent treatment of the subject. I am an engineer by profession, so I found the clear and accurate technical content very helpful.If you want to understand why your camera appears to capture one set of colours, your monitor displays a different set and you cannot get a print which looks like either, let alone the original scene - this book can help.If you want to get all or even any two to match each other - look no further - although you will need to spend money on getting someone else to profile your monitor and printer, or buy some rather expensive equipment to do it yourself.

I am really trying to get my computer and printer color calibrated and I am very interested in this subject. This book is like a textbook and is very in depth on the subject. It is probably very good for a professional but it was a little over my head.

[A review of the SECOND EDITION, 2004.] For graphics designers, the book aims to demystify how to use colouring in your work. The authors give a thorough elucidation of what they term 'colour management'. Starting with the basics of a source of illumination, an object being viewed, and an observer, which could be a person or instrument. Don't worry about the underlying physics. The book goes briefly through just enough for your needs. (No equations!) The key idea is the colour profile and the Profile Connection Space. As you might expect, the colour example diagrams used to help show this idea are carefully chosen. Many chapters delve into the various profile topics. Like making input profiles, editing these and using them in your workflow. One interesting photo, to me, was of various HAND-HELD spectrophotometers. The ones I used in the 80s were hulking giants, some 1-2m on a side, and atop sturdy lab benches. Now you can hold the latest in your hand! Wow. The book talks about digital cameras as a common input device, as you might expect, given their popularity. Sadly, no mention of Foveon's unique camera. Which does not use CCDs, but has another innovative method with very high resolution. This camera is still new and expensive. But it may soon define the best in digital cameras.
