Every graphics professional worth his or her salt knows the importance of color management. No matter how much thought artist and client put into the color scheme for a given project, all of that work is for naught if you can't get your results to match your expectations. Enter Real World Color Management, Second Edition. In this thoroughly updated under-the-hood reference, authors Bruce Fraser, Chris Murphy, and Fred Bunting draw on their years of professional experience to show you everything you need to know about color management. Whether your final destination is print, Web, or film, Real World Color Management, Second Edition takes the mystery out of color management, covering everything from color theory and color models to understanding how devices interpret and display color. You'll find expert advice for building and fine-tuning color profiles for input and output devices (digital cameras and scanners, displays, printers, and more), selecting the right color management workflow, and managing color within and across major design applications. Get Real World Color Management, Second Edition--and get ready to dazzle!


Publishers, printers, magazine artists, and graphics professionals everywhere know how important color management is in their work. The goal is color fidelity, so that when the artist and client agree on a color scheme, they can be assured that the colors they specify in the design phase are exactly what they get in the final product, whether it's for print, the Web, or film. From swatch to screen, from proof to final output, the way to make sure your results match your expectations is through color management. In Real World Color Management, authors Bruce Fraser, Fred Bunting, and Chris Murphy take the mystery out of the complex subject of color management. This industrial-strength, under-the hood reference covers color theory and color models; understanding how devices interpret and display color; building and tuning color profiles for input devices such as digital cameras and scanners, displays, and output devices such as printers; and selecting the best color management workflow.

In addition, designers and prepress professionals will learn everything they need to know to manage color within and across popular design applications, including Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign and Acrobat; QuarkXPress, CorelDraw; and Macromedia FreeHand. Previously appeared in 4/2002 catalog.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Gehaltvoll, kurz, gut 8. Februar 2009
Von M. Kipp
Ich kam über das Videotutorial von "Luminous Landscape" auf dieses Buch und es ist eine reine Goldgrube an Informationen. Farbmanagement und das notwenige Hintergrundwissen zu Technik und Farbwahrnehmung sind eine komplexe und ermüdende Materie. Die Autoren schaffen es jedoch, sich immer wieder auf das Notwendigste zu beschränken, so dass man nach jedem Kapitel das Gefühl hat, dem "heiligen Gral" einen Schritt näher gekommen zu sein: nämlich der Frage, wie ich sicher stelle, dass die Farben, die ich auf meinem Bildschirm sehe, auch beim Druck so auf dem Papier landen.

Das Buch geht natürlich noch weit über diese Frage hinaus. Für mich eines der besten Sachbücher, die ich in den letzten Jahren gelesen habe.

5.0 von 5 Sternen FINALLY - An Easy to Understand Color Management Book 22. Oktober 2003
Von V. Maciulski - Veröffentlicht auf
This is the most thorough, and easy-to-understand book on color management that I've ever seen. They start with some color theory, but don't bog down on the technical, like some other books I've seen.
They explain the color management and profile process, then tell you how to build profiles for various devices. They spend six (!) chapters on building and editing profiles. There are separate chapters for measurement & calibration, displays, input devices, output devices, etc. As an example, they cover the steps and procedures to profile RGB inkjet printers, CMYK inkjets, CMYK color lasers, CMYK solid inks, Dye-sub printers, and much more.
That process has always seemed like a bunch of mumbojumbo to me, but I found their explanations to be easy to follow. They explain the need for the right lighting in the room where you proof and print and how color shifts can occur.
Then, they deal with applications and workflow. Chapter twelve covers the Adobe Color architecture. subsequent chapters deal with separate apps like Freehand, Corel Draw, QuarkXPress and PDF.
They explain Colorsync and ICM color management systems. And there is a nice discussion about WHEN in the process to convert the color profile of an image.
The appendices have some very useful info on profiles and workflows.
It's a bit pricey, but if you NEED color management, it is worth it.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A must have reference! 29. Januar 2003
Von Andrew D. Rodney - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Taschenbuch|Von Amazon bestätigter Kauf
First, I have no idea who William X is but his review is a slam to Mr. Murphy and just useless dribble. I know Chris lives in Bolder so I have to assume this is a person with some kind of agenda towards Chris.
Now onto the book. I am a color geek myself although I try not to get into all the discussions like how many ICC Profiles will fit on a pin. I have purchased nearly every book on the subject of color, color theory and color management. I have been reading Frasers, Buntin and Murphy's posts on the Apple ColorSync list for years and have literally hundreds of posts from each archived. Real World Color Management is the best book on the subject bar none. It's VERY easy to read and well explained. Even the first few chapters on color theory are so well explained that I not only picked up some good concepts I didn't know, I learned how to explain them to others in a much more concise manner. For those that feel that color management and computer imaging are moving at such a pace that no book can be useful for any length of time, I would say that RWCM is worth the price of admission just for the foundation in color and computer theory it presents in the first 100 or so pages.
There is a huge wealth of information that I've never seen anywhere else! The areas in the book discussing how to evaluate the quality of ICC profiles is worth it's weight in gold. The various chapters covering specific software products and how they deal with color management is invaluable. What makes this book so wonderful is it's tone. It has a sense of humor (so needed with this kind of topic). It doesn't look down on the reader and more importantly, it's clear and to the point. There's virtually no math to make your head explode.
I happen to know all three authors (some more than others) and I am proud that they have finally achieved the final goal of producing what I believe is the definitive book on the subject of color management. Anyone that works with computer graphics or produces output from a computer should have this book.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Best color management book 6. Mai 2005
Von R. Hettinger - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Taschenbuch|Von Amazon bestätigter Kauf
This is more readable, information rich, and practical than Tim Grey's well-written "Color Confidence" which had set a high standard.

Like most books on the subject, it starts with a color theory chapter. Besides being a pleasure to read, it is almost certain to teach something you didn't already know. Even a science whiz will be impressed at how gently, thoroughly, and coherently the topics are brought together.

Most of the remaining chapters can be read in isolation. Many will immediately focus on a chapter relating to their specific software and then proceed to the all important workflow chapter.

For those buying tools, the book offers excellent coverage of the major products including hardware (densiometers, colorimeters, spectrophotometers, targets, monitors, printers, and inks), profiling packages (Gretag-Macbeth, Monaco, etc), and ICC visualization/editing tools (ColorThink and such).

The book empowers you to make thoughtful choices on every Photoshop setting (black-points, colorspaces, rendering intents, etc). Also, the section on evaluating profiles is excellent. This topic is usually omitted from other books on the subject.

All in all, I give this one an A+.

5.0 von 5 Sternen The definitive book on color management 8. April 2003
Von Ein Kunde - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Taschenbuch|Von Amazon bestätigter Kauf
Real World Color Management addresses the all too familiar lament: "My inkjet prints photos that do not reflect what's on my screen."
Color management always seemed like an arcane science. While Colorsync is in its 4th iteration, we have yet to see some sort of a definitive manual from Apple.
Real World Color Management puts all these to rest. It's not a color book for color scientists. This is a book for people who are interested in how color interacts between what they see through their digital cameras, what they on their screens, what comes out of their printers.
There are sections that cover profiling devices, the software and hardware used to profile, how color management is implemented in the Macintosh and in Windows systems, and in the most popular graphics applications (Adobe, Macromedia, Corel). There has been a gaping silence from Apple, from Microsoft, from Epson (and other printer manufacturers) on how to use color management, on how to get good color from input device to output device. This book addresses that.
This book answers most of the questions I had on color management. Color management is no longer a mysterious black box in which you see the input and output but in which you have practically no idea what happens in between.
This is the definitive book on color management.

5.0 von 5 Sternen fantastic 31. Januar 2003
Von L. Sabo - Veröffentlicht auf
The real color gurus give us great information on the many aspects of color management (If you are new to digital imaging, color management is the means by which you try to get consistent color results -- for instance, what you see on your monitor matches your printed output.) Color theory, metamerism, callibration and profiles, specifics on various applications such as Photoshop, Quark, etc., and more.
Right off the bat I found the section on callibrating your monitor and evaluating the resulting callibration and profile very useful. Included tips for getting the callibration "right" that I have never seen elsewhere and were very helpful. There are similar discussions on input devices (scanners, cameras) and output devices (printers). And there is much more. Well worth the price.
