In part 1 Terry will start by
illustrating the problem, then cover the little bit of colour theory
necessary, including how colour is defined, gamut, colour space
(sRGB, AdobeRGB, …) , ICC profiles and rendering intent. Then
why is colour management important, what does it mean for you?
In part 2, via a live demonstration, Terry will work through calibrating a camera, monitor and printer. This is followed by how to do colour workflow in both Photoshop and Lightroom. Lots of practical advice and tips.
