Colour Management

As someone who has Real World Color Management by Chris Murphy, Fred Bunting and the late Bruce Fraser on the shelf. A publication I highly recommend for anyone interested in learning about “all things colour”. It’s great to see that Chris Murphy has written Colour Management Essential Training. According to’s write-up:

Color Management Essential Training, is an in-depth exploration of applying color theory and color management workflows in various graphics applications. Part 1 (chapters 1-9) explores color and color management theories, while part 2 (chapters 10-20) teaches actual color management techniques that can be incorporated into workflows. Beginning with definitions for such terms as hue, saturation, and metamerism, instructor Chris Murphy teaches the processes for getting consistent color in every stage – from input and edit through final output – and delves into color management principles for the web, prepress, and print. He also details specific color management workflows in Adobe Illustrator CS3, Photoshop CS3, InDesign CS3, Acrobat, and QuarkXPress 7. Exercise files accompany the tutorials.”

You can pre-order your copy now 🙂
