Color Management shows how to implement color as a practical form of problem solving. It is a consolidated resource, arming designers with an understanding of how to communicate with and manage color in all its aspects and applications: subtractive and additive; pigment, CMYK and RGB; 2-D and 3-D; still and motion. Sensitivity of pigments to light and air and the stability of inks is also detailed, as is the human factor, through issues of color legibility and the physical and psychological effects of color. Accompanying the book comes a CD, which contains a 10,000 hue color swatch book and application software for determining legibility of type and color combinations at a distance. Color Management features visually stimulating and engaging examples of dynamic professional graphic design work. In its depth and breadth, this is a unique body of information… a one-stop color resource for designers working across all fields of visuals.
There are step-by-step systems for achieving accurate color and successful process builds for prepress operations, color sinking, and overprinting, while technical issues of color-printing order, color mixing, dot gain, and color removal are also analyzed.
