ICC Colour Management

One Day Course

Overview

Good colour management improves the accuracy, predictability and consistency of colour reproduction from scanning through to print by using ICC colour profiles.

This one day course explains the concepts and principles of colour management which enable you to improve colour quality, reduce colour production timescales and benefit from real and measurable cost savings. The theory of this course will be covered in around the first hour with the remainder of the course covering hands-on exercises. These will include creating ICC profiles by measuring and calibrating displays, scanners, printers and cameras, then ensuring these profiles are enabled and being used properly when soft proofing, hard proofing and final output.

This course is for anyone who works with digital images from creatives through to repro and print professionals who needs to understand how to create, implement and get the most out of ICC profiles. You need no previous experience to attend this course.
