Students are introduced to colour management and its effect on accurate image capture, job files, monitor previews, proofs, and prints across all devices used in graphic communication workflows. Current "open-system" colour strategies are compared to traditional "closed-loop" colour systems. Students optimize and calibrate devices prior to profiling, as well as create and implement ICC profiles for a variety of uses. Colour management specifications including SNAP, GRACoL, and SWOP will be discussed in detail.
