Having a consistent color management workflow can help you accurately get prints that match the image on your monitor. In this course, follow along with Joe Brady as he takes you through the basics of color management for photography, design, and the web. First, you'll learn about the different color spaces (CMYK, ColorMatch, and sRGB) and how they influence your color workflow, and the tools you need to achieve accurate color. Then learn how and why to calibrate your camera and your monitor, configure the color settings in applications such as the Adobe Creative Suite and Aperture, and choose the best printer and paper for your style of artwork. Along the way, Joe takes you into a typical studio setup for lessons on the gear you need for at-home calibration and printing.
If you are a premium member of lynda.com, you have access to the exercise files used throughout this title. I've downloaded the Exercise folder here to my desktop, so let's take a look. So I open this up. If I go into Documents, all of the folders and images and the actual document for the InDesign sample are right here. If you go into InDesign and click on InDesign Sample, that will open up the document. For Photoshop, both the raw and the PSD files are available in the Images folder.
The raw files can be used in Adobe Camera Raw; the PSD files you can explore and turn layers on and off and see what was done to each image. Lastly, in the Lightroom_Database file we've got a Lightroom catalog here for you that has all the demo images in it. Just to show you how to do this, let's go into Lightroom. Here we have a blank catalog here. You would go to File > Open Catalog, navigate to the Exercise folder, go to Lightroom_Database, and there it is: Lightroom database catalog.
Click on Open, and we want to relaunch Lightroom with the new catalog. This will supply you with all the demo images, and they'll be all there, waiting for you to experiment and play with. After you're done with this you can just go back up to File and open up any of the Lightroom catalogs that you have. If you're not a premium subscriber to lynda.com, you don't have access to the exercise files, but you can follow along from scratch with your own assets. So, let's get started.
