Join Jan Kabili for an in-depth discussion in this video Color-managing your photos for BookSmart, part of Creating Photo Books with Blurb.
This movie is about color managing photos that you plan to put into a BookSmart book.…I'll emphasize up front that these color management techniques are optional.…Many BookSmart books look just fine without the author making any conscious…attempt to color management.…These techniques and this movie are for the advanced user.…The first step in color management is a must, and that is to calibrate and…profile your monitor.…If what you see on your monitor isn't accurate in terms of color and brightness,…then you can't make informed editing decisions and photos in your printed book…may look different in color and noticeably darker than they did on your monitor.…
To minimize those problems, from time to time you need to calibrate and profile…your monitor, and to do that, you need a device called a colorimeter.…Here's one example, but it's not the only one.…There are a number of companies.…X-Rite Photo is another one who sell devices like this.…You'll put the device on your monitor and launch the software that comes with it…
