Join Joe Brady for an in-depth discussion in this video Soft proofing for inkjet printing, part of Advanced Color Workflows for Photographers.
…Let's put one of those beautiful new customer profiles to work,…by going through the soft proofing process on this particular image.…To do this, we go up to view >proof setup >custom.…And here is smooth high gloss profile that we created.…Let's first go through the gold cotton textured profile.…And you can see as I switch back and forth between these two.…That there's a very different response on the screen and…that's to be expected because gold cotton texture is a fine art matte paper so…it doesn't, as a default have the density that a gloss surface does.…So let's leave that in there and…then we'll check our rendering intense perceptual versus relative color metric.…
Again, ignore the other two.…And you can see when we go to Relative Color Metric the blue sky comes back in…a lot more.…Let's take a look one more time.…Yeah, Perceptual washes out a little bit.…Relative Color Metric gives us that blue back.…And we're going to intensify this a little more, but…let's use this as our starting point.…Also, by the way, while we're here,…
In this course, Joe Brady builds on his Color Management Fundamentals course, focusing on color-management issues of specific interest to photographers. After a review of digital-color concepts, the course explores creating color profiles for each device in the digital photography workflow, from monitor to printer, to camera. Joe demonstrates the tools and techniques behind color profiling, even covering tablets—ideal for photographers using iPads or Android tablets as wireless remote controls.
