Join Joe Brady for an in-depth discussion in this video What you should know before watching this course, part of Advanced Color Workflows for Photographers.
Before starting this course, having an understanding of the basics of color management will be very useful. If you haven't yet viewed it, take a look at Color Management Fundamentals, presented by yours truly, here on the lynda.com online training library. All of the basic operations of putting a color work flow into place are explained here in detail. For color fundamental separate from any software applications, Foundations of Color with Mary Jane Begin, teaches how color influences our reception images, and for example, how complimentary colors can help to create harmony in an image.
For Photoshop and Lightroom users, understanding the basics of color in these applications will make your edits and color decisions much better. I can recommend Photoshop CC Essential Training with Julieanne Kost as a perfect starting point for anyone somewhat new to Photoshop. Even experienced pros will learn watching Julieanne in action. For dealing with color specific issues take a look at Photoshop Color Correction Fundamentals with Taz Tally. Lastly for Lightroom five users, Optimizing Your Photos hosted by Tim Gray teaches many valuable methods for dealing with color while in the Lightroom develop module.
Having a basic understanding in these areas will help you get the most out of this course
