Color Management Systems

Color management systems combine the metrics created us-ing device-independent color representations with the colorreproduction principles described in Chapter 5. First hinted at in the late 1970s and then demonstrated in the 1980s, deviceindependent color management is now an established commercial domain, with support in both Microsoft and Apple operating systems. This is the last of the five color reproduction chapters. It provides a description of color management systems, the principles behind them, and some examples of their application.
