This chapter introduces the basic concepts of color management before looking at the color management interface in Photoshop and the various color management settings. Successful color management relies on use of profiles to describe the characteristics of each device, such as a scanner, and using a color management system to translate the profile data between each device in the chain. And with today’s web browsers, color management can sometimes be turned on to take full advantage of the enhanced color control these programs can now offer. The objective of profiled color management is to use the measured characteristics of everything involved in the image editing workflow, from capture through to print, to reliably translate the color at each stage of the process. There are many other Photoshop users and color labs operating from the Jurassic era, who are running outputs from files with Photoshop color management switched off and who are not bothering to calibrate their displays properly either.
