Color Management is a hot topic for designers and photographers. From ICC profiles to monitor calibration tools, color consistency and accuracy are crucial to reproducing your digital photographs in true colors. Color management can seem overwhelming, so we thought you would appreciate this four part series by Jay Kinghorn.

Kinghorn covers the role of color management, how ICC-based color management works, choosing monitors and editing software, output profiles and more at great depth without becoming overwhelming.

  1. Sorry my comment is not about flipbooks though i LOVE them and will be making some soon when i check out

    What i wanted to know was how i could rotate a picture at an angle – so not flip it to the left/up/down, but have it slanting/inclined? Thanks

  2. You probably can’t do it in the software but, if you have photoshop or something similar, make a flipped version of your file there, and import it already prepared.

  4. iPhoto has a straighten function under the edit function that permits rotating an image up to 10 degrees plus and minus.

    That gives you some ability although not as much as Photoshop or another image editor.

  5. Doing my first photo book and I shoot raw, most of the images were processed as Colormatch tiffs and converted to srgb jpgs. Recently switched to using Adobe 98. And have added a few shots for my book. Do I need to have them all be the same colorspace and then convert to srgb? I think I know the answer, just hate to reprocess them all as Adobe 98s, which I’m preferring for it’s larger colorspace.

  6. Thanks for the info and for the links to the very helpful Kinghorn articles. Even though I haven’t mastered color management yet, I was still quite pleased with Blurb’s color printing. The colors in my first book turned out close to what I wanted, only darker, so that’s my next problem to solve.
