Integrated Color Management
Take Your Color Knowledge to the Max
Beyond RGB workflows, as a color professional you also need to understand how to get the most out of color RIPs and CMYK workflows. This enables you to achieve “Color As You Imagined It”, regardless of how the images were captured or what output method is used.
Offered in conjunction with X-Rite’s Introduction to Color Management two-day course, this course will round out your color knowledge, beginning with the basics and moving into advanced coursework to meet the needs of attendees at all levels. As an added bonus, the course includes color vision analysis and testing for X-Rite Color Management certification.
- A small classroom of six to eight attendees guarantees individual attention for optimum learning.
- Hands-on workshops with the latest X-Rite color measurement instruments, profiling software and a variety of large format printers helps you determine if additional investments will make your color life easier.
- During the course, you will immediately use and reinforce new knowledge to build and create profiles.
- Take advantage of the opportunity to leave the course with an X-Rite Color Management certification.
- Learn exactly how you perceive color, and if you have any color vision issues, by taking the included Farnsworth Munsell 100 Hue Test.
