Chapter 11. COLOR MANAGEMENT

Chapter 11. COLOR MANAGEMENT

I remember when my family bought our first color television set. Back in those days there weren't many programs broadcast in color. So color was a strange and mysterious thing. No one in the family understood how it worked. We didn't know how to make the pictures look realistic. We jumped up to change the image whenever we changed channels. Basically we spent most of our time fiddling with the TV controls rather than just watching the shows. Or if we couldn't get acceptable color, we watched black and white programs.

Well, that's a lot like managing color today in desktop publishing. Not many people understand how to manage it. They don't know what the best look should be. They don't know how to control images from different applications. Basically they spend most of their time fiddling with the controls. Or, if they can't deal with color management, they do nothing.

The truth is that color is an extremely deep and complex subject—far too deep for the scope of this book. In this chapter I give you some basic steps to use InDesign to manage color.
