Lesson 14. Ensuring Consistent Color > Setting up color management in InDesign

Setting up color management in InDesign

No mechanical device can produce the full range of color visible to the human eye: no monitor, film, printer, copier, or printing press. Each device has a specific capability, so that different devices make different kinds of compromises in reproducing color images. The unique color-rendering abilities of a specific output device are known collectively as its gamut or color space.

InDesign and other graphics applications, such as Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Illustrator, and others, use color numbers to describe the color of each pixel in an image. The color numbers correspond to the color model, such as the familiar RGB values for red, green, and blue or the CMYK values for cyan, magenta, yellow, and black.
