Review questions

Q1: What does the color management engine do?
A1: The color management engine translates colors from the color space of one device to another device's color space by a process called color mapping.
Q2: What is calibration?
A2: Calibration is the process of setting a device to known color conditions.
Q3: What is characterization?
A3: Characterization, or profiling, is the process of creating an ICC profile that describes the unique color characteristics of a particular device. You should always calibrate a device before creating a profile for it.
Q4: What are the four main monitor settings you adjust when you run the Adobe Gamma utility, and why do you adjust them?
A4: Using Adobe Gamma, you adjust the brightness and contrast, phosphors (color characteristics), gamma (color contrast), and white point (extreme highlight) of the monitor. You adjust these settings to calibrate your monitor. Adobe Gamma uses those settings to create an ICC monitor profile that defines your monitor's color space for working on graphics.
