serves as a comprehensive guide to the
implementation of the ICC (International Color Consortium) profile
specification, widely used for maintaining color fidelity across
multi-media imaging devices and software. The book draws together
many of the White Papers produced by the ICC to promote the use of
color management and disseminate good practice; the ICC
specification has become widely accepted within the color industry,
and these papers have been updated, expanded and edited for this
collection. Other chapters comprise material that will go on to
form future ICC White Papers, as well as some original content. The
ICC review process ensures that the material and recommendations
included are collaborative, reflecting the input of the wide
community of color and imaging scientists and developers who make
up its membership. Readers can be assured of the best advice for
achieving optimum results.
- Provides an overview of color management in applications and
the role of ICC profiles in a color reproduction system.
- Presents user guidelines on color measurement procedures and
discusses measurement issues for media such as optically-brightened
papers and inkjet prints.
- Offers comprehensive guidance on the latest version of the
specification and the application of the perceptual rendering
intent with its reference gamut.
- Examines the construction and benefits of different types of
ICC profiles, and sets out compliance test considerations,
implementation notes and evaluation of profile quality.
- Includes a glossary of terms.
This book is written for color and imaging scientists
developing, implementing and using color management systems within
a range of imaging devices and software. Senior undergraduate and
postgraduate students will also find the book of use.
