4.0 out of 5 stars A clear exposé of the science and concepts of color management, December 9, 2005
Understanding Color Management explains the basics of color, and the methodology of ICC profiles which the ICC (International Color Consortium) has developed to allow colors to be reproduced with fidelity by computing devices.

All the basic procedures of calibrating screen and profiling devices are explained. However, this book is written by somebody who understands both physics and computers, and it goes further than any other basic text in showing how the pieces of ICC color management fit together, and what goes on behind the scenes. The word "Understanding" in the title is indeed appropriate.

If you are a photographer and you need a hands-on tutorial to ICC Color Management, then Andrew Rodney's howto book may be best for you. If you need a reference for daily use in prepress, then you should own a copy of Bruce Fraser's text. But if what you want is to really undersand the how and the why, then Abhay Sharma's clearly written and concise textbook is the one you want.

Get Andrew Rodney's book, and a copy of Real World Color Management, and you'll have the best existing CMS tutorial and the the best reference text.
