Practical Color Management

In his Practical Color Management and Printing Workshop, Mark DiLallo describes simple and concise best practices for a highly effective end-to-end color management workflow.  He uses extensive graphics to help you visualize key concepts.  You will gain the strong foundation you need to correctly calibrate your equipment, evaluate your software, and make good color setting choices for your workflow.

Both the lecture and Mark’s included 130+ page eBook cover three main areas:

• White Balance Color Correction

• Five Key Color Management Concepts

• Five Groups of Settings Critical to Success

 You will learn how to:

• Setup your own customized Color Managed Workflow

• Perform Everyday Tasks while maintaining faithful, consistent Colors

• Troubleshoot and eliminate any gross errors that may be totally corrupting the look of our monitor or printer output

• Maximize the color range, nuanced quality and consistency throughout your workflow—from your camera, to your monitors, to print & web

• Optimize your print success rate—saving time, cost, and frustration

• Realize the full capabilities of your equipment, software, and images now…and prepare for the full potential of new technologies in the future

 You will acquire a sound understanding of:

• White Balance and Color Temperature

• Color Models/Spaces/Profiles/Gamuts

• sRGB, AdobeRGB, ProPhotoRGB, and ICC Printer and Monitor Profiles

• Color Space Conversion (Rendering Intent)

• Monitor, Printer, and ColorChecker Camera Calibration

• Soft Proofing and Gamut Warnings

• How Paper choices effect Results

• Color in Windows XP/Vista/7/8 and Mac OS

• Setup examples in Photoshop, Lightroom, Capture NX, Web Browsers, Photomatix, Panorama Pro, and more will prepare you to interpret and set up color for just about any application or device

This comprehensive four hour workshop will have several breaks and Q&A opportunities.

The eBook is pdf file and looks great on a PC, Laptop, and iPad.  Prior to the class you will receive an email with a link that enables you to download the file via a right-click, save-as method.

    Thanks everyone for the kind comments. I really enjoyed meeting all of you. I'm glad to see the course and eBook making an impact. Gary, I will add Aperture to the next update of the eBook/course...thanks for your suggestion...I will send you a copy when it's ready.

    Excellent value for money. Glad I read (or at least browsed) the e-book beforehand. Mark's explanation and willingness to answer questions of all levels made the theory much easier to understand. I found the 0-255 "bar" analogy and the paint store color mixing parallel extremely helpful in understanding color spaces. Thank you.

    The class on color management was exactly what I hoped it would be. It was a lot of material to take in; however, Mark made the concepts very easy to understand. His book will be a great post-meetup reference.

    very helpful, but wish Mark was more familiar with Aperture...while some of the material translates to most processing systems, not all do...and Aperture is widely enough used that it would make sense to include it.

    So glad I signed up for this workshop. Mark is very knowledgable on this complex topic, but was able to put it into layman's terms. I walked away feeling much less confused about color management. I recommend this workshop to anybody who is confused/frustrated over the different color profiles and settings on their computers, cameras, printers, etc.

    Excellent instructional event today, thank you. As Dan wrote, Mark DiLallo really knows his stuff and his teaching style made the at times complex material quite accessible. The ebook is excellent, too. Attending this seminar gave me a useful head start for getting into the book.

    Do we need to bring anything other than note paper and pen ? .. laptop, camera ???

    March 8, 2014

    • Denise

      You can bring a laptop if you would like help setting up. You may also consider snacks or a bag lunch. However there is also a restaurant where you can order something should you need. But we will not be taking a long break so snacks or sandwich might be better.

    exactly what I need, unfortunately I will be traveling on business that weekend. Hopefully it goes well enough that you schedule a second one and I will be able to make a different date.

  • Gary K.

    Will his setup examples include printing from Aperture?

    February 21, 2014

    • Denise

      Mark will cover the theory, computer profiles, printer profiles and how to get what you see on screen out of your printer. The description is pretty detailed and Mark is very very knowledgeable on this topic. He will be able to help with Aperture, LR and photoshop setup and soft proofing.
