Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Linux color management has the same goal as the color management systems for other operating systems: to achieve the best possible color reproduction throughout an imaging workflow from its source, onto imaging software and finally its output. In particular, color management attempts to support WYSIWYG on-screen previewing ability for color work such as retouching prior to printing. Note that in practice, best is determined according to some algorithm and may not correspond well to what a human eye would consider best. Linux color management relies on the use of accurate International Color Consortium profiles describing the behavior of devices such as digital cameras, monitors or printers, and color-managed applications that are aware of these profiles. These applications perform gamut conversions between device profiles and color spaces. Gamut conversions, based on accurate device profiles, are the essence of color management.show more
