Common misconceptions about color management systems

Nowadays, color management is becoming more and more popular in the printing industry. However, in reality, many users will make mistakes of one kind or another because of improper use. Here are some examples of frequent mistakes that have been made and explained to you.

Missed one: color management system is software

The color management system (CMS) is more than just software. The broad sense of color management includes operating systems that support color management (such as Apple Computer and Microsoft Windows, etc.), color management software (or Color Management Module-CMM), device profile, and application software (supporting color management , such as Photoshop5, Freehand8, QuarkXpress4, etc.), as well as all the hardware devices involved in the production process, such as computers, color screens, printers, printers, and instruments for measuring color. An effective color management system should include a color management process plan in addition to the tools.

Myth 2: The color management system is only used by large companies

Color management systems do not necessarily require huge investments. Now a complete set of color management tools can be from tens of thousands of Hong Kong dollars to several hundred thousand dollars. The tools of tens of thousands of dollars and the tools of tens of thousands of yuan do not necessarily have great differences in the quality of color management.

Fallacy 3: Color management is not in line with traditional printing

Color management can not only be published on the desktop but can also be combined with traditional printing. Although it is relatively easy to publish color management at the table, as long as the traditional equipment is controlled and standardized, it can be manufactured as a characteristic file for traditional equipment and thus integrated into color management.

Fallacy 4: Color management is only used by experts

There are color management tools for professional users in the market, and tools for general users. Usually color management tools are accompanied by instructions, users follow the guidelines to gradually learn and learn from experience, but also can successfully carry out color management.

Fallacy 5: Color management is just a theory, impractical

Although an open architecture color management system has been available for only a few years, knowledge has been developed for decades. The color management software can be used in conjunction with actual work and is well-designed. In the past few years, there are also some magazines that report real cases and prove their color. Management is realistic.

Fallacy 6: There is no big difference in all color management software

Although most color management software supports ICC, they can be very different. First, the color management software may have different precision. For example, when manufacturing a feature file, some software only uses dozens of colors, and some use thousands of colors. Second, color management software can use different methods for color conversion. Third, the efficiency of the software, some software packages choose a special location for color conversion, the purpose is to increase work efficiency. Fourth, some software packages are used by experts or researchers. There are more and more complex settings. Some are designed for general users and are easier to operate.

Fallacy 7: The characteristic file is eternal

A profile is a representation of how a device handles color. After a period of time, the performance of the device changes due to getting old, so it is necessary to re-establish its profile for the device on a regular basis. The old feature files can be cleared to avoid confusion.

Fallacy 8: Color management is like a magic wand that can copy colors 100%

Color management is not magic, and the color of the original must not be copied 100% (assuming the original and the copy are different media). However, through color screens, color management can give the user a look for color proofing (Softproofing), and it is also very important for the company that color management ensures consistent results for each production.

Fallacy 9: Color Management Improves Device Performance

Color management simply calibrates the device and characterizes the required device to perform color conversion on the color management module (CMM). Color management just makes the device work properly and output accurate color, and can not make the device output beyond its color range.
