Simple Color Management

Leave it to John Paul Caponigro to craft a really great blog post that simplifies a complex digital imaging issue. This topic is color management—something I know all about, as I have fought with it since I first put my pictures on a computer in the 1990s. (Actually, that's not quite true. I messed around for a decade before I started to learn the importance of color management.) Anyway, Mr. Caponigro's post is a simple one: Six things you can do to ensure you've got good color management. Calibrate your monitor, make sure Photoshop's settings are working for you, and generally do these simple things that will help preserve good quality color control throughout your digital workflow. And do it now. No need to wait for a decade to go by before you learn the importance of color management too.
