Colour Imaging With Confidence

A leading independent colour management and digital imaging specialist has announced the availability of 'Seeing The Light' a free educational paper which provides a comprehensive introduction to the importance of light and shade as part of an accurate colour management workflow.
It discusses the importance of introducing a consistent light source to the workflow, in order to achieve total accuracy when it comes to assessing final proofs and outlines the various ways of achieving this.
In addition, it takes a look at how adding a monitor hood can shield unwanted light from the working environment so that what is seen on the display is free from distractions and irregular light levels, making it as colour accurate to the eye as it can be.
The newly published document is the latest addition to Colour Confidence's already comprehensive online 'Learning Centre' archive, which offers a wealth of free information on every aspect of colour management.
This includes easy to follow guides to digital photography, monitor comparisons, top tips from the professionals, video tutorials and much more.
"The publication of our 'Light and Shade' document is just the latest in an ongoing series of educational materials that we have made freely available," commented Simon Prais, Technical Director of Colour Confidence.
"Our 'Learning Centre' is dedicated to providing easy to follow advice, tips and tutorials and is another example of our commitment to offering our blend of expertise, know-how and support to anybody interested in learning more about the importance of colour management," he said.
'Seeing The Light' is available as a free download from the Colour Confidence website, simply visit
