Colour Management – Thursday 9th April

Peter Lovelock will be presenting an  overview of colour workflow with emphasis on ensuring your monitor and capture devices deliver the best colour with the least stress; ultimately leading to a simple screen to print match.

This will help to answer those questions as to why do the colours look different between your screen and the projector, or look totally different when you print them off.

Peter works for Colour Confidence and their site should give you some insight into the products and tools that can be used.
