The focus of the workshop will be to explain what a color profile is and why it is so important to the print quality and monitor output. Topics for discussion include the importance of calibrating your monitor with a quality profiling device, why custom paper profiles are better than manufacturers generic profiles and what the difference is between the various color spaces we use in photography i.e. sRGB, Adobe RGB (1998) and ProPhoto RGB. Some equipment review will also be included such as calibration devices, monitors and printers.
