Colour Collective launch course - Colour Collective have launched a new Introduction Colour Management Course for photographers.
Colour Management specialists The Colour Collective are launching a new Introduction to Colour Management classroom-based course that aims to provide trainees with the knowledge and skills to colour manage their own workflows.
Created and led by Technical Director Rob Griffith, each course will be held at Apple Computer¹s UK HQ near Heathrow in their fully equipped training centre that includes individual workstations for every attendee. The first two courses will be held on Wednesday 19th September and Wednesday 21st November. Places are limited to only nine per course to ensure that every
attendee gets the most out of it. The course contents are completely non-platform specific and therefore will be as useful to Windows-users and Apple Mac users alike.
The course is aimed at digital photographers, designers and pre-press professionals, or anybody else that routinely works with colour and colour images on either Mac or PC. The course will cover:
- Colour Management Theory
- Monitor Calibration
- Adobe Photoshop Colour Settings
- Assigning & Converting Profiles in Photoshop
- Printer Profiling
- Printing & Soft Proofing in Photoshop
- Graphics Application Settings
- Creating a Colour Managed Workflow
- Q & A
The course will provide the necessary groundwork of theory while concentrating on practical exercises that include profile creation, implementation, setting up the colour management options in applications such as Adobe Photoshop and open discussions will cover common workflow issues.
Rob has previously run training courses for Gretag Macbeth, Canon Europe and The Royal Photographic Society, and has many years of colour management experience in a wide variety of different workflows and market sectors.
The course cost £125 plus VAT, or £195 plus VAT including an EyeOne Display monitor calibration solution normally £150 on its own. Bespoke on-site courses in almost any colour management solution are also available.
Rob Griffith commented, The success we've had running training courses for many of our corporate clients has proven that by empowering end-users to take control of their colour quality, companies can save both time and money, in addition to improving their end results.
Places on the course can be reserved at the company's recently re-launched website. The new website is dedicated to providing a wide range of colour management solutions, including the latest software and hardware, as well as offering free advice and information about colour management.
