Colour Management Tips For Retouching - Quick tip to help you with colour management to ensure colours are correct when retouching.
For this reason, when retouching photographs, it is essential to prepare a 5000 K work environment that accords with these standards. Also, you should always embed the profile when saving a file so that the colours of the image can be accurately conveyed right through to the back-end of the process.
So, remember to: make the monitor setting 5000 K, check images under the correct kind of fluorescent lighting, print with the right printer setting and embed the Adobe RGB or sRGB profile (depending on what you're using) when saving files.
