This class is subject to our New Set Your Tuition Experiment*

or registor by phone 650 355-7507

Join us for a one-day in-depth exploration of Color Management theory and practice. This seminar is designed to get you comfortable with the concepts and architecture of color management and build practical experience methods for using profiles for monitor display and in printing. Monitor calibration and print profiles will be explained and you will have hands-on experience making both.

As each workstation has it’s own printer, spectrophotometer and profiling system, making it possible to demonstrate a fully color managed system during the course of the day.

By printing profiling targets ahead of time you can also profile your own printers, making the class a real bargain. 

You will leave with a good understanding of the why and how without feeling like you have to be a color scientist.

Registration fee must be paid in full to secure a spot in the class.


Topics Include:

  • Demystify Color Management

  • Learn about Color Spaces: Adobe RGB, ProPhoto RGB, sRGB

  • Make Profiles for your own printers

Bring your own laptop, new fee structure, what can you afford?

New Set Your Tuition Experiment*

* In certain classes where individual printers or workstations do not need to be provided, our overhead and class size limitations are not as restricted. We have long considered how to make such classes as inexpensive as possible. Consequently we are experimenting with a new fee structure of paying whatever tuition you can afford with a traditional fee listed. This seminar style class is offered under this experiment. Minimum enrollment numbers will still have to be met to run the class.
