What is colour management?

For photographers and videographers, it is often difficult to make prints which correspond with what you see on the screen and to make images which correspond with what you have recorded with your camera. With colour management, you ensure that colours are displayed on all your devices in the same way, that you use the correct colours and that they look the same on your monitor as on the final print.

Why do I need a device for colour management?

Simply put, to ensure that your photos and videos have the correct colours and that the colours are consistent throughout your whole workflow. With the colour management solutions from X-Rite, you have control over your colour workflow and your colours are exactly as you want them everywhere.

There are three important steps to this:

Recording | Editing | Printing


RECORDING

Colour management already begins with the first recording

How do I ensure the correct colours in my work?

Make sure that from the very first click your camera records the colours accurately. The X-Rite ColorChecker-series offers the right tools for every situation. Whether you are photographing inside or outside, as soon as you have prepared the shot and the lighting, you place the ColorChecker in the frame for the first recording. If you then begin editing your series of recordings, you use the free ColorChecker Camera Calibration Software in order to make a colour profile on the basis of that first recording with the ColorChecker. In this way, you can synchronise the colour settings for all the images in the series (if the recordings were made under exactly the same conditions and with the same lighting). The software uses the colour samples from the ColorChecker in order to calculate a neutral and accurate colour profile that you can use in your editing software.

ColorChecker

There are various colour cards available for various situations and subjects. X-Rite offers 14 different ColorCheckers, from macro to aerial photography.

What are the advantages of a ColorChecker?

Before and after calibration

Here you can see a comparison of an image with and an image without the use of the ColorChecker. On the left, no colour correction has been applied and on the right the colours have been corrected with the use of a ColorChecker. This saves you a lot of time during the editing process, so that you can focus on the fun parts of your work.

Grey card

Grey cards are especially developed for consistent recordings and colours in video productions, films and photos. The neutral grey surface of the card is spectrally neutral (reflects the same amounts of red, blue and green) and offers an accurate neutral reference at the beginning of each photo session.

Just as with the ColorChecker, you can use the free ColorChecker Camera Calibration Software for the image quality and white balance in the post-editing process. X-Rite offers grey cards in various sizes and with different grey percentages. We also have a special 3-step grey card for vidoegraphers. X-Rite also offers a special white balance card.

 


EDITING

The monitor is the heart of the colour workflow

How does colour management work on a monitor?

If a monitor has not been calibrated properly, you cannot rely on what you see. The colours do not correspond with what you saw during the photo session and the prints do not correspond with what you see on the monitor. Did you know that the light conditions of your workplace, bright colours in your field of vision (such as the colour of the wall and your desk) and the setting angle of your monitor also determine how you perceive colours on the screen? It is therefore important to adjust your monitor properly.

How does a calibration system work?

If you want to display consistent colours on your screen, with a device for display calibration (a colour meter from the X-Rite i1Display-series), you can make a colour profile and save it in the display settings of your monitor. In this way, you ensure that your photos are displayed properly during the post-editing process and that when printing you do not encounter any unpleasant surprises. The calibration solutions from X-rite have technologically very advanced filters and optical systems, fast measuring speeds and a perfect colour accuracy. In this way, you know for sure that you really see what the final result will be.

Tip: All the monitors must be calibrated regularly in order to make a correct colour profile on the basis of the surrounding lighting and the brightness and the contrast of the screen. Monitor parameters are constantly changing: the monitor is switched on and off, heats up and cools down and laptop screens lose their original colours because they are taken everywhere. It is therefore important to recalibrate your monitor every 4 to 6 weeks.

 


PRINTING

From digital files to paper

How do I ensure the correct colours in my prints?

Photographers can also make adjusted colour profiles for their printers. You then no longer need to make many endlessly unnecessary test prints. In this way, you save precious time and you prevent material wastage. The X-Rite i1Studio is a spectrophotometer with which you make adjusted colour profiles for prints which are saved in the management programme of your printer. The X-Rite i1Studio uses an intelligent iterative profiling technology which ensures that your output always has the right colours, with perfect tints, highlights and shades. Save the profiles in your printer programme and select the correct profile for the print. With adjusted printer profiles for various types of paper (such as gloss and matt) and paper thicknesses, you obtain the best results.
