MDIA 1144 - Practical Color Management

Media Communications Part-time Studies Course

School of Business

Course Details

This course takes a practical approach to real world colour management implementation for common devices including iPhones, iPads, laptops, desktop monitors, and inkjet printers. You will use X-rite Display Pro’s and X-rite Color Munki devices to profile both displays and printers. You will explore the basics of colour theory, how to apply ICC Profiles to achieve colour accurate results in your workflows, and simulate a proofing or printing process on screen and on a local inkjet printer. You will use standard software, such as Photoshop, Acrobat, and InDesign on Windows or Macintosh.
