Pigment to Print: Accurate Color in the World of Art Reproduction

In a world of instant sharing of imagery, the need for the faithful reproduction of works of cultural heritage for the future becomes ever more important. Works of art have been created with every imaginable pigment and material, and reproducing them accurately presents a significant challenge. Learn the necessary steps — setting up color management, capturing a target, profiling a camera, editing an image, profiling a printer, and making a print — that make any subject look its best. In this session, Christopher Campbell and Franz Herbert will show procedures and workflow that will benefit not just Vermeer and Monet, but every photograph you take!

Tuesday, 9:40 – 10:40 a.m.
Brunch with the Standards Gurus

A great deal of work goes into the development of standards that are applicable to the graphic arts industry. But once these standards are accepted, not everyone agrees on which are most important, how they are best implemented—or whether they even need to be implemented. In this lively panel discussion, Don Schroeder will host a lively panel of distinguished standards gurus where they will discuss today’s trends, technologies, and standards development, and how it will affect color management in the future.
