BASIC COLOR CORRECTION & IMAGE RENDERING

 

 

 

Now that we have looked at how to calibrate and profile our displays and how color works in Adobe Photoshop and Lightroom, we are at a good point to discuss some basic strategies and techniques in color correcting our images. In this chapter we will discuss color correction philosophies. (Are you surprised that there are color correction philosophies?) Specifically, we will look at the ideas of trusting what you see on your display versus using the RGB (or CMYK) numbers. Then we will go into Photoshop and Lightroom and review their basic color-correction tools. Finally, we will end the chapter with a discussion of rendering our images with specific looks and styles.
