It's a beautiful Spring day here in the DC area. Perfect for Baseball (if we had a team). Let's go O's! It's also time to prepare for the next Triple Crown! Make sure you have all your trackside remotes and cables ready to go. The Derby is just around the corner, then here in Baltimore for the Preakness Stakes, then to New York for the Belmont Stakes. I'm looking forward to seeing many of you at all three events!

Color Management problems gotcha in a tizzy? Read this … every graphics professional worth his or her salt knows the importance of color management. No matter how much thought artist and client put into the color scheme for a given project, all of that work is for naught if you can't get your results to match your expectations. Enter Real World Color Management.

In this industrial-strength, under-the-hood reference, authors Bruce Fraser, Fred Bunting, and Chris Murphy draw on their years of professional experience to show you everything you need to know about color management. Whether your final destination is print, Web, or film, Real World Color Management takes the mystery out of color management, covering everything from color theory and color models to understanding how devices interpret and display color. You will find expert advice for building and fine-tuning color profiles for input and output devices (digital cameras and scanners, displays, printers, and more), selecting the right color management workflow, and managing color within and across major design applications. Get Real World Color Management--and get ready to dazzle! 600 pages...$49
