Digital Color Correction Reviews
If you are looking for an advanced book, this is not the one. But if you are looking for an excellent introductory text, this is a suitable choice. The author does an excellent job of breaking down the theory and practice of color correction in the digital environment.
This book is really helpful for color correction. Designers must have this book. It is worth the money. Trust me.
Rivard provides practical advice for those who earn a living dealing with color correction as well as for novices who want to make their digital photos pop! Rivard has the gift of being able to explain complex subjects such as color theory in an easy to understand manner. In no time you'll be applying Rivard's Pyramid principle and saving time, while increasing productivity and output. This book is not a Photoshop tutorial, rather it focuses on the key fundamentals of what makes an image look good and then shows you how to accomplish that task in the least amount of time. The book is a must for print service providers who are constantly challenged with fixing problems with customer files.
This is a must read for anyone pursuing a career in preparing images for reproduction.
Rivard approaches this text book with a refreshing voice... the wealth of technical information is nicely balanced by a "friendly" tone and interesting examples. The author clearly understands the technology, and he clearly has a passion for sharing what he knows in practical, real world terms.
Reasonable introduction to digital retouching. A freshman course. The equipment shown is old and the reproduction does not show good color correction for reproduction. Not to say it is a useless book only that it is not for professionals. Professionals or serious students should look at Dan Margulis' books for advanced study.
