    Fine Art Workflow Triage—Helping a Photographer Master Process Color

    Thanks, Tom. No hurry. This is an evolving issue. We've recently been able to get the photographer to lower his film speed down from 800, which was giving us an awful grain; to get rid of a set of mismatched lights that gave us green and pink casts in the same images; and to not crop out the...

    Fine Art Workflow Triage—Helping a Photographer Master Process Color

    Thanks for the comments, Tom. Images have come to me tagged with various RGB profiles. The current project has 28 Pro Photos in 16 bit and two Adobe RGB in 8 bit.

    Thanks, Sam. My post seem to be appearing in a printable view as soon as I hit post new thread. No idea. I've used multiple browsers, but no go. Apologies for the inconveniences.

    Hello—long time user/book designer

    Hi. I've been a Photoshop user since v3.X, but have primarily focused on basic color work for print. I hope to increase my knowledge on particular subjects, and also add to discussions if I can. Cheers.
