Shutterbug Reviews i1Photo Pro 2 | Color Management for Better Image
by Brenda K. Hipsher – June 21st, 2013
David B. Brooks of Shutterbug has done an excellent review of X-Rite i1Photo Pro 2, the spectrophotometer solution for digital photographers. i1Photo Pro 2 provides calibration and profiling for monitors, projectors, printers, scanners, and cameras… all in one package giving you a complete color managed workflow from top to bottom.
Here’s just an excerpt of what David has to say, “Color management is important because of something called color device independence … Every color reproduction device made for use with personal computers produced different colors, and that remains true today … Color management is a system based on the ICC color standard that supports the measurement of the color reproduced by displays, scanners, printers, and digital cameras.” Be sure to read the entire article, “X-Rite i1Photo Pro 2: Color Management For Better Images,” for David’s complete summary of why color management is necessary. It’s concise and right on target.
David gives us a great run through of all the capabilities of i1Photo Pro 2. His point of view comes from his career in the photo industry and gives some great insights into not only how the system works but why it’s important at every turn. Be sure to read it all.
