Another week brings another great class on CreativeLive. This time NYC portrait and fashion photographer Lindsay Adler will take you through all the essential things you need to know to light, photograph and retouch skin. This will include utilizing the ColorChecker Passport to achieve accurate skin tones and of course the importance on monitor calibration.

From the class description page:

“Capturing beautiful skin tones is essential to the success of any portrait, yet skin is notoriously difficult to photograph and retouch. Skin comes in all colors, tones, and textures — each requiring different treatment.

Learn how to handle your subject’s skin and add polish to all of your portraits. In this course, Lindsay Adler will take you through the essentials of understanding, lighting, photographing and retouching skin in all its variations.

Lay a strong foundation for a great shoot by learning easy make-up tips. Get an in-depth look at how light modifiers, reflectors, and direction of light impact the appearance of skin for both natural light and studio lighting. Learn advanced color calibration and color correction. Master setting up your camera to capture accurate color and when to modifying in post-production to get ideal skin representation.

Lindsay will teach you how to work with a variety of skin textures and tones – whether the skin is very pale, extremely dark, very oily, has extreme blemishes and much more. You’ll learn everything from how to photograph each type of skin to how to retouch these varieties in skin.”

Just like all the great classes on CreativeLive this one is going to be broadcast for free, so this valuable resource on one of the trickier parts of photography is not to be missed.

Color Perfection for Mobile Devices with NEW ColorTRUE

 

Download_on_the_App_Store_Badge_US-UK_135x40X-Rite has just announced the release of ColorTRUE, a color calibration app for mobile devices. ColorTRUE is a free app that provides accurate color viewing of images on tablets and phones for both iOS and Android devices. Download ColorTRUE on the Apple App Store and Google App Store.

ColorTRUEMany mobile devices have excellent viewing screens but calibrating and profiling them has been problematic in the past. ColorTRUE allows you to view your file on mobile devices with color accuracy to rival your desktop display, even if the file is preserved in large color spaces like ProPhoto RGB. Most mobile devices display pleasing color. However, as photographers we want to control the color accuracy of our image no matter what device we choose to use. Now you can use your mobile device to accurately display your images making it possible to carry your entire portfolio into a meeting.

The ColorTRUE app provides two key functions. The first is the ability to create a custom display profile for your device. The second is an “Image Gallery” where you can view your images with a high level of color accuracy. So whether you are viewing your image on your calibrated laptop, desktop or iPad – your images will have consistently accurate color.

ColorTRUE working

The calibration is very fast and easy and only requires a supported X-Rite measurement device to create the profile. For iOS devices simply connect a ColorMunki Display, ColorMunki Smile, i1Display Pro, or i1Pro 2 device to a computer on the same wireless network as your mobile device. Launch the app and watch as it “finds” the measurement device. Then simply place the measurement device on the face of your iPad or iPhone and watch the magic begin.

For Android just plug your ColorMunki Display or i1Display Pro directly into the Android mobile device using a USB to micro USB adapter, launch the app, and enjoy the process.

Either way it’s easy, fast, and transforms your tablet or phone into a color corrected viewing device that you can put into your pocket or bag and be assured that your images will look the way you intended them to look.

The ColorTRUE app allows for color corrected viewing of you images. And it also gives you lots of options that until now have not been available for mobile devices:

  • Before and After – toggle between calibrated and uncalibrated images.
  • Ambient Light Compensation – accurately view images in different lighting conditions.
  • Print Simulation – preview your images with printer profile and rendering intent for “soft proofing” functionality.
  • Image Profile – easily reassign working color spaces (sRGB, Adobe RGB, or ProPhoto RGB)
  • White Point Selection – for optimal tablet-to-desktop match, choose between D65, D50, and native

 

Look For Other ColorTRUE Aware Apps

Unlike laptop or desktop operating systems, iOS and Android operating systems do not have system wide color management capabilities. This means that when you create a profile in ColorTRUE your other apps do not automatically see it. To solve this, X-Rite is offering a ColorTRUE Aware partner program to provide other app developers access to your ColorTRUE profile. You only have to create the profile in ColorTRUE and it will automatically be applied to any ColorTRUE Aware app that has integrated our free SDK (software developers kit). So help us spread the word by telling your favorite app developers you want them to be ColorTRUE Aware! Find out more at www.xritephoto.com/colortrueSDK.

ColorTRUE – it’s free, it’s accurate, its what you’ve been waiting for. Download ColorTRUE on the Apple App Store and Google App Store. Try it out for yourself today. And tell us what you think about new X-Rite ColorTRUE.

Known Issues:
•    Monitor calibration does not work when multiple monitors are in mirror mode (this issue affects Windows® installations only.)  Special Note: On Windows XP, if a display is removed from a system, the operating system will put the primary display in mirror mode even though the secondary display has been removed. In this case, the user will get an enumeration error. This error can be dismissed and the user will still be able to make a profile.
•    Windows 7 and Vista only – During monitor profile creation, you may see a message stating that the display’s color scheme is being changed. This is temporary to allow proper in-screen measurement. The display will be restored to its previous state after the measurements are completed.
•    You may not be able to load display LUTs if you are running Windows on a MacOS system using Parallels Desktop® or similar software.
•    The application may lose its connection to the ColorMunki Display if the computer goes into sleep or hibernate mode. If this happens, disconnect and reconnect the device to restore the connection.
•    The ColorMunkiDisplayTray application looks for connected displays when it launches. If you disconnect or connect a display, the tray will not see the change until it is re-launched or the system is restarted.
