Thinking Outside the Color Profiling Capture Box

Color-capture systems use color-correction processing operations to deliver expected results in the saved image files. For cultural heritage imaging projects, establishing and monitoring such operations are important when meeting imaging requirements and guidelines. To reduce unwanted variations, it is common to evaluate imaging performance, and adjust hardware and software settings. In most cases these include the use of ICC Color profiling software and supporting measurements. While advice on the subject by experts can be deftly persuasive, discussions of color goodness for capture are clouded by many imaging variables. This makes claims of a single, color-profiling approach or engine moot in the context of a greater workflow environment. We suggest looking outward and considering alternative profiling practices and evaluation methods that could improve color image capture accuracy and consistency.
