Matching Color Across Different Print Processes

Secrets Revealed at 11th Annual Color Management Conference<
Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, November 20, 2009 -- This year's Printing Industries of America Color Management Conference will be particularly valuable to companies struggling to match colors printed on different substrates, using different processes. The Conference, now in its 11th year, takes place December 6-8 in Phoenix, Arizona.

The pre-Conference seminar, "Printing Across Different Printing Processes," will address best practices in applying color management to get the closest match possible with different presses and processes. Attendees will learn about how to handle situations and colors that pose specific problems, and how close of a match can be achieved when comparing pieces printed by sheetfed offset, flexography, electrophotography, and images appearing on websites.

To demonstrate the challenges and possibilities, a fake product and marketing campaign based on Cowboy Wine ("the only wine man enough for cowboys") was produced in advance. Campaign components include a wine label, magazine ad, promotional poster, tri-fold table advertisement, and website. All will be displayed at the Conference and used during the presentations.

This year's Color Management Conference features over 60 sessions, six distinct tracks, a state-of-the-art computer lab, and a resource area with over 30 leading vendors of color management software and hardware. Content is available for those relatively new to color management, as well as to advanced practitioners.

For years, the Color Management Conference has provided attendees with advice and knowledge to better manage color. The event is presented in partnership with the Foundation of Flexographic Technical Association. Visit to review the complete program.

Tips for Family Photos & Holiday Photos From Sandisk

Take the best shots possible. Here's how:
Be the director you always wanted to be. Put the taller folks in back so they don’t block the rest of the group, and move people around for a nice even look. Seems obvious, but you’d be surprised how many people don’t think to direct their loved ones to get the best shot.
Remember, light is your friend. Turn on extra lights when shooting or filming indoors to help fill in the shadows and capture more dynamic color. And don’t forget to use a flash inside and out to get rid of red eyes.
Shoot more! Keep snapping shots until you get one where everyone looks good. Something kooky like, “Say stinky feet!” vs. “Say cheese” could be just the trick to get kids to truly smile. Don’t forget to look it over on your viewer before you call it a wrap.
