By David Harradine

The first rule of colour management is that no two devices are the same, no two monitors, printers, scanners or digital cameras will produce the same colour from the same signal out of the box, they all have their own unique finger print.

In this article David Crowther looks at the myths and misconceptions about simulating daylight that everyone involved in evaluating colour should know.

Daylight simulation – is it necessary for colour evaluation?
By David Crowther

Why do we need to consider daylight when evaluating colour? Quite simply because daylight renders colour accurately. Even though natural daylight changes throughout the day, together with changes in the weather, a need to simulate daylight does exist.

ISO Graphics Standards - can they help us?  In the world of creativity, we may think that standardisation will only put a lid on ideas and concepts. But looked at from another angle, we see that to a certain extent, standards have a marked influence on everything around us and what we do.
