what is colour management

Do you need colour management? If you deal with the assessment or editing of images on-screen, you certainly do. Perhaps have a look here colour management, why me?

Ideally, set up right, colour management should be an invisible helper. Like the computerised engine system of a modern car, if you understand its function and appreciate that it's important enough to keep well maintained, that's enough.
Some basic understanding of colour management, as it applies to daily work, can also be very valuable; but you don't need to swallow the entire pill, it's too big to swallow whole anyway.

As imaging evolves and printing improves, the quality of archives will inevitably be increasingly important perhaps because of future repurposing of images. Quality is our business. Unfortunately, whilst working hard to earn a living, using internet forums and websites in an attempt to come to terms with the concepts of colour management and the way it protects image quality is a bewildering experience for many users.
