Hi guys and gals,
Recently this topic has become hot again on POTN. I have tried to read as many thread related to CM as possible, including the link in Rene's sig, but remain just as confused if not more (I must admit I'm not the smartest in my class).
So to approach this CM thingy, I thought I should start from higher level, slowly moving down to the details to help me understand. Let me begin with a simple question....
In the current computer world, we have CM applications as well as non-CM applications. A photo's colors is "likely" to render differently between the two, as expected. The question is, is my effort wasted when i spend all the money and time to get nice monitor, calibrator, Photoshop to achieve the most accurate colors of my photo but my friends and family view it on a non-CM application such as Internet Explorer? If the answer is no, please help correct my understanding.
Hopefully your help can reduce not only 1, but more than 1, confused soul as far as Color Management is concerned. More people undestand CM, more help will be available, more good karma spread around. I sincerely appreciate your help and patient in advance.
