Paper Abstract

As we witness the coming to maturity of color management technology, questions still remain: have we really solved the big problem of color use on the computer? Is the current solution in the right solution? What are the real obstacles in making computerized color work productive? Color fidelity between devices has been (still is?) a big problem and much effort and progress has been made towards solving it. Are there other problems with color work on the computer? For most people using color is difficult. Instead of being easier, working with color on the computer is more arduous and complex than when using traditional methods. How can we make working with color less of an effort and more enjoyable for computer users? What are the obstacles preventing computer developers from doing this? How do we really empower computer color users? By transforming the way that color work is done: redefine the place color takes in computer systems, provide real tools to manage color work, and provide tools that make computerized color work natural, creative and satisfying.
