  • Color management

    I know this is a huge area to cover but I'd really appreciate some help here.
    I have 9 macs (6 desktops and 3 powerbooks) all running Panther 10.3.9 with a mix of CRT and flatscreen displays, a RICHO color laser printer and a HP bw laser printer in my studio. We have no color management workflow at all and this obviously leads to huge inconsistencies when printing from various computers or applications.
    We produce a wide range of materials from books, posters, brochures, newsletters and manuals, to CDs, software packaging, and promotional goods using InDesign 2, Photoshop 7 and Illustrator 10.
    Could anyone give me some sort of idea on how to go about properly setting up a color management system so whichever mac I print from I'll get reasonably similar results?
    I'm guessing I should go to colorsync, input settings and apply colorsync workflow in all of my applications, but which settings should I be using to set up colorsync? Also, should I try to calibrate each monitor (I have no professional way to do this) or use a single generic profile for all?
    Also, when opening documents should I convert profiles or keep embedded ones?
    Any help would really be appreciated since I obviously have no idea about color management! Sorry.

    This is nice but If it's background will be white then it's looks more attractive I think.

    Hi!

    I like the second image -- but I'd get rid of her ear, it's not necessary and kind of distracting. And I'd pull the green overlay all the way up, her hairline at the top also draws the...
