Graphic arts imaging encompasses capturing images by sampling the source color space, processing pixels for monitor display and converting pixels as colorant amounts for hard copy output. Unfortunately, key color management concepts as well as tools used in color management implementation are not well understood. Industry personnel are often confused or lost in color management jungle.

To balance between color theory and hands-on color management practice, RIT’s School of Print Media embarked on a research project to learn and to demonstrate the use of color management to achieve predictable color. The result is an annual publication, Test Targets.

The Webinar presentation will describe how Test Targets got started as a class project in 2002, how contents of each issue are created, what approaches are taken to make it a reality, highlights of past issues of Test Targets and what students, faculty, and industry professionals think about the value of this publication. The presentation will conclude with an update on the Test Target 8.0 journey.
