Color Management is often considered a science, but has many applied aspects, and even a few artistic functions. This lecture will compare and contrast affordable color management’s practical commercial side with the science behind it, and the art its used to create. Examples from the product line David Tobie was worked to create will provide opportunities to describe the relationship of these products to color science, optics, and industry standards, as well as mass production, fast changing commercial markets, and demanding but non-scientific end users.
