Spent 3 hours today exploring colour and Photoshop's inability to deal with it correctly. As always and inspiring and enlightening session.
Ian is a former University lecturer from RMIT, who created Lobster, a tool/plugin designed to overcome Photoshops poor handling of perceptual colour. He sells his plugin from his website, and at the very least you need to, read his introductory notes to appreciate the issues involved.The 2 main things that I took from the session were,
- There is a plugin available on the CS3 install disk that helps get around the issues, provided yo know what and how to do it, it is called HSBHSL.
- That people, "generally" are not investing the energy and interest in their won images because tools like Photohsop have democratised the process, and made it too simple.
