Forget your wimpy software sliders and palettes and widgets.

Attached see how separations are really done.

People today are probably scratching their heads, looking for the Rosetta Stone!

Oh, well... I found it today while Googling for information about gamut alarms (!!!)

http://www.wfschreiber.org/pageone.html

And scroll to the paper on Color Prepress Systems. Very technical stuff.

Schrieber knew Efi Arizi when Efi was at MIT, and contributed to some Scitex technology, most importantly in the Smart Scanner line.
I'm still trying to figure out how variations applications decide when a color is outside a gamut, especially if that application has no clue about the output device profile and things like paper stock. Know any color gurus?

Cool!! I met Bruce once or twice. Would love to pick his brain. All, of course, in the interests of furthering Open Source Software.

Heh. I wonder if he's read Margulis's new LAB book yet. I got it yesterday and on a quick skim it looks like a revolution in image correction. I hope to have time to digest it in the next year.

I'd love to hear Bruce's take on it...

I saw them debate at Seybold a couple of years ago. Barely a spark flew. I had to tell both of them how disappointed I was, and me with a front row seat.

ROFL!

I only saw one of those in the flesh(-colored plastic) once. Obviously it made a deep impression.
