► Note

Color management is recommended ifyou anticipate reusing color graphics for print and online media, if you manage multiple workstations, or if you plan to print to different domestic and international presses. Ifyou decide to use color management, consult with your production partners—such as graphic artists and prepress service providers—to ensure that all aspects of your color management workflow integrate seamlessly with theirs.

TRY IT To make it easier, Photoshop has automated the process of selecting the appropriate color settings. To adjust the color settings specifically for web files (as shown in Figure 2-7), follow these steps:

1. Choose Edit I Color Settings.

2. In the Settings box, select U.S. Prepress Defaults.

Although the predefined settings should provide sufficient color management for your publishing needs, you may sometimes want to customize individual options in a configuration. For example, you might want to change the CMYK working space to a profile that matches the proofing system used by your service bureau.
