New Skintones Custom Chart/Swatch

I posted this in the photo art forum then thought this is the place I should have posted it.

It’s a better quality Image (larger) and the RGB & CMYK numbers are correct. The old one has some mistakes. Plus a small tutorial on how to make a custom swatch out the above chart.
I hope you find this of some use.

Steve

LactoBeeZor - perhaps this PDF will interest you. Dan Margulis is known as 'the man' when it comes to colour correction and the teaching of it's theory and applicaton. In fact, over the years Dan has taught a few colour blind people to colour correct, often with great success.

http://www.ledet.com/margulis/PP7_Ch02_ByTheNumbers.pdf

http://members.ozemail.com.au/~binar...V_links.html#C

Dan's free chapter PDF on colour correction by the numbers can be a real eye opener for many people who have only ever known colour monitors and visual edits. I can still remember the days when I worked on a high end prepress system that only had a monotone (gray) display. Early drum scanners did not even have this much visual aid and the first time the scanner operator saw the image was when it was output or perhaps on a softproofing station - after the scan was over.

Also due to my print background - I do not feel the need to use skin tone swatches or anything like that. Once you know the basic formula for evaluating and editing skintones - you will never need to refer to charts again...the image and your intuition will lead the way.

Skintones are hard - different areas have different ratios and hues/tones and there are many subtle interactions and variations etc.

Here is a link to a previous post of mine on the subject:

And a related article from my site:

Stephen Marsh.

I'm terribly sorry to bump a super old thread, but I'm wondering if anyone has the original zip?

http://www.trimoon.com/skintones.zip

I'd love to have that.

I know I'm not going to be nominated for noob of the year by bumping a two year old post
