art reproduction webinar
In September, Pam Trebes completed a webinar for fine art reproduction professions presented by Color Data through LinkedIn, the world’s largest professional network. The course dealt with color management using soft proofing techniques — known as ICC profiles — to match the paper, ink and printer on the computer screen prior to printing, thus eliminating the wasteful trial and error factors. Pam, who works with several local artists, has been using ICC profiles since she has been doing fine art reproduction on both paper and canvas, but not as fully until now. She and her husband, Rick, own Trebes Studios at Lake Almanor, offering art, photography and audio/visual services.
