Steps for Getting Accurate Color in Adobe Photoshop Lightroom

You should make sure that the colors you see on the monitor show as accurately as possible what you are likely to see in print. The color management system in Lightroom requires no configuration. Lightroom automatically manages the colors without you having to worry about profile mismatches, which color space the image is in, or what the

default workspace is. There may be problems with missing profiles, but this only applies to imported files where a conscious decision has been made to not color manage an image.

Apart from these rare instances, you can rely on Lightroom to manage the colors perfectly from import through to export and print. However, you do need to give important consideration to the monitor display and ensure that it is properly calibrated and profiled before you can rely on using it for any kind of color work. Calibrating and profiling the display is essential, and it does not have to be complicated or expensive. So if you want to get the colors right and want to avoid disappointments, you should regard the following pages as essential reading.
