May I add this one:

(ICC White Papers)

and this, not exactly CM, but related to

http://www.displaymate.com/testing.html

(on testing and comparing monitors)

Best regards,

Wow! Herman, that’s an impressive list.

While I can’t add a lot, let me suggest to consider a substructure for information management.

Just for example, that’s roughly the way I file such links. And it is of course a basic problem to define where CM starts and ends:

Peter
--


1.) People and Organizations

These are websites which offer a variety of great articles such as:

Bruce Fraser at creativepro
http://www.creativepro.com/author/home/40.html

Andrew Rodney’s tips
http://digitaldog.net/tips/index.shtml

Wikipedia
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_color_topics


2.) Equipment

These are companies which offer some background literature beside / on their products, for example:

Adobe white paper and primers
http://www.adobe.com/digitalimag/ps_pro_primers.html

Microsoft’s upcoming WCS
http://www.microsoft.com/whdc/device/display/color/WCS.mspx


3a) Color Response – Input (sensor design, ACR calibration)
3b) Color processing – classic CM and some math
3c) Color Reproduction – Output (monitor & printer)

These are single takes and links with either a specific focus or a nice general CM overview. Among 3b I’ve also placed
http://colorlab.hig.no/ICC3D/index.php
http://www.w3.org/Graphics/Color/sRGB
http://www.theimagingfactory.com/excalibur/clipping.htm
http://www.pegtop.net/delphi/articles/blendmodes/
http://www.c-f-systems.com/PhotoMathDocs.html

etc. etc.

Please consider the following for inclusion somewhere in your categories:

Steve Upton's classic article explaining CM in terms anybody can understand...
http://intl.i1color.com/html/toast.htm

Free online self-training in 'Color Management Fundamentals' from X-Rite.
You need to register first.
http://www.measureitrite.com/

A very large list of colour science links
http://members.cox.net/astro7/color.html

This page has lots of fun stuff about human vision. In particular, the 'simultaneous contrast' illustration is a useful lesson in not trusting your tonal judgement.
http://www.michaelbach.de/ot/index.html

ColorSync Users List (covers general Cm as well as Mac specific stuff)

Two more places to get software companies responses to question pertaining to their own software:

Yahoo group dedicated to Colorvision (Yahoo account required for posting and downloads):
http://groups.yahoo.com/group/colorvision_group/

Integrated Color Support forum for Coloreyes and the rest of their software (registration under "real name" required for reading and posting):
http://www.integrated-color.com/techforum.html
