Release 

Comments 

Release 1

This version first released with CUA Creative Arts and Culture Training Package version 2.0.

Performance Evidence

Evidence of the ability to:

  • document research into the principles and techniques of digital colour management
  • evaluate digital colour management systems and strategies, and select a system to apply in a digital imaging context
  • manage digital colour across a range of digital devices to achieve consistent quality in products
  • evaluate outcomes and document ways to respond to future changes or opportunities.

Note: If a specific volume or frequency is not stated, then evidence must be provided at least once.

Knowledge Evidence

To complete the unit requirements safely and effectively, the individual must:

  • explain how colour is created, defined and managed in digital imaging devices
  • describe how common colour charts, spaces, measurement, systems and models are used in photo imaging
  • outline the key industry standards that apply to colour measurement and management
  • describe typical issues that may arise in managing digital colour and briefly outline solutions
  • identify trends and emerging technologies that may have impact on colour management systems.

Assessment Conditions

Assessment must be conducted in a safe environment where evidence gathered demonstrates consistent performance of typical activities experienced in creative arts industry environments. The assessment environment must include access to:

  • an environment where a range of digital imaging devices and colour management systems can be applied.

Assessors of this unit must satisfy the requirements for assessors in applicable vocational educational and training legislation, frameworks and/or standards.
