I am a colorist for a small company that prints color correct graphics for clients. Each of our clients is allowed to specify the type of light source that they will use to evaluate our prints. The client provides a physical sample of a color which is then custom matched to their lighting "standard." We match a color to an RGB value and enter the value into a database. However, we recently have started to match prints to multiple light sources, requiring us to match the same color multiple times.
In an effort to streamline our color matching process, I'm trying to create a mathematical profile for each light source (D65, D50, CW, etc.). My goal is to have a conversion model that allows me to specify an RGB value and a light source and have the formula return the RGB value needed to print a color correct image. Using a Photoshop curve adjustment isn't going to cut it.
If anyone has any ideas, or has done/read about something similar, please let me know. Thanks in advance.
