Abstract [sv]

Color management has become more common now than ever in the graphic trade. Calibration and charcterization are words that are mentioned very often when it comes to controlling colors and when you want a printed picture to look the same as an original photograph. The problem is that there are not so many people that has the knowlegde about this subject. Even if a printer supports color management it is not sure that the result is going to be satisfied and that a printed picture is going to look the same as the original. The printers which were used were Hp DeskJet 970 Cxi, Xerox Docu Color 12 and Agfa Chromapress 50i. The theory of color, colour management and the equipment which were used are described in the first stage. The second stage describes calibration and characterization of monitors, scanners and printers. Finally the result of created ICC-profiles is set by visual comparision of a photographs original colours and a scanned and printed photograph. The results of calibration and characterization were varying a lot. Agfa Chromapress 50i was the only printer which could produce a succesful calibration. Agfa Chromapress 50i and Xerox DocuColor 12 gave the best results when comparing original photographs with printed pictures if they were separated with ICC-profiles. ICC-profiles created for Hp DeskJet 970 Cxi achieved undesirable effects. This was the only printer that gave a bad result both with and without ICCprofiles. The reason for this miserable result can depend on the printers unability to fully support color management.
