June 13, 2003 -- The International Color Consortium has published its second Progress Report covering the activities and accomplishments of the group during 2002 and early 2003. Highlights include several actions taken by the ICC to make the specification easier for implementers to use and address issues raised by users in implementing workflows based on ICC profiles and the organization’s commitment to turn the specification into a formal International Organization for Standardization standard.
The 16-page process color report contains complete information on the activities of each of the ICC’s six working groups including their objectives and an assessment of their progress towards improving the ICC specification, as well as a list of user concerns which are being
addressed and a workflow template.
According to ICC Secretary, William K. “Kip” Smythe, “User input on issues that they face in the implementation of color management has been key in focusing the ICC activities.” Smythe continued: “As a result, 2002 was a very productive for the group as further improvements have been made that will result in the release of a minor revision to the ICC specification later in 2003.”
