BIC’s Pre-Press for Publishing Training Course

07/11/2019 @ 09:30 - 17:00


BIC’s Pre-Press for Publishing Course

Purpose of the Course
Taught by a pre-press expert on their premises, this is an interactive course focusing on the pre-press workflow from image selection to file supply – whether that’s for print or digital distribution.

Poor image selection and mistakes at pre-press can be very expensive. As such, this course aims to provide delegates with the skills to minimise the risk to their organisation and ensure they know how to get the intended result.

Benefits of Attending
Using a combination of seminar-based discussions, activities and practical demonstrations, this course will provide an overview of the pre-press workflow and print processes.

The pre-press world is full of jargon and complex terminology which can be hard to decipher. This course clearly explains the process and will demystify the language and techniques, helping delegates to avoid some of the most common pitfalls and unnecessary expenditure, and solve problems quickly and easily.

To ensure our attendees get the most out of the day, we limit the number of delegates for this course to 5.

Course Level
This course is for anyone in publishing who is responsible for the selection of images, the creation and output of files for books or the finished quality of books. It is aimed at those with no previous, formal training in colour.

Course Outline
The topics covered will include:

  • How to create a great pre-press brief
  • How to assess image quality and its suitability for each project
  • Understanding colour theory and how it impacts the finished book
  • Understanding colour management
  • How retouching can improve an image
  • How to colour correct
  • Specifying the correct file format for your needs
  • Understanding the different proofing options available and knowing which one is right
  • Knowing the different digital options available and being able to select the most appropriate one for your requirements
