A workflow is a series of tasks or a repeating pattern of activity used to achieve a result effectively and efficiently.

  • A successful workflow requires careful assembly and organisation of all resources beforehand so that they can be structured into a step-by-step procedure.
    • A typical colour management workflow might begin by ensuring that colours viewed through a camera viewfinder are captured and digitally recorded.
    • Image editing software such as Adobe CC might then be used to work through a decision-making process to ensure an image is fit for purpose.
    • When the workflow requires it, monitor calibration might be used to ensure that information is accurately displayed when viewed on screen.
    • A successful outcome is achieved when the final image accurately represents all decisions made during the editing process.
