Color correction is a discipline, and as such uses a series of terms that help us to better define concepts, and understand each other. Some of these terms, the most commonly used, are collected and defined in the Glossary.

Also, I try to link these definitions in the articles and pages whenever I use them. When you see a link that has a different style, for example contrast, you can read the definition without leaving the page. If you’re looking for a definition in particoular, write me, I will add it if possible.
