A very useful introduction to ColorSync and Quartz filters IMHO,  
though probably not of the technical depth you're looking for, was  
provided on pp. 312--317 in ch. 9 of "Mac OS X Panther in a  
Nutshell". Unfortunately it was part of the stuff, intermediate  
between OS X basics and Unix-geek stuff, that was removed in "Mac OS  
X Tiger in a Nutshell", apparently for no reason --- or was it to  
prevent overlap with other O'Reilly titles on OS X? In any case, such  
removal makes "Mac OS X Tiger in a Nutshell" pretty useless IMHO, and  
a waste of 50 € or so in my case --- should have ordered the LaTeX  
Companion 2nd Edition instead.
