Calibrate: Display Calibration

To see images the way they were intended, your monitor needs to be calibrated. Display calibration ensures that what you see is what you get.

Why Calibrate?

  1. Monitors display colors differently.Monitors don’t come color calibrated and their colors shift over time.
  2. You can’t depend on your eyes.You can’t trust your eyes to adjust your monitor correctly. Factors such as fatigue and time of day effect how your eyes see color.
  3. Image colors are not true to life.Often your photos don’t look right on your monitor– skin tones are off, whites aren’t pure, blues look cyan.
  4. Unnecessary editing time. If your monitor isn’t displaying your photo’s true colors, you will waste unnecessary time editing.
  5. Prints don’t match your monitor. With an un-calibrated monitor, the colors in your printed photos won’t match what you see on screen.

As the window to your digital photography, your monitor is a tool you need to be able to trust. If your monitor color isn’t accurate, you won’t see true-to-life colors, highlight and shadow details, not to mention correct skin tones.

Print: Printer Profiling

Have you ever printed a graphic that looked perfect on your computer monitor but when printed the colors were completely off? Even if the differences were not very dramatic, the way images look on screen can differ from the way they look in print. Calibrating your printer ensures that what you print is consistent with what you see on your calibrated screen. The two go hand in hand.
