Camera and Monitor Calibration




If you are after accurate colour for your images you need to be aware of all steps in the process.

From the moment you press the shutter on your camera, the settings you use will affect colour. When you import your images into Lightroom of Photoshop, your colour settings are critical. WIthout a correctly calibrated monitor, the chances of what you see on your screen looking like the print we make for you will be slim. You must have confidence in your printer that their papers and system is correctly profiled to ensure your results are consistent.

Using tools like the entry level ColorMunki Smile for basic calibration will give you a sporting chance to get things right. For those of you that require even more accuracy, choose the X-rite i1Photo Pro 2 or X-rite i1Display Pro for professional results.
