Weekly Giveaway – I Think It’s Time We Had That Little Talk……

It’s about your color.

Your Monitor color. Your Print color.

We’ve been walking all around the issue forever, but it’s about time to face it.

Since you may be dealing with the full on digital world at this point, even if you shoot film, you will be calibrating your monitor. And your printer. Yep, you have to do the whole shooting match if you want the best results.

There are some excellent products out there for every budget, and they do essentially the same thing:
Make sure the color you see on your monitor is the color that gets printed.

We know you’ve spent some dough on your printers and all of us have been frustrated with the off prints that get spit out. Expensive ink, expensive paper, expensive time.

The best way to solve that is to make sure all components are talking to each other and speaking the same language.

Here’s is simply how it happens: The Colorimeter reads the screen of your monitor and helps you calibrate it to the real world. Of course consistent light on the monitor helps but we can’t always get that.

This color “profile” can be used to output file to pro printing labs or coupled with a printing papers “profile”.
You can also scan color test prints to make sure it’s all working. That’s another part of the process we’ll discuss soon.

What we have for you this week is the Spyder2express monitor calibration device plus software. Take the first step towards looking good, and limiting our frustration at the printer.

Coming up we will look at one of the latest and greatest full service solutions for outputting great color after all of your hard work in Photoshop.( hint: it’s just been released)
