monitor calibration

Seeing it right
Seeing and getting accurate color is one of the biggest frustrations digital imaging users face. Color management, or in most cases, the lack of, can be quite tricky. One would think that in the age of computers and expensive software that colors would be perfect. Unfortunately, this is not the case. Monitors shift and fade, printers use a variety of inks and papers, and people see color differently.

Don't worry, I can help. If you think your monitor is not showing you the correct colors, I can come to the rescue. I have the special equipment to perform this monitor calibration service for you. Give me a call to see if I can help you see things the way they should be.

What calibrating your monitor WON'T do for you.
Unfortunately, calibrating your monitor does not make your printer work better. Nor does it make your prints you get back from the photo lab match perfectly. Calibrating your monitor will only accurately show you what your images really look like in their digital form. Again, this does not guaranty perfect prints. In order to get better looking prints, you must profile your printer or use supplied printer profiles with a Photoshop program. I do not offer printer calibration/profiling any more, but I can assist you in finding out whether or not your printer supports and supplies printer profiles.

No matter how much calibration and profiling you do, you will never be able to truly match an image on a monitor to an image on paper. They are such different mediums and emit and reflect light very differently.

This service is just $50. It's free with any 2 hour or more private appointment.
