Everyone should calibrate their screens, I use Pantone’s Huey Pro and it gets it right for me everytime.

    I find the concept of monitor calibration rather interesting. I have Spyder 2 Pro which I’ve only used once. The problem is that with the output of a large number of photos being to the screen, you could calibrate to your heart’s content but you will never know for sure the lighting conditions under which your photos will be viewed. My take is that if you plan to do a lot of prints, then calibrate your monitor and use an ICC profile for the printer or pro lab. Otherwise, I don’t see it as necessary.

  1. I do a lot of prints, so calibration is important for me. And I have to deal with a lot of profiling for other things, so it’s a no brainer for me to calibrate.

    I used a Spyder for a long time but the software started to drag real slow on my Mac’s as they did not update the old software at the time to Intel Mac. So I switched and have been very happy with the Huey Pro.

    Yup I agree with you that you cannot control the way in which the images are viewed, and most people have their monitors set up really bad. However that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t try, and take satisfaction that you did everything you could 🙂

    Imagine if everyone decided to not bother because someone else didn’t…
