I thought it would be helpful to take a few minutes and to step back and talk a little bit about color management. Now, color management is all about increasing accuracy or clarifying communication between multiple devices-- say between our monitor and our printer. One of the ways that we can do that is by getting a device say like the ColorMunki. Now, what these devices do for us is they measure the color coming off of our monitor, so it then tags it with a profile. We create a profile for a particular setup. That profile then clarifies a communication when that image is sent off to be printed. And one of the devices that I recommend is this ColorMunki, and here's why.
It's really affordable, and it works really well. And here's how you want to think about it. What it's doing for you is it's increasing your accuracy. It's helping you clarify your vision, so that you are getting what you actually are seeing on your monitor. The other thing I like to think of this as is a time-saving device. If I have accurate color here, it's going to speed up my overall workflow, and ultimately, this is going to help me create more compelling photographs.
