Join Tim Grey for an in-depth discussion in this video Understanding tools for display calibration, part of Photo Gear Weekly.
- [Instructor] In our workflow as photographers…we take a variety of steps to help make sure…that we're getting great images.…We'll spend time composing our scenes,…setting up our camera settings and then after…the capture bringing those images into the computer…and using software to optimize the appearance…of the photo so that we can share it online…or make a print or however else…we might be sharing our images.…But if our display is not giving us…an accurate view of our image, all of the adjustments…that you're applying are not really…creating the result that you're expecting…and this is a common cause of a print…that doesn't match what you're seeing…on your monitor's display.…
Now with today's modern LCD displays…and even LED illuminated displays,…color accuracy is actually pretty good…right out of the box and color consistency…is pretty good so we don't have to worry…about the color changing over time.…The brightness on other hand can be a significant issue.…Most displays out of the box are about…twice as bright as they should be.…
