Reliable colour reproduction for your photographic prints

To achieve a consistency in your colour photography, you will need to ensure that your computer display monitor is calibrated using a calibration device such as X-Rite ColorMunki or similar devices. These devices attach to the front of the monitor screen and analyse colours and grey levels when the accompanying software is run. Normally an increased brightness is the main issue, which is normally set from the factory. This in turn results in prints looking darker when compared to the screen. The calibration devices will set an appropriate brightness, taking into account the room’s ambient lighting.
