Do you calibrate your monitor?
I think nobody will argue that we should have our monitor calibrated to providing accurate, reliable and consistent color since the display is the heart of our contributor in DT of our daily digital workflow.
I have bought a display calibration device called “Spyder 3 pro” for my monitors calibration, it works but not pretty well on all monitors I have, especially for the laptop (IBM T42), looks really awful after calibration, the whole screen turned to very “Green” that made me unhappy, and I do not believe that is the accurate color. But it was working fine on one of my Sony Trinitron CRT monitor, feel better after calibrated. The interesting thing is, I have two Sony Trinitron CRT monitors with different types, but only one can be calibrated well, the other one also and always give me a “green face” after calibration, no matter how many times you tried on. but not much as what the laptop looks. Confusing…
So, I’d like to know what you guys did on your monitors and what is the result. I would appreciate it if you could answer a couple of my questions below:
1.Do you calibrate your monitors?
2.What kind of device you using to calibrating your monitors?
3.How do you satisfy with the result after calibration?
4.Do you think the image administrators reviewing images in an accurate monitor? (stupid question?)
