An LCD monitor for photo processing

An LCD monitor for photo processingI have always been a die hard fan of CRT monitors from the very beginning when it comes to Graphic Designing, Video Editing and Photo post processing. In last 7-8 years I compared and tested color accuracy of CRTs and LCDs and every time CRT wins. But lately I realized that CRT monitors consumes double energy and extra space on our desks. So I decided to migrate towards LCD monitor, and my research started. In the course of my hunt for perfect LCD monitor I... continue reading

Has DT Ever Given You a EUI

We are all guilty, kicking back with a few beers, wine, or whiskey, and some of us have been fortunate and slid by. However, for those who weren't so lucky have seen the flashing green swirls on their monitor, stopping the editing process, and asking them to step away from the computer, and to take a photoshop field test.More and more photographers are suffering from this fate which leads to rejected images and lower AR's. Please! Don't Edit Under the Influence. Let's make the internet... continue reading

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,... continue reading

How important it is to calibrate your monitor

Hello there,After seeing 31 of my files under the Rejected Files list, I've learned something really important.These are the common reasons for my pictures being rejected:Poor color: this image has a low color profile and needs improvement in order to increase its sales potential. You can process your image with color enhancement software, such as Photoshop, giving it the appeal it needs.Poor lighting setup, poor contrast or incorrect exposureFirst of all, I was using Picasa to quickly... continue reading

When getting a new computer....

... check your monitor settings.In a carry-over from yesterday's events (Stock Image -vs- Snapshot), I learned another valuable lesson as well.I am used to working on my desktop computer, where I have already spent painstaking time matching my monitor settings to my camera display. The brightness, contrast, and color settings are very accurate to what the image will look like printed out, so I do not have to lean on the histograms too much.However, I failed to calibrate my new laptop monitor... continue reading
