What is monitor calibration?

All monitors vary in the degrees of accuracy in displaying photos and graphics.  Some show as washed out, some are oversaturated, others can be on the yellow or blue side.  The purpose of calibration is to adjust the monitor settings to match, as closely as possible, to the printed image.  Inkdrop Arthaus offers some corrective measures when receiving files that are dark or off color, however, you will want your images to be as accurate as possible before you submit them.

The best way for you to do that is:

  1. Order an 8x10 calibration print for only $3 by filling out the form on the right.
  2. Then download the same image as a PDF file for comparison.

  3. View the downloaded file on your monitor and compare it to the hardcopy print.  Adjust your monitor to match.  If you are not sure how to make monitor adjustments check with the manufacturer.

Just a couple simple steps and use tools you already have on your computer:

1) Make sure your monitor has been turned on for at least a half hour. This gives it sufficient time to warm up and produce more consistent output.

2) Make sure your monitor is displaying thousands of colors or more. Ideally, make sure it is displaying millions of colors or 24-bit or higher. (control panel>display>settings)

3) Remove colourful background patterns on your monitor desktop and set your desktop to display neutral grays. Busy patterns or bright colors surrounding a document interfere with accurate color perception.

4) Choose your operating system and then follow the steps to calibrate and profile your monitor: In Windows, use the Adobe Gamma utility, located in the Control Panel. In Mac OS, use the Calibrate utility, located in the System Preferences/Displays/Color tab. Remember that monitor performance changes and declines over time; recalibrate and profile your monitor every month or so. If you find it difficult or impossible to calibrate your monitor to a standard, it may be too old and faded.
