My Prints Don’t Match My Monitor. Rings any Bells?

Color management is an extremely complex science, involving the process of controlling colour reproduction as it moves from the input to output ends, through a 2-step process: calibration and profiling; to allow all these devices to speak the same language so you can get accurate and predictable results.


Calibration VS Profiling

Calibration is using hardware adjustments on a device to set the device into a benchmarked, reproducible state; for example, adjusting the brightness control on your monitor to a specific point.

Profiling is the process of measuring a device’s colour output, and changing the signal going into that device to achieve a more accurate colour reproduction; for example, if we want to achieve a certain blue shade (BLUE 100 for example), by measuring the output, we might find BLUE 110, so we would understand that the output should be changed to 90, and adjust accordingly if the right shade is achieved.


With the increasing knowledge and market needs, technology has evolved to make it easier for artists, photographers and other fields that need accurate color reproduction in digital imaging, especially when it comes to wide format printing, because this is where it will be more obvious.
