Steps for Getting Accurate Color in Adobe Photoshop Lightroom

Article Description

Fashion photographer Martin Evening shows how to calibrate and profile your display to ensure that the color you see is the color you get when working in Adobe Photoshop Lightroom.

Steps to Successful Calibration and Profiling

For accurate calibration you first need to decide whether you want to buy a basic device for calibrating the monitor display only or a more advanced device that allows you to create your own custom print profiles. I use the Gretag Macbeth Eye-One Photo. The Eye-One Match 3.4 software guides you through the calibration and profiling process with either the Eye-One Photo or the more affordable Eye-One Display2 calibrator. Prior to doing a calibration, make sure the calibrator head and white tile are clean before making any measurements. Also, ensure that the screen surface is clean and free of dust.
