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.
