How to do basic screen calibration

Calibrating your monitor means:

  • If you have two monitors, images will look similar on both
  • if you share an image with someone else, they are likely to see something similar to what you see on your monitor (assuming they have calibrated their monitor)
  • If you print to a calibrated printer the prints will look as similar as possible to what you see on screen

The best way to calibrate a monitor is to use specialised calibration hardware from Datacolor or X-rite or others, but you can do a fairly good job using facilities built into Window 10. Tim Keane has made a brief guide to this process HERE.
