Screen calibration

As more and more photo enthusiasts embrace post production, it becomes increasingly important to ensure consistent density, tone, and color rendering.

In order for your prints to match what you see on your screen at home, CDM recommends that you calibrate your screen regularly.

The image provided on this page is especially designed to allow you to approximate your screen's performance. The three circles at the center of the image should be white, gray, and black, wihout any trace of a color cast. The images on the right include neutral skin tones, and a neutral gray background.

For added accuracy, CDM recommends the X-Rite family of products to calibrate and maintain your screen's performance. We offer the entire range in our store.
