This is one problem I am facing. I really cannot stand it anymore, and am trying to look for a solution, but am getting more lost as I try.
Calibration of monitors for web, for print, and for general distribution to friends, has become a major nightmare for me.
I am using a Powerbook G4 1.5GHz, and I've done three (all dissimilar) calibrations for my monitor using the in-built colour calibrator found under system preferences. I've tried the sRGB monitor profile, but everything looks bluish. Because I am shooting RAW, I really worry that after processing (in Adobe Camera RAW), my JPGs that come out will be
1) of wrong colour tone
2) of wrong WB
3) of less saturation than is actually desirable.
Does anyone have any experience in this?
I really hope to rectify my colours so that when I send a photo in for print (on Wednesday afternoon), it will turn out pretty alright, yet the colours will be suitable for web and personal distribution. I am aware that most labs and home monitors run on sRGB, but this whole issue is just confusing me.
