monitor calibration VS printer calibration.
On most digital photography books, they will have a part on calibration of the hardwares so that the screen and printer colour matches. D
However, I am looking at some calibration tools from cathay photo (http://www.cathayphoto.com.sg/offers/brand/datacolor) and I'm kinda don't understand the differences between a monitor & printer calibrator.
The monitor calibrator (eg syder3 prop) writes "No more trial and error processing; get it right the first time. A calibrated display will help ensure that prints will match what you see on your screen"
while the printer calibrator (e.g spyder 3 print from http://www.cathayphoto.com.sg/sites/...Print_Data.pdf) also calibrates the printer profile.
I'm confused about this two types of devices and its purpose. Can someone enlighten me?
Do correct me if im wrong.
