    Default Bad monitor?

    Guys does this picture look like it has too much saturation? Because when i look at it on my monitor it looks fine, but when i tried printing it it looks over saturated.. I did not calibrate my monitor because i did not think it was that bad, but if it is my monitor not my printer or whatever, i might change my mind..



    Thanks for your help ..

    The skin tones look pretty red on my calibrated monitor. If you're going to print, you need to calibrate your monitor. Before printing, soft-proof using the printer profile to adjust color.

    What do you expect? You have no reference as to how your monitor (and also other components of the chain, e.g. video card, OS settings) reproduce colours but you take the output to judge colours for image editing?
    Get a screen calibrator (just search this subforum here, plenty of tips) and calibrate your screen. Everything else is wasted time and efforts (and maybe money if you print and the result is not what you want).

    Right on Octarine,

    It's like complaining that car is not driving straight when no wheel alinement & balancing done.

    Dear mikhail33,

    There is no shortcut in imaging.


    cheers
