Calibration | Julie Pottorff Photography, Southern Illinois Family & Wedding Photographer

FAQ

Raise your hand if you have calibrated your computer monitor recently.

Okay, you don’t really have to raise your hand. But, seriously, have you calibrated your monitor? Ever? There’s a good chance you don’t even know what I’m talking about, and that’s okay. However, that also means that the colors you are seeing on your screen aren’t exactly how they should be portrayed. Why does this matter? Well, it can make a HUGE difference when you are looking at pictures.

My computer monitor has been calibrated. It’s a simple process that I like to do every couple of months or so. That way I know that when I send files to be printed at my professional lab, those prints are going to look exactly as I see them on my screen. Yes, that’s a good thing ๐Ÿ™‚

If you’re monitor hasn’t been calibrated, then there’s a good chance that the prints you receive will look different than what you see on your computer screen. Not only that, but it makes a difference when you are trying to pick out images from an online gallery. If the pictures you are viewing on your uncalibrated screen don’t look as nice as they do on my calibrated screen, chances are high that you won’t be ordering much. Not only that, but you will be disappointed in the (assumed) lack of quality I delivered on your session. I don’t want that. Whether you order 10 gallery canvas wraps or five 4×6 prints, I want YOU to be HAPPY and satisfied with the work I’ve done for you! So, yes, it IS very important to have your monitor calibrated.

Okay, so how exactly is this done? It sounds complicated, but it’s really a simple process. You can use this tutorial here, or a quick google search can turn up thousands of ways it can be done. The important thing is to just take 5-10 minutes out of your day and do it. Besides, you don’t want the awesome picture you just created on your computer to have wonky colors everywhere else, right?

way of content so people could connect with

Maybe you could space it out better?
