Last week I pontificated about the importance of color calibrating your monitor. Although the PS supplied utility Adobe Gamma is a good start this method is subject to the frailties of the human condition.
- Color can be subjective.
- Varying degrees of color blindness amongst the general poulation.
- Monitor may appear different depending on the ambient light in the room.
The only real choice for maintaining consistent color is a colorimeter. Up until now, there were few reasonably-priced choices for the amateur or advanced amateur. Enter Huey by Pantone. For under $100 Huey calibrates your monitor as well as the room's ambient light with a hardware/software solution that's perfect for the digital novice who craves consistent color. Check it out.
