However, if I want something to look perfect on press, I look at a printers proof or press check under their color correct lights... theres only so much you can get on a RGB monitor vs CMYK or PMS print job...
I have been using my MPB 2.16 dual version for editing plus attached to an older Mitsubishi Diamond CRT. I have had numerous problems with calibrating and getting the correct settings.
Wedding photography is hard enough then after you kill your self getting some nice shots,,, you mess up with PP.. can't stand it.
I need a better solution. Either I get another newer good monitor and run it off my MBP or I buy another computer. I just bought a white light for color correction, it helps some..
I had a good salesman, another pro photographer to help.
One thing I do have to say that in the show room the lights on the wall certainly didn't help with the glossy screens. Lot's of reflections but wow, what a screen.. the 27" is gorgeous.
I mentioned I am having trouble with PP and color correction using my MBP.
I viewed my website pictures on the Imag.. crogersphotography.com, and yup I could see images where there were too much saturation.
I looked at his website and his images looked great.
So I do need to change something. He told me that the Imac can be calibrated to give me a 96% accuracy..
I also looked at the 24" cinema display which is basically the same as the Imacs.
So I could buy one of those or go for a quad Imac 27"
My laptop is 3 years old so do I continue to use it or go for a newer system?
He uses a 17" MBP for his pro work.. I guess he's got it down..
