Lady Photog Posted January 29, 2016 Share Posted January 29, 2016 Why oh why is my calibration not matching my prints. Please can you help? Scenario: Followed all Damien's advice for Spyder5Pro to calibrate an iMac Late 2015 model 5k Retina display. Test prints were supplied by a top pro lab and i also applied their ICC profile in PS to check the calibration against the print...my screen is warmer than the print! It appears to have a magenta hue to it. Skin tones look lovely on screen but pale and washed out on print. Any grey,beige & taupe items on screen look pinker. I have tried re-calibrating in a dark room and in a natural daylight room and in a room with the light left on (a 5000k daylight tube light)...nothing gets rid of this magenta hue! I've even tried letting the device read the ambient light and it advised to set 5000k and 90 brightness, which i did but no...still no match! I've also tried to match the print in every lighting scenario possible but no result! Please can anyone help as this is really holding me back...
