mistyprochaska Posted May 15, 2016 Share Posted May 15, 2016 I just replaced my 2011 iMac with a new iMac with a Retina display. I have had the Colormunki for several years. A few months ago, I ordered sets of prints from eight different labs, each set containing 6 photos that showed a range of colors and tones. Using my Colormunki and following Damien's instructions exactly, I was able to get my monitor to match my prints exactly- SO exactly that I had three different perfectly matched profiles that would match specific labs (I had a Miller's specific profile, for example, etc., even though I found the differences in my prints to be tiny). Then I replaced my IMac, and finally last night I got around to plugging my calibration device back in, as I will need to be ordering prints again. Pulled out all of the prints, went through the ColorMunki process exactly according to Damien's device, and I can't get my prints to match. The prints are all incredibly warm no matter what I do. I went through every step of the problem solving instructions, every white point possibility, and did it repeatedly. This morning I tried to just see if my prints would match better with NO calibration, as a lot of Mac people seem to think, and Ha! Yeah, no. So, looking at the options- clearly NOT an option to get a new screen. And the differences are so vast between the prints and the screen, I am not sure I can lower my expectations. After many years as a hobbyist I have just started the process of creating my business, and this is not the time when I can stop caring about print quality. I will happily purchase a new calibration device if that is what is advised. Am I missing something because this is a retina display? I have previously done this so successfully, that I am floored that this has gone so badly. Any ideas would be so incredibly appreciated. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
