Damien, I recently purchased a new computer and had to reinstall photoshop. Can you link me to how to setup the workspace and check the color profile?

I would say Module 2 of the Layer & Masks Class, Module 4 of the Raw Class, and the first few slides of Module 6 of the Levels Class.

Thanks! Also this one is using microsoft edge, is that good or do I need to switch to firefox?

From my testing, Edge seems to be fairly colour-accurate, if that's what you mean.

I have not calibrated yet. The monitors came with papers showing their calibration readings but I would assume that I need to do it myself, correct?

Does this look correct?

Yes, but it all counts for nothing if the screen doesn't match the prints.

How does the comparison look?

Recalibrated both screens, do these look acceptable? Digging out prints to compare.

I feel like my prints are slightly darker than my screen.  What is my next step?

I have recalibrated again. I still feel like it is too bright. The prints I have are very old, would that make a difference? I also feel like the color temperature is different on each screen.

Ok, did it again. It is a lot closer. I feel like the color temp is a lot different on the screens tho. On looks quit a bit cooler to me than the other. 

These are the graphs from the one that looks cooler to me.

These are the graphs from the warmer one. This one more closely matches my prints.

Great!

So you can either:

  1. simply choose to edit solely on that one, and only use the other (cooler) screen for emails and stuff; or
  2. keep going with recalibrations on the cooler screen (continuing to follow the troubleshooting part of my instructions) to try to get it warmer and better.
