Calibrate dark photo

Recommended Posts

I purchased a Spyder as a print Lab used gave me photos that were too dark. I believe my monitor was at fault.

I have read your instructions carefully. Where you say in section "Adjust brightness to match prints" should I use my over dark print to adjust here ?

Secondly, my Gamma shows 2.5 whereas Target is 2.2...what do I do about that please.

 

Many thanks

You're right, monitors are usually at fault.  Which Spyder did you get?

Yes, definitely.  You want your screen to match your dark prints, so that you'll KNOW how dark they are, and won't edit them so dark again.  I hope this makes sense.

Can you elaborate on this? Where does your gamma show as 2.5?
