First, consider your light

Please never underestimate the impact your surrounding light has on this calibration/comparison process.

  • If your light is too dim (which is a very common problem) it will always make your prints seem darker than they really are, and cause you to think that your screen is too bright.
  • And if your light is too yellow (also a very common problem) it will make your prints appear yellow, and therefore cause you to conclude that your screen’s calibration is too cold.

If you think, or even suspect, that your light is the culprit, take steps to rectify it. Get brighter or whiter bulbs if you can, or at least try assessing your prints in daylight. I would hate to be wasting your time with all of these calibration adjustments if the calibration wasn’t actually the problem.
