They understand the importance of calibrating and profiling monitors for photographers.  The bottom line is that unless you perform this simple but necessary function, your color management workflow does not exist. It’s literally ground zero for good color in digital photography. Whether you simply view your photography to simply evaluate what you shot or do extensive finishing and manipulation, without calibrating and profiling your monitor you have no idea whether what you’re seeing on the screen bears any relation to what is actually in the file you’re viewing.   Here’s just a small portion of the article, “Calibrating your monitor ensures that it displays colours and tones exactly as they should be, and many devices to suit all budgets exist for the task. The X-Rite i1 Display Pro is one of the latest additions to the X-rite stable, and it’s billed as the world’s first spectrally calibrated colourimeter.” CLICK HERE to read the entire article X-Rite i1Display Pro Review by TechRadar.com.
