How to Properly Calibrate your Monitor using an X-Rite Colorimeter

“Not using monitor calibration to me is like burning money, well, burning paper and ink. You have to have a correct starting point and that’s a calibrated monitor. This is the beginning of a flawless workflow.”

Andy Katz – X-Rite Coloratti
