Lesson 11. Setting Up Your Monitor for Color Management

Lesson 11. Setting Up Your Monitor for Color Management


The most basic requirement for color management is to calibrate your monitor and create an ICC profile for it. Applications that support color management will use your monitor's ICC profile to display color graphics consistently. If you don't have a hardware-based calibration and profiling utility, you can get reasonably accurate results using Adobe Gamma.


In this lesson, you'll learn how to do the following:

  • Examine the principles associated with color management.

  • Calibrate your monitor using Adobe Gamma.

  • Create an ICC profile for your monitor using Adobe Gamma.

This lesson will take about 45 minutes to complete.

Note

You can skip this lesson if you have already calibrated your monitor using a hardware-based tool or an ICC-compliant calibration tool such as the Adobe Gamma utility included with Photoshop 5.0 and later, Illustrator® 8.0 and later, and InDesign® 1.0 and later, and if you haven't changed your video card or monitor settings.
