Managing Color

We’ve covered some color basics, but before going any further you may want to do a couple things to ensure that the color you see on your monitor will be reasonably accurate when you decide to print or send images to the Web. Luckily, color management in Photoshop Elements is very simple, and doesn’t require any labor-intensive chores on your part.

First, you should make sure that the colors you see on the monitor are reasonably accurate, and represent what others will see on their monitors. Calibrating your monitor is a particularly good idea if you have an older monitor, or inherited it from a friend or relative (you don’t know what they might have done to the monitor settings). If you have a newer monitor, it probably came with an accurate calibration from the factory. In that case, as you go through the following steps, you may find that no changes are needed.
