Colour / Monitor Calibration
Sep 19, 2006

I need some help around calibration - I need my monitor to provide accurate colour / brightness contrast for both Web display (I presume use jpeg and SRGB) and for prints (presuming TIFF aRGB).

I shoot RAW and process to 16 Bit TIFF using Capture One Pro as Adobe RGB. Am I right in assuming when I open in Photoshop CS2 I should convert to SRGB if web is the ultimate destination and leave as ARGB if print will be the final destination?

For reference could you please evaluate the colours / brightness of this shot, as processed using a newly created ICC profile with a free download of WiziWYG (I know i'll probably have to buy a colormitre thingee...)

The image should appear bright (not too dark) and saturated with little to no over exposure. Plenty of blue in the sky, the lake should have a distinct cyan to it and very should be rich orange reds around the boats. The first boat was desaturated to pure white, so should not have a blue or red cast. There should also be plenty of visable detail in the tree on the right.

Any thoughts and assistance greatly appreciated , Thanks!
