If you truly feel that "color accuracy is very important", you need to go with a hardware solution. It's a lot more accurate, and takes the guess-work out of the process. I use Datacolor's Spyder4. The least expensive one is the Spyder4 Express, which is about $100. I think that's all most people need. The more expensive Elite and Pro models have additional features that the average person doesn't need. It'll last you forever, it's a reliable hardware solution, and it's definitely worth the money to get colors you can trust.

Hello Everyone.

For me and for other people as well , photographt color accuracy is very important.

Given such fact it is also important to have a color calibrated screen monitor.

This all more important since many people do post process their pictures and without a calibrated monitor it is impossible to know which colors are right and which colors are off.

As far as I understand there is hardware solutions to calibrate monitors.
There is also software solutions.
Some are free , others are paid.
