Spyder Pro requires the hardware. You can't properly calibrate without a hardware calibrator. And, as we said, whether or not you are printing is not really relevant.

Now, you don't necessarily need to calibrate to edit and share photos. If you are taking photos just to share what occurred, for example, some event, activity, or location you want to share, as opposed to sharing for artistic purposes, then it might not be relevant if the colors and contrast are particularly accurate.

For example, I have many thousands of robotics team photos that Heidi and I took on my web site (linked in my signature), and I don't have any calibrator, but the photos don't need to have particularly accurate color or contrast, because their purpose is to show what happened, not to convey photographic artistry.

Good point here, thank you.
