Re: Intentional Color Corrections Planned for Display in Ambient Light

My colour calibrator has a step for measuring the ambient light, and it makes a different to the profile it produces for the screen.

If I want to make sure the printing house has printed my prints correctly, I have to use the right screen profile for the right ambient light, or I'm thinking the printing house has screwed up again.

From that, I assume you could make a profile which would make a print look like what you wanted in whatever lighting you wanted. However, most people probably expect things to looks suitably weird in weird lighting, so your print which looked correct would then be perceived as very weird. I doubt it's worth trying.
