Re: Confused with calibration

1. Most uncalibrated displays have a distinctive blue bias. So yes you may see a dramatic color shift from blue towards yellow/red.

2. The primary purpose of monitor calibration is to make sure what you see on your monitor matches your print.

3. Most people live in an uncalibrated world and will definitely see your colors differently than what you see on your calibrated monitor and there's nothing you can do about it. Even if you don't calibrate your monitor you still can't be certain that you will now see what others are as each monitor will have a different uncalibrated look.

4. You must have a calibrated monitor even if you have your photos printed elsewhere as all printing services use a calibrated workflow.
