Re: Profiling monitor at D65 or D55 for printing

I'm not a color scientist, but it has always been clear to me that the color temp and brightness of the emitted light coming from my monitor does not translate 1:1 to my prints. It seems that the monitor needs to be cooler than you'd think it should be. I can take the x,y coordinates of paper, and use them as the white point for monitor calibration, but the result is not satisfying. Same for contrast ratio. I'm curious but not obsessed with perfection here.
