I just got a new monitor to use for my photo editing. My last CRT was reliable and true-til it wasn’t anymore. I calibrated right before I started editing a recent job and everything was good to go; or so I thought…..
Got my proofs back- they were Magenta/Red and dark- NOT my labs fault! My monitor calibration had “slide” and it was time to replace it.
Here is where the heart ache came in- CRT’s are a thing of the past- it’s now LCD flat screens on the market with a BIG gap between useable ones for graphics and crap! ( $100.00 up to $5000.00 dolars)
After a lot of research- I finally found one that doesn’t break the bank! ( Did I mention a LOT of research….)
I’m not going to announce it or the model number just yet- I am running some tests and should have print results later this evening- but if all holds true and the color/density is set up right- I’ll give out details in the next couple of days- if it sucks- I’ll tell you that too……Did I metion the monitor is less than $500.00?
That’s right; less than Five Hundred dollars……….
