Some time ago, after giving a colour management themed talk to a local camera club, I put together a short article covering the most frequent question I get asked: "Why don't my prints match my screen"
Last week someone emailed me again with the exact same question, and I wondered if a 2006 article was still relevant about why simply calibrating/profiling your monitor isn't always the 'magic fix'. It's an important first step, but you may need to think of other factors too.
I've updated and expanded the article for 2015.
It's pitched at a broader level of interest, so apologies to true colour experts - it wasn't written for you
I hope it's of some interest...
bye for now
