Monitor balancing – two words that strike fear into the hearts of relatively sane people.
So what is it that most people don’t understand or makes them fearful to tackle? I think a lot of it has to do with the fact that articles and blog posts are being written, books being published and all they are doing is trying to sell equipment and programs so it makes it look a lot harder than it is. I also believe many people simply do not understand what monitor balancing it is and why it needs to be done. So before we go any further let me explain what monitor balancing is. Monitor balancing is simply balancing your monitor so that the image you see on the screen is the correct color and density, in addition it insures that it is the same color and density that the final print will be. It is no harder than this, it is no more difficult, that is it. Many people believe that when they buy a monitor, or computer system, that the monitor is already balanced. This is not so, every computer and monitor combination is different.
