Well for Christmas all I wanted was a calibration kit. I just wanted to be able to get my colors right on my laptop. Well, according to the salesman that my husband spoke to, it is pointless for me to calibrate my laptop monitor. That it won't really work and I won't really see much of a difference anyway. He said even with the other monitors we have it won't really be noticeable either. It would just get even more frustrating for me when editing photos. And then he said something like I'd need a good monitor that supports RGB or something like that. I don't know what he said since DH spoke to him but it was something like that. That basically I'd need a pro monitor, the really expensive kind, in order to get good results or whatever. And it won't really matter if my laptop is calibrated if I want to print photos at a local print shop. Not a professional place but a place that people can go to to print pictures if I ever practice on others, strangers. So he basically said to not waste my money on a calibration kit because it's not going to work because I shouldn't be editing photos on my laptop anyway but on a computer with a good monitor. He also talked to DH about printers because we have a photo printer, it's not professional but I get great pictures printed with it and I just printed out my christmas pictures and they turned out great! I don't get it. It's so stupid. My bubble burst. Now I honestly do not know what I want for Christmas because I was looking forward to getting calibrated so that I can edit and re-edit and basically finish editing pictures all the way back to September. :-? Ugh! I am not happy at all. Now I have to think of what else I might want for xmas. All I wanted was the kit. *sigh* Oh well! Hopefully after christmas I'll start editing again and share pictures with you all again. But I hope you don't mind about my colors. It might be off by a bit or something. I don't even know anymore. The whole colors thing has been so frustrating for me and I just have to realize that my pictures aren't going to look great on all monitors no matter what. thanks for reading.
