I ordered Spyder 2 Express. After my gray looked pink last night, I figured it was time to calibrate. DH thinks I'm nuts, since the computer and monitor are brand new. But he doesn't get the whole color management thing anyway.
Also bought Kelby's PSE7 book.
That's my spending money for the rest of the month, but it will be worth it. It's not like I go to Starbucks or anything.
Can't wait to get it and hopefully stop questioning my colors.
Yay! It will make a difference though I don't think you will stop questioning color. I think color is a constant learning issue!
I'll bet you'll be really happy! To have the confidence that what you see is REAL ... that alone is worth its weight in gold.
Amazon says it's shipped ... but by the time it arrives, I'll be packing for my girls' weekend in Boston, so I won't calibrate until next week. but three kids will be at Grandma & Grandpa's then, so I will have the TIME to play! whoo hoo!
Yay!! Youll have to let us know if you can tell a big difference or not. Im thinking about trying to get it too.
You will see a difference, I promise you. I had a brand spankin' new monitor too and it was VERY much on the cool side. After I calibrated, yee haw, my prints matched my screen!
Good for you!
