Chris Crawford I am pleased to announced a long time member has agreed to help and mentor others in photographic technique. As he has long done so, perhaps this forum is a bit overdue. Christopher Crawford has been a professional artist and photographer for 20 years, most of that time spent documenting life in northern Indiana with his photographs and the stories that he writes to accompany them. In addition, Chris also creates tutorials where he teaches photography techniques, film processing, digital editing, film scanning, and printing. Ask Chris your technical questions, or to critique your photos. You can see more of his tutorials at http://crawfordphotoschool.com

Color calibration hardware?

I need some advice, please.
I just built a new pc and later today I'll have a new monitor delivered.
And while I have been happy with visual "calibration" so far, I have decided to get a bit more serious about it.
So, what should I buy?
I'd like to be able to have my lap top screen and my desktop monitor match each other for color if I can and, possibly, set a profile to match my preferred online printer's.

Thank you!

Basically, I mean, ah—well, let’s say that for me anyway when a photograph is interesting, it’s interesting because of the kind of photographic problem it states—which has to do with the . . . contest between content and form.

I use the Xrite i1 colorimeter package, it's been totally reliable and matched a half a dozen very different displays, when I had multiple systems running simultaneously.

It was the colorimeter package recommended to me by my friends in the ColorSync and Display Hardware groups at Apple back in the middle '00s.

This is the best one: The i1 Display Pro.

Its what I use. It works on my NEC Spectraview screen using the NEC software, and works on my other screens using the Xrite software that comes with it.
