|Monitor Calibration File|
|Written by Dave Smith|
The file below is the standard reference file that we use to check our workstation monitors after they have been calibrated. You can obtain a free Frontier digital reference print that has been made from this file with no manual corrections. The only modification is the automatic application of a custom paper output profile by the printer's control software. Ask for one next time you stop by, or request one with your next on-line order.
You may copy and save this image by right clicking on it (ctrl click on a MAC) and selecting "save image as" then choose the location to which you want to save the file. Using the imaging program of your choice, compare your screen image with the actual Frontier print. Make any monitor adjustments needed to visually match the two images. This will cause future prints to more closely match the images you view on your computer screen.
Please remember that this method is not intended to replace hardware/software calibration methods. It can, however provide the extra visual fine tuning that will make the task of color matching much more reliable.
