profile paper and monitor
« on: August 07, 2012, 01:34:47 AM »

what is the best package for monitor calibration and paper profiling? at a reasonable price? for occasional use.
I've been calibrating my monitors but sending out to have paper profiled, thought that I should start doing my own profiles, perhaps half a dozen a year at most.
Thanks
Marc

Perhaps the colormunki would be the best for you.

I second the X-Rite ColorMunki Photo as a reasonably priced/well performing unit. I am very pleased with the profiles generated with this but underwhelmed by the crippled software. Be aware that there are currently no other software makers that I am know of that support this unit with the exception of Argyl (command line). There are many threads dealing with this.

+1 for the Color Munki. Argyll is not really that hard to use…

At least for the monitor profiling, basICColor display 5 (http://www.basiccolor.de/basiccolor-display-5-en/) seems to do a much better job than X-Rite's software.  Their page says it supports the ColorMunki Photo.  They even have a fully functional 14 day trial for their software!
