    Hi All

    I am now a proud owner of an iMac. This is my first mac after many many years of PC's.

    Is there anything I need to know about the photography side of the mac, ie colour profiles for monitors etc as its all pretty new to me. I don't print anything, but would like to know what i see on the screen is correct!

    Many thanks in advance

    Nik

    I use an imac with CS5, I just plugged it in & it worked, colours are perfect as far as I can see & the prints from my canon printer are spot on.

    I am noticing that in the few days I have owned it, things just work...a comment I have heard many times about MACs!

    Calibrate your screen with one of these, because things just work you'll not have any problem Smile

    It depends how accurate you want to be but if you care about correct colours, calibrating your screen with and external device is the way to go. Most come with software which automatically creates and sets the correct monitor profile.

    From memory, the macs I've used haven't been too bad out of the box but if you're making creative editing decisions based on what you're seeing, calibration seems worth the effort to me.

    Cheers guys! Once I get some cash together I will invest in a calibrating device. Nice to know that the mac isn't too far off out of the box though!

    Hi, yes I would calibrate the monitor. I use a Color Munki, but I must say there's rarely any change when I reset it. Welcome to the iMac world, I'm sure you'll enjoy it.
