advice needed regarding the above. I have read pages on the subject and I realise I need a calibration kit to sort it. I have looked at Norman korens site but i could not work out if i was making any difference using quick gamma software. There are many reveiws all extolling virtues of different kits. What I need is a nudge in a particular direction . Pantone or spyder. which one ? I use a single monitor, lcd , windows xp o.s., what other considerations do I need to think of. thanks in advance.

Take your pick Doug. At our 'level' they will all deliver the goods... Once the screen is calibrated, you can implement the excellent advice here to complete your colour-managed workflow.

Hi DOug

Well I use the Eye-One by what used to be called GretagMacbeth (they've renamed or been taken over now).

Very easy to use and effective and their cust service is excellent....

But I've not used any other's so I can't comment on the relative qualities.

Spyder 2 works for me, And it's quite reasonable price wise, Although reviews say that Spyder 3 is slicker & works faster......Albiet it's dearer....!

I find the Eye One Display 2 does the job perfectly.
