to arrange to have your monitor display profiled.
To make arrangements for the service please contact Brian Sankey or Trevor Clowes at any club meeting or leave a message on the club’s hotmail address from which follow-up arrangements will be made.
the agreed date, please arrange for your computer to be started several
hours prior to the profiling session so that the monitor reaches it’s
optimum working temperature.
Colour profiling involves installing a programme on the individual member’s computer, which causes the monitor to sequentially display an array of known hues. A detector, suspended to rest on the screen of the monitor, measures the wavelength of the colours displayed and makes a comparison to expected values. From this comparison a small file is generated known as the colour profile and when inserted into the display software, corrects the display to values as close as can be achieved to those expected and designated by the International Colour Consortium (ICC).
profiled monitor is thus a pre-requisite to composing and managing the
required colour balance of a digital image prior to printing or projecting.
If however it is suspected that changes have occurred, then re-profiling can be carried out at any time by request.
The monitor profile can be suitably named as required, but it is always sensible to accept the inclusion of the date on which profiling took place as included by default.
a “Windows” computer follow these steps to check the date
on which the current monitor profile was created:-
