You’ve probably noticed that a row of televisions in a store can all be the same brand — and even be adjusted the same way — but the image displayed on the screen is different. Sometimes radically different. Sometimes subtly. It’s the same way with computer monitors. When you are on one computer, a image looks one way, then when you move to another, the image is a shade different. Different monitors display color differently.
This week I installed Eye-one on my PCs at the house. Eye-one is a monitor calibrator from xrite that makes sure your color is right so when you work with images what you see is what most others see. And what you see is what you print — or at least close. After calibrating the monitor, I created my own header images for my blog here.
A couple things:
- To see a different image, press F5 to refresh. There are about thirty of them, displayed randomly.
- I think I did a little overkill with the color. But I was having fun. Oh — and I was learning new software.
- I don’t think my Holy Land images are as good as the headers from England that I created. They are on this blog (at the top of this page, displayed randomly). Perhaps I do better with city images than country ones.
As always, your thoughts are welcome.
