print profiling hardware

Color management tips to achieve color accurate results – print profile hardware/software, colorimeters/spectrophotometers, ICC profiles, and more!

Color management is a pretty huge deal. If you get your output media settings wrong, you’re looking, at best, at walking away with a print that doesn’t look much like your original image.

In this episode of AskBC, Kevin O’Connor joins us to talk about his recommended print profile hardware, and answers a round of questions for listeners having trouble with profiling and color management.
