CD Tobie: SpyderTune: Spyder4ELITE’s Secret Weapon
Nov 2012 20

The launch of Spyder4ELITE earlier this year brought a new tool to display calibration and the digital color workflow: SpyderTune. This feature is easy to overlook when running Spyder4ELITE, as it is not part of the wizard workflow. It only appears as an alternate tab in the SpyderProof window, where the results of your calibration are displayed. Choosing this alternate tab brings up the SpyderProof test image set on all connected displays, with a new set of controls on the right.

David Cardinal: Bronx Zoo Photo Walk

So it’s worth reconsidering your display calibration settings, if your prints still don’t match your screen.

Displays have changed over the years. Standard calibration and use of a color managed imaging application can take care of the issues created by the new wider gamut of many displays. And higher bit-depth may provide increased smoothness, but it should not cause any new color matching issues. The feature of newer displays that consistently causes the most problems is their increased brightness.
