Display and Monitor Calibration with the X-Rite ColorMunki Photo (Podcast 249)

Display and Monitor Calibration with the X-Rite ColorMunki Photo (Podcast 249)

Today I take you through a full monitor and printer calibration with the X-Rite ColorMunki Photo, and we also take a look at how to optimize a printer profile.

Although it was a little late, I finally published an iPod optimized version of the video via the iTunes/RRS stream, so recheck iTunes if that’s where you usually get your MBP fix.

The full-sized video will only be available here, or on Vimeo, to download the video for offline viewing.

By the way, if you live in Japan, in or close to Tokyo, it would be great to see you in Gotanda for my Color Managed Digital Workflow seminar, at X-Rite Japan. See my Workshops Web site for details.

Martin Joined the X-Rite Coloratti!

X-Rite PhotoI’m proud to announce that I recently joined the Coloratti, who, in X-Rite’s words…

Include the world’s top professional photographers, a group whose vision, passion, leadership, and partnership are recognized and valued by X-Rite. Coloratti photographers are highly respected by their peers and are admired by up-and-coming professionals, enthusiasts, and students alike.

The Coloratti understand the importance of implementing color management in their workflow and freely share their knowledge on how to get the very best color for all your images, no matter how it is presented – on screen or in print. The Coloratti photographers have a dedicated passion for the world of photography and achieving accurate color is presented in many of their workshops, seminars and at sponsored X-Rite events. They foster creativity in others and inspire their students and audiences to easily master color control in their imagery and their art.

I’m honored to be included in this group of photographers, many of whom I already know and admire. I won’t name names, as there are currently 53 of us (as of May 2010) but if you are interested, do take a look at the Coloratti page on X-Rite’s Web site, and see for yourself. You can also check out my Coloratti profile page, from my thumbnail, currently on page four.

X-Rite Color Calibration & Management Products

Among other great tools, X-Rite are the manufacturer’s of the ColorChecker Passport and ColorMunki Photo, color management and calibration tools that I have fallen in love with in recent months. I’ve totally converted my digital workflow, now centered around the these tools, and thanks to X-Rite, I now incorporate color management in the digital workflow lectures into my Workshops.

Color Managed Digtial Workflow Seminar

I am actually just finalizing plans for a one day Color Managed Digital Workflow seminar in conjunction with X-Rite Japan, designed for a group of up to 10 participants.

Full details will soon be available on my Workshops web site, but it will be a full day hands-on color managed digital workflow seminar, taking you from image capture to print, and also include output to the Web and Slideshows. It’s centered on Adobe Lightroom and Photoshop, making full use of X-Rite calibration tools. The place will be Gotanda, Tokyo, one Saturday in July or August, 2010.

The seminar will cost ¥10,000 (around US$110) including lunch. We might even be able to go for a few beers afterward. 🙂

If you are interested, drop me a line.

Once again, I’m proud to be a part of this elite group of photographers, and thank X-Rite for their interest in me and my work, and for their kind support.
