Printing in Lightroom – Episode :1 Screen Calibration

by Anthony Morganti

If you’re viewing this in your email, click in the headline to view the video.

Printing in Lightroom can be confusing if not intimidating. In this four-part mini-series, I will teach you how to get great prints in Lightroom whether you print them yourself or send them off to a lab.

In this, the first episode, I demonstrate how to calibrate a monitor. A properly calibrated monitor is ESSENTIAL to achieving beautiful prints because you must be certain when you’re processing an image that the colors, brightness and contrast that you see on your screen, will be what is printed on the paper.

In the video, I use a Spyder5Pro from Datacolor. It was kindly loaned to me, so I could create this video, from B&H Photo Video...

by Anthony Morganti

If you’re reading this in your email, click on the headline to see the video.

This is the 29th episode of Lightroom Quick Tips where I give a single, quick Lightroom tip.

I Can’t Do Anything Part-Way

by Anthony Morganti

Photography Studio

I can’t do anything part-way. Years ago when I was a child, my cousin and I had the obligatory lemonade stand. We started out selling glasses of the sugary sour juice for a nickel. After the first day, I raided the fridge in our house liberating the RC Cola that was contained therein selling those for a couple quarters. I few days later, I took some of the profits down to the local donut shop and purchased a dozen donuts. We sold the 28 cent donuts for 50 cents.
