Calibrating your computer display to our calibration print is an effective way
of ensuring that your digital images are printed the way you see them
 
 
Basic Calibration
 

Please note, that calibrating your monitor is not necessary if you are happy for us to optimise your images before printing (which we undertake as default). Ambient lighting conditions are crucial to accurately calibrating your monitor. Lighting conditions must be constant, ie. in a room with no windows and tungsten daylight lighting.

 

1: Order a Peak Imaging calibration print via email here and await its delivery.

2: Download the image file used to create the calibration print by clicking
here.

3: Open the calibration image file in Photoshop. Set working colour space to "sRGB".

4: Use Adobe Gamma [preferably] or your graphics card's controls to match your on-screen calibration image with the print. The black (and white) areas on the monitor should match the black (and white) areas on the print, while the greys should be neutral with no discernible colour cast.

5: Give your eyes a break, then return to check that the image on-screen still matches the calibration print. Repeat step 4 until a satisfactory match is obtained.

You should now have a monitor setup that will allow you to view images more accurately prior to submission for print!

 

 
Advanced Calibration
 

Using our Output Profiles in conjunction with our "Guide to Soft Proofing in Photoshop" may allow you to attain a far more accurate match than following the instructions above.

It is important that the document is followed accurately and that the Output Profiles are used correctly. DO NOT CONVERT WITH OR EMBED THESE PROFILES.
