We get to the bottom of the confusion and misinformation surrounding digital crop factor in this month's DCR Workshop installment.
If you've been scared off of color management in the past by the mystique that surrounds it, fear not. With the current crop of hardware and software color management tools, especially, calibrating and profiling your monitor and printer is not only manageable but even downright easy, even for profiling newbies. In this first installment of a two-part DCR Workshop series, we'll move through calibrating and profiling your display - the process of standardizing your monitor's output that forms the foundation of making what you see on screen what you get when you print your images: why is it important, how does it work, and what do you need to make it happen? In an overview that's part tutorial, part product review, we'll also demo the display profiling process using a particular color management tool - in this case, Datacolor's Spyder3 Elite system.
