    I have a 27" iMac (no color fringing issues! Yay!) that I'd like to calibrate for photo processing. I've never had a problem with color issues etc. with prints in the past, but some that I recently got back looked quite dark, so I figured it's about that time.

    Are there any recommendations on how to do this and not blow a hole in my wallet? Spyder vs. i1Display 2? Different "pro" levels etc of either? I'm lost.

    Here's an interesting blog post about it. Let me know if you agree.

    The best way to do this with a colourometer; Spyder is excellent, and Huey is good as well. Pick up the hardware of your choice and follow the instructions. The software (at least for Spyder) is very straight-forward and intuiative.

    I don't use a Mac, so I can't say if I agree or not... Just thought I would at least throw the link up there, lol...
