Introduction to Color Calibration with Photoshop
Early on in every photographers career, we learn of the important factor that screen calibration plays into the outcome of our photos. It can make all the difference in the world when it comes to our final products, especially our prints. Programs for calibration can be expensive, and many photographers, especially ones starting out don’t always have the financial resources for these tools.

Thanks to H&H Color Lab, we now have an alternate way to monitor color calibration by using some basic tools within Adobe Photoshop, and combining them, to validate accurate color calibration.
Color Calibration Using Photoshop
As outlined (in a more detailed manner) in the video, there are three main combined steps that yield accurate color quality. H&H does a great job of explaining how a combined use of histogram readings, with color sampling, bracketing, and specific RGB values, will help you to get a more accurate result, without the use of expensive tools.
H&H has done it again when it comes to offering great tips and ideas for photographers. Their attitude of service and quality has been a key staple in their continuing success as a company.
