| p.1 #1 · Color management - Rendering intent....help! |
So I got my monitor calibrated with my new Spyder 4. Much better!
But now I'm a bit confused. What should I set all these settings to? I don't print much, if at all. I'm really confused!
I've read a bit about the differences between Perceptual Intent and Relative Colorimetric Intent, as well as Absolute Colorimetric when talking about "Default Rendering Intent". Which one should I go with? From what I've read, Relative Colorimetric Intent is the best to use?
Also, In the choices for "Perceptual" and "Absolute Colorimetric", I read that these should be set to Proofing - simulate paper / media color. Now I'm really confused! What should this be set at as well?
My last question is this. In my "Devices" tab in the color management window, the Spyder 4 profile is selected. But in the advanced tab, where the above setting are located, the "Device Profile" is set to my monitor default profile. Should this be set to the Spyder 4 profile as well?
I've read quite a bit about this subject, and I just get more confused. I just want to know what settings I mentioned above are best for mostly web display with some printing here and there. I want to make sure things are displayed correctly in LR and on the web.
