I thought this would be interesting viewing for all members
The poll above I hope would assist everybody in their images,
especially when looking for feedback. It would be great if given
the wide scope in this poll we could all view images in a simular light.
PS. If this has been posted before please delete this thread.
PPS The Top poll should read "Do Calibrate your monitor"
sorry but I could not edit it after posting.

Re: Calibration Poll
Well, i have a calibration device and i do calibrate my monitors, first i was not sure if i did it correct or it is almost accurate, so all what i did is to print some photos and check the photos on another monitors un-calibrated and also print some photos with the lab, all the photos came out as i want with full nice colors, and i always tell people that the prints i get look greater than what i see in monitor, will you say that you monitor is not correct calibrated if your print look better than what you see on monitor???
Re: Calibration Poll
I think it would be user to ask about HOW users calibrate their displays and if the display and print next to the display match closely. Many users know they should calibrate their displays. Many users do this. They are asked to target the calibration aim points (mainly the luminance and white point). What I find is many use the recommended settings the software suggests. But the software (and those that write the software) don’t have a clue about the print viewing conditions next to the display. Is it a 100 watt bulb or a nightlight or a light booth with multiple Fluorescent lights? All will affect how the print appears and how well it will or will not match the display.
Do users get a decent visual match? Do they adjust the calibrations for a match or just use what’s recommended and hope for the best? Are the prints visually darker than the display but appear OK when moved elsewhere?
