Adjusting your Monitor Settings

By using the calibration image, you can match the colors displayed on your screen with those that will be printed by our printers. Doing this ensures that the photographs you order will come back looking as clear and color-balanced as the images you sent in for processing.

Just like on TV sets, most operating systems include software "controls" to allow you to adjust the color balance on your screen. On a PC, these settings can be found in your Control Panel under "Display" and might look like this example. Sometimes, your monitor itself will have controls with which to change the color balance.

Glossary

Calibration Image: The screen calibration image is simply an image we've chosen which displays a range of colors that allow you to compare the output from our printers to the color-balance on your computer monitor or screen. By comparing these differences and adjusting your monitor's color settings to match the calibration image, you will be ensured that the digital images you see on your screen will then be printed out in the same colors with minimal variation in brightness, contrast, and hue.

Control Panel: In the Microsoft Windows Operating System, the Control Panel is where you are able to make adjustments to most of the applications on your computer. Get there by clicking on the "START" button and then "SETTINGS" under which you will see "CONTROL PANEL" (Hint: as a shortcut, choose "RUN" and type in "Control") Here, look for and select "DISPLAY". This will open a new window showing you various Display properties. Finally, choose "SETTINGS" and then "ADVANCED." Here you will find the settings for your monitor's display adapter (the look will vary by Brand Name) but you should also find a control which will allow you to adjust your monitor's color settings.

Photo Album: Photo Albums are a safe and convenient way to share photos with family and friends across the internet. A Customer account is needed to log in to your album, upload, share images, and to order prints and products. If you haven't done so, you can create an album today! [top]
