Tip Your Calibrated Monitor Wont Look as Bright

Most monitors have a factory default setting of about 9,300 degrees Kelvin. This means they're bright and colorful, greatfor displaying text and computer graphics. Unfortunately, bright and colorful isn't whatyou want or need if you want a display that will look much more like what your photos will look like when you print them out. Typically, the colortemperature of a calibrated monitor is about 6,500 degrees Kelvin (also known as D65), which is significantly duller and more subdued than the factory setting you're probably used to. Get over it—a calibrated monitor and accurate color is much more important than a bright display if you want great photo prints.
