The Atlanta Photographic Society's X-Rite ColorMunki device is available to Club members only for their personal use to calibrate monitors and printers/papers.
A color managed work flow is essential to ensure that what you see on your monitor is accurate, and that what you print is what you see on your monitor. It's also necessary for accurate viewing of your images on other monitors - including those used during our club competitions!
For more information on the ColorMunki, tutorials, etc. please see the X-Rite web site. You can also consult with Don Stephensor other club members with experience using the ColorMunki.
To checkout (or reserve) the ColorMunki use the sign-out sheet in our sign-out book.
The checkout period for the ColorMunki is for ~1 month (bring back to the next club meeting in ~ 1 month).
