In order to gain control and get consistent color in digital photography, I use a color management system that includes use of a spectro colorimeter to measure actual screen and print colors. Once the displays and printers are profiled and calibrated, the colors of finished prints are consistently as intended. Images are also tagged with color profiles so other calibrated systems know how to display them. Uncalibrated systems and software that doesn’t respect color metadata won’t accurately display tagged images. As an example, the actual colors in the two Maroon Bell images are identical; however, the image on the left has no color profile attached, while the image on the right is tagged with a color profile. The color profile tells the viewing software, in this case your browser, how to interpret the colors. If your browser is color aware, the images should look different. If they look the same, your browser is color blind and no amount of monitor calibration will guarantee the correct representation of colors. Both hardware calibration and software capable of color management are necessary to display colors as intended.
