How it works:
Reliable color quality requires accurate profiles for all the devices in your workflow:

Step 1: Using a colorimeter or a spectrophotometer, attach the instrument to your monitor, and use the wizard-like interface to create a monitor profile for your CRT or LCD* in less than 5 minutes. Your instrument will optimize the brightness for you!

Step 2: Create a profile for your scanner or digital camera using the appropriate target. Scan, crop the the target, and name! Detailed profile statistics provide information about the profile quality and accuracy.

Step 3: Choose a target patch set and print it using your output device. Measure the patch set with a spectrophotometer. MonacoPROOF creates the profile, and allows you to control the ink limiting and black generation

Step 4: Want to make slight adjustments to the output file? MonacoPROOF provides advanced editing options to adjust the lightness, saturation and output curves.

Step 5: You are now ready to use your profiles in ICC-compliant applications, digital proofing systems and for optimizing your output to photographic and inkjet output devices.
