You’ve just captured a memorable image, and it looks great on your camera’s LCD screen. However, it doesn’t look as good on your computer monitor. That’s why it’s important to have the best monitor for photo editing. In this free video, world-renowned outdoor photographer Ian Plant shows you the optimum features you’ll need in purchasing the best monitor for photo editing.
First, you should choose a monitor with a wide color gamut range that will cover most of the Adobe sRGB color space. Second, you’ll need a monitor with a wide, consistent viewing angle for color and illumination with a matte finish instead of a glossy finish. Third, you should buy the largest screen you can afford. For his own post-production, Ian edits on what he considers the best monitor for photo editing: the 24-inch Eizo ColorEdge Monitor with built-in color calibration.
