Before you begin

  • Step 1: Turn on your monitor at least a half hour before calibration so it can warm up to its normal operating temperature and conditions.
  • Step 2: Set your monitor’s resolution to its native, default screen resolution.
  • Step 3: Make sure you’re calibrating in a room with moderate ambient lighting. The room doesn’t need to be pitch black, but you don’t want the sharp glares and color casts resulting from direct light.
  • Step 4: Familiarize yourself with your monitor’s display controls. They may be located on the monitor itself, on the keyboard, or within the operating system control panel.
