• Remove colorful background patterns on your monitor desktop. Busy or bright patterns surrounding a document interfere with accurate color perception. Set your desktop to display neutral grays only, using RGB values of 128. For more information, see the documentation for your operating system.
• If your monitor has digital controls for choosing the white point of your monitor from a range of preset values, set those controls before starting the profiling utility. 6500 K is a good white point for most uses; 5000 K is the common standard for U.S. prepress providers.
• Monitor performance changes and declines over time; recharacterize your monitor every month or so. If you find it difficult or impossible to calibrate your monitor to a standard, it may be too old and faded.
