    Excellent class, good job on behalf of Jared Platt

    This class, as far a I could tell, did NOT tell how to get consistent color between LR and PS which is what was advertised. The rest of the class was good but I particularly watched for just that one issue LR/PS. Disappointed.

    Perfect for my needs on calibrating the colour on my camera and monitor. I was struggling with using the colour checker passport as it was designed to be used. Jared's instructions simplified everything for me and was a piece of cake to implement. Now my camera and monitor are calibrated and I understand how to use the colour checker passport out in the field if lighting conditions are different to my master camera profile. Now I am going to make master profiles for my iPhone and my point and shoot.
