Calibrate your monitor to achieve accurate color in your digital darkroom
The image on your monitor will never exactly match what's on paper, especially since your choice of paper, be it glossy, matte, watercolor or otherwise, will impact how the photograph is reproduced. The goal is to have an accurate monitor, so that any changes you make to the image can be consistent and repeatable.
For those who choose not to use a system with a colorimeter, DisplayMate offers a system that uses a series of screenshots and user adjustments to optimize the image on the screen.
Whichever system you use, it's essential that you perform such adjustments and measurements on a regular basis to help ensure that your prints can become the best they can be.
