Calibrate Your Monitor for Best Color Viewing 

MyPerfectColor does its best to display accurate colors online, but the simple fact remains that on-screen color representations may vary from actual paint colors. This is due to a variety of factors, not least would be that the online color is not the actual paint, it is just a computer representation of the paint color. And every single computer monitor will display these colors differently. 

Regardless, the paint or paint samples you buy online from myperfectcolor.com will match the actual paint chips. The online color pictures are there simply for reference.

That said, there is a fairly easy way to calibrate your monitor to improve the way colors display on your computer monitor. If you have an actual paint chip of a color that is also available for viewing on the myperfectcolor.com website, then  you are in business.

 

Step 1: Find the color on the myperfectcolor.com website and navigate to the color page.

Step 2: compare the color of your paint chip to the color on the screen

Step 3: make adjustments to your monitor settings (e.g. Adjust the Red, Green and Blue hue settings) until the colors match.

 

Your monitor should be calibrated. You can test this by viewing another paint chip against the monitor if you have one.

The online color will still not be as good as the actual paint chip, but at least you will have a better sense of what the actual color will look like.

Remember-- the paint or paint samples you buy online from myperfectcolor.com will match the original paint color chips. The online color pictures are there simply for reference.
