As a photographer, you know the editing process is a big part of the job whether it’s your friend or foe. Sifting through thousands of images your shutter-happy fingers captured on your last shoot or retouching the same image for what feels like days is no simple task—it’s tedious, and sometimes, downright exhausting. So why not elevate the experience? LG recently introduced its 34UM95 UltraWide monitor—we’re talking 34 inches of screen to work with—and it looks to be a promising new partner in the editing process.
Most of you probably have two sets of monitors for heavy-duty editing—one for viewing files and the other one open with Photoshop or other editing software. With a 21:9 screen ratio and UltraWide QHD resolution (3440 x1440), the 34UM95 offers generous, ample workspace that eliminates the need for two monitors, making for a much more efficient and productive editing process. Your working files, toolbars and thumbnails will no longer have to compete for space, so no more constant minimizing/maximizing of windows. The extra space also means you can work on a larger batch of images at the same time.
Not only will workflow be smoother, but eliminating the two monitors also ensures total color management—you can say goodbye to inconsistent color spaces between two screens. For tip-top color accuracy the 34UM95 uses expansive sRGB 99% color space and color calibration is sustained night and day with LG’s True Color Finder software and built-in scaler, so there are no surprises when you go to print. Who said two’s better than one? Here’s to more efficient editing, on one (big) screen with a killer view.
