Following the general wisdom, my monitor white point is set to D65 and I believe I am following correct color management procedures. If I view a print in room lighting using household incandescent bulbs and compare it to the on-screen soft-proofed image, isn't it guaranteed not to match because incandescent bulbs have a color temperature of around 2700 K?

There are two solutions that I see: (1) Change the monitor white point to something like 3000 K; (2) Get a lamp that is close to D65.

#1 seems quite radical, according to everything I've read, so it must not be a good choice. #2 seems more plausible.

Do monitors not function well at 3000 K? And do printer profiles assume D65 illumination?

Thanks.

Barry
