Freeware Monitor Calibration Program

Thu Sep 27, 2001 5:38 am

Hello all,

The screeners and I have been using a freeware program written by Nokia to calibrate the settings on our monitors. As you know, a correctly calibrated monitor is vital when dealing with digital images.

You can get it yourself at

If you know of a better program we could all use, don't hesitate to let us know.

Thanks to Dee-see-eit, that adviced me about the utility, I discovered that my settings were too dark; hence my "milky" scans.

I thought that it was well calibrated via Photoshop, but when calibrating the monitor with this one, it tells you to adjust the monitor controls and AFTER that, the callibration begins (?!): this way seems to work better.

Johan and Screeners: perhaps this would help you to have better scans but expect (at least from my part) several reuploads!!  Big thumbs up


There is a very fine line between 'hobby' and 'mental illness'.

Looks pretty good to me. I did see some miore patterns on the right side of my screen with certain colors, but I don't believe that is a reason for alarm. In fact, I don't think this is user-correctable, but if I'm wrong please advise.

This calibration program caused me to lower my intensity a couple of percentage points. This results in images that look duller than I would like when looking at previously processed images. I'll see what happens next time I process new images.
