New Monitor Calibration Help?

Fri Oct 08, 2004 4:48 pm

I bought a new TFT-monitor and when I open an image in ACDSee and Photoshop the colours look different. On my previous Sony CRT-display I didn't notice any differences.

Does anyone know of a good monitor calibration program which can be purchased on-line (my new monitor is the Viewsonic VP201b 20'' TFT 16ms). And just to make sure, which colour space do you use in Photoshop?

Found no matches for "calibration" in my search of the archived topics.

Thanks,

If you have photoshop installed you'll find adobe gamma in the control panel. That will let you make some basic calibration. If you want top accuracy you have to buy a hardware calibrator.

Set photoshop to sRGB color space by default if you mostly edit pics for web use.
what seems to be the officer, problem?

Thanks Chris,

I have the sRGB colour space in use and will try to find a hardware calibration thingy in the local computer superstore.

As I recently read, every version of ACDSee up until the new one released a week or two ago doesn't have color management whereas Photoshop does, thus the difference in what you see onscreen. The new version allows you to set the gamma level. That always kind of bugged me to see the difference in my photos between viewing programs.
