A question regarding profiles for projectors.

When you create a profile for a projector, what is the procedure for 'calling it up'  if that is the phrase.  Say there was a profile for the laptop screen, and another for the projector.

This is a question regarding our club laptop/projector where there is marked degradation on the projector screen.

It's a coincidence you should mention this, in about an hour I'm doing a projected picture show for some "seniors".
I'm using the Qimage slide show feature but I haven't got a projector profile so will just set sRGB as the "monitor" (=projector) profile in Qimage, rather than leave the laptop profile there.
If you have a projector profile, then you would use that instead. If you are using some other application that is CM aware, then you must set the projector profile as the "monitor" profile. I'm pretty sure that in Windows, it is not possible to have more than one monitor profile active at the same time and it has to be set, as required, to be the Windows default - or set in the projection software.
If Vista is being used, I have a suspicion that it manages colour whatever the application if the images have an embedded profile, but I've never had that confirmed  Huh

I would adjust the projector first. There is usually a little remote control that lets you change brightness, contrast, colour etc. We bought on at work and it was dreadful at first, but a few tweaks had it looking great.
