1  Technical Discussions / Computer Hardware / Monitor Calibration on: January 19, 2012, 12:32:57 AM
I have a Dell 2410 monitor and a ColorMunki calibration device. The monitor is connected to a MacBook Pro. I have been trying to successfully calibrate my monitor for some time and I'm really struggling. Fundamental problem is the baseline to use. If I go to my monitor control panel, there a re myriad of preset options for colour and brightness. Under colour, there are all the usual suspects like Adobe RGB, sRGB and Custom where you can create a seemingly infinite number of configurations. Brightness and Contrast are set to 50 and 50 by default. It's pretty clear that the settings here that precede calibration have a vast effect on the resulting icc profile. My goal of course is to colour match to my printer (Epson Photo) and although that is getting closer using Ilford paper and their supplied profiles I'm still some way from success.

On my most recent monitor calibration attempt, I reset to factory defaults prior to running ColorMunki but then I spotted another issue which I can't explain. If I open the exact same tiff file in both Aperture and PSE9 and place both on the calibrated monitor, the images are different. Some colors subtly so but the Aperture reds are brown in PSE.

Anyway if anyone can offer advice on baseline settings (be they factory of otherwise) for Dell monitors driven by Apple hardware that would be helpful. Any views on the app colour variation also appreciated.
