Is the mac colour (man i wish this thing would stop telling me that colour is spelt incorrectly !) calibration method on a site ?
I gots an idea.....................send a full res, RAW file, if-in you got it, to both Sloyerrol, and myself. When you get them back, compare both images, and see if they look similar on your monitor. If both of ours are consistent, then you will have an idea of whet one would see on a calibrated monitor, and have an idea of how far off your monitor is.
If they are different then use mine.
Be patient...im up to something.
You mean your down to something? After all you live on the bottom half of the world, with your seasons being reversed.
Gus, you still need to get a hardware based calibration tool. I use a Spyder 2 Pro. Others like the Huey.
One very important thing related to Macs is the gamma they use. This post is early in the Andy's Unsolicited Mac Advise Sticky at the top of the forum. Even ignoring the browser color space issues, you need to make sure you set the gamma correctly (2.2 not 1.8). Even Apple's website says you need to do this
So i did this (put it on 2.2.... it was 1.8 btw) & now my screen looks sort of 'tea stained' .. its got a light sepia to it.
Is that correct ?
Well if you just changed it without (re)calibrating it is probably using a profile that expects 1.8.
I'm not sure what the result would look like, but sepia sounds kind of familiar. I calibrated my MacBook Pro monitor, changed the gamma, the whole bit. Then I did it for my 24" FPW and forgot to change it for the DVI output - and got a nice brownish/yellow tone in my grays. More tungsten than sepia in my case.
