I am Arandel, a new member of this forum. Quite recently, I started reading up on professional color management, as part of my artistic evolution. My specialization is in postprocessing, and after thorough research, I decided to order a i1 monitor callibration tool. Since Amazon, along with several other vendors, wouldn’t ship it outside the States, I was fortunate enough to find Chromix, who would. They delivered it promptly (a big thanks to the entire staff!), and I immediatly started callibrating. At first, it all seemed wonderful, but then I began noticing how the representation of color varied between different software. Adobe Photoshop - I use version seven, was the worst, displaying extremely dominant yellows and red. My Canon ZoomBrowser was more somber, as was Windows Viewer. Internet Explorer appeared to honor my earlier profile perfectly…
Prior to the i2, I used Adobe Gamma for callibration. My computer is a LG laptop with a 17" widescreen, on which I run Windows XP. I also used the i2 on my boyfriend’s 17" LCD, hoping to be able to conform the two screens. Unfortunately, a brightness adjustment, was the only difference achieved. Additionally, I have a question regarding dark colors, where the blacks appear translucent/inverted: is anybody familar with that type of problem and how to resolve it?
Any input would be highly appreciated. Thanks in advance,
