Monitor color setting
Posted on 2004-11-20
Hi Experts !
I have both a Philips 190B Flat panel and a 17" IBM CRT monitor.
I know that both screen will not display exactly the same colors but I get HUGE differences even when trying to change the settings.
One of my screen has its colors closer to my CMYK paper print color reference.
Since I'm working on those monitors to create graphics, I would really appreciate finding a solution to this problem.
So my questions are :
- How do I know that my monitor is setup correctly and displays the correct colors ?
- What is the best way to set them up correctly ? any Benchmarks ?
- I'm mainly doing art for web and digital paintings, not really for print, but should I calibrate my screen to make it look closer to my CMYK reference book ? is it a good ref ?
