Colour profile for new monitor

Recommended Posts

Hi is anyone using a samsung monitor? I'm using this s34e790c! But its all washed out and hoping if someone can point me in the right direction or can help to restore a good colour profile?

 

I've read through a review on some basic settings. but my problem is when using samsungs colour profile and adding it to colour profile it hs no effect? Either does nvidia control panel. Only way i can change its colour is through the monitor itself on the back?

I was just reading about this when I was looking for a monitor. That model needs calibration and if you google you can see many have the same issue as yourself. Apparently windows has a calibration tool to help with this   http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows7/calibrate-your-display

 

edit

 

turns out I was able to use that calibrator myself to give me access to controls not available on my 55" LED. Much better pic now

Hi. So will i use that link to calibrate my monitor? Also is it worth buying calibration software?

 

Do you use Nvidia control panel colour settings? Because i try to use that but it has no effect on my monitor?

Yes use that link OR Just click on control panel in windows and type color calibration and click on the link. It will guide you through step by step.

Remember to click on "use nvidea settings" ITS easy to over look and without it nothing will happen

Dont bother with calibration software unless you are seriously into photography. The point of calibration software is so that when you print (on a calibrated and profiled printer), it will look the same as what you see on your (calibrated and profiled)computer screen.
