I calibrated my monitor with a eye one. I'm now seeing strange stuff in jpg's and gif's that I didn't see before. I did the automated calibration, as it was my first time. What I'm seeing it like a shift in color in high light areas of skin that look kinda peach color, instead of the proper skin tone. I also looked at a newly posted image done on a white background and on the lower left of the image there is a blotch of light yellow to some yucky pinkish color. I was curious if this was a white point setting that was way off. Any ideas or suggestions? My monitor is a 17" IIyama Apeture grill type monitor that is probably 6 or 7 years old.

Have you managed to sort it out?...
You can always reset the calibration by using Adobe Gamma in the control panel if you can't get it sorted...

if your looking at images you did before you ever calibrated sure they are going to be different and in some case alot different,

if you think its the calibration well do it again, the monitor should be fine. I use a spyder pro for my monitor calibration and the different is amazing when it comes to the final print .

oh make sure you turn off adobe gamma when you calibrate, this causes strange effects !also make ure that it doesnt load with your monitor profile when you have redone your calibration.
 
 
Thanks guys

I did it manually a i was a lot better. Still not right, i don't think, but I haven't taken any photos lately, so, I'm in no rush.
