Here a while back I bought the "Colorvision Spyder 2 Plus". The profile it saved, which my monitor now uses looked very different from my previous profile. (I've always went by "eye" with Adobe Gamma). The colors and whites were much more subdued (sp?) but my older photos looked fine, and all web images, such as the ones posted here look dead on.
My problem now is that when working on a new image in Photoshop using sRGB or Adobe98, my finished and saved image looks different on my monitor than it did in Photoshop. It has much more of a red tint than what I saw when editing in photoshop. If I set photoshop to use my monitor profile, I have to convert each new image to that profile from sRGB, which my camera saves to.
I've re-ran the Spyder several times and it comes up with the same thing each time. I don't know which one is right, or if my colors are way off to everyone else or what. My monitor is a 19" CRT, Samsung SyncMaster 955DF, .20mm dot pitch...couple years old, not cheap at the time.
I give up...
