Hi,
I have just bought this TFT display and I'm very pleased with first impression...

I did set up the auto contrast and other manufacturer auto set up but what I'm interested the mosti is following>

I bought it because i had very old 15" display CRT and the contrast and light was very bad so my photos were not good enough.
Now I spend lot of money and I need help in adjusting display as good as possible... without proffesional calibration.
The calibration is expensive and I need to know if there is any free test just to do more of custom balance of contrast or brightness...or similar set up testing by maybe some sample photo...

I would appriciate your help over this matter
regards Zak

Have one of your pics printed at your lab and then when you get it back match the monitor to the print. I usually use one of the spyders for my initial calibration and then fine tune it to match a print from my lab.

Here, the digital machines on which I print photos are not so good calibrated and color some time get a little away.... I want to be sure when I send the photo on OFF-SET printing for magazine to have good colors. This will only work if the machine on which photo to be printed is calibrated and no adjustments have been made on the photo before printing on the machine itself... in any case I will try to see what will I get.

I was just trying to receive any quality photo where I can see a specially black and white parts and where I can compare the black and white areas with Potoshop background and to adjust it with what I see with my eyes......

what about this try>

I adjust NEC on NATIVE color workapace (also there is SRGB)

then I open Photoshop

make the work background black (not background inside the margins of the photo) but outside of the photo margins

inside the photo margins I make a square of the black color on the left side and then to the right I place 9 squares with 10% less then the previous untill I get complitely white color

then I could do a little more adjustments untill my left square where is 100 black color is equal with the black color of the outside work black color and there is a nice differance between other squares in 10% color changing...

Is there any reason to this kind of adjustment or not.... maybe it is a stupid try at all

Here's a link to a good article on monitor calibration and gamma: http://www.normankoren.com/makingfineprints1A.html

And here's a link QuickGamma, the free utility program he recommends for monitor calibration if you don't have a calibrator: http://www.quickgamma.de/indexen.html
