Re: Border line topic: COLOR setup (panoramas, monitors calibration, ...)
- I should add that there's some freeware tools for correcting gamma
settings, and if you are publishing on the web sRGB is the standard.
Nvidia supplies a utility for their video card and you might look in
your display properties to see if your video has such an option.
Gamma calibration essentially constructs a lookup table for your video
card so for any color in the gamut it has a formula, so to speak, to
produce that color on the monitor.
Nothing beats a fresh monitor and a hardware calibration, but you can
close enough with gamma that most people wouldn't see the difference.
