We just got a new desktop and I'm going to get calibrated. Just a quick question to those of you who are calibrated.... What did you use? AND I've noticed with the Spyder3 brand.. there is a cheaper one, and a more expensive one. The cheaper one seems to have way better reviews... Just wondering if anyone has any experience with this brand? or just recommendations in general? I know the colour is WAY off on the new monitor, and I feel totally lost in buying a calibration thingy Help!
I use the Spyder2Express
I am. it's easy and seems to be doing the trick (except I haven't figured out why my monitor is brighter than my photos, I would have thought that was factored into the calibration).
well, the brightness of my monitor isn't changed at all when I calibrate, so I think I just have a pretty bright monitor. I just need to remember that when I'm looking at my images and thinking they're "too" bright I guess.
i'm sure you can still turn down the brightness of your monitor without it affecting your calibration. What I did is adjusted my contrast and brightness and then checked calibration or re calibrated that way and it was ok.
I use Spyder3Pro only reason why I got this one and not the express one was because I wanted to be able to set up my laptop to an external monitor. Can't do that with the express. Well, I'm sure you could but you can only calibrate one monitor at a time I think with the express. Or something like that. My husband is the technical guy. lol I just repeat what he says.
