monitor calibrating question

when you calibrate your monitor, does the brightness also adjust correctly or just the color. My monitor seems to be very bright, as I order pics and they are much darker than on my monitor. TIA

What are you using to calibrate with? I use the Spyder2Pro and it takes the brightness of your monitor into account.

What kind of computer do you have? I have the Macbook pro and its LED backlit so on screen everything looks bright. I have not calibrated my laptop, I think its pretty spot on with the factory settings.

I do have the X-rite EyeOne Display 2. I just have not downloaded it on the Mac yet.

I'm having similar issues - my Spyder arrived yesterday, I'll hook it up on Monday and will let you know about the monitor brightness. Wink

Not sure about what brand it is. Weird huh? My dh bought the parts and put it together so he could feel like he was smart or something like that.... Lol who knows??? Smile I know it isnt a Mac? Does that help?

Gwen, I would appreciate you letting me know how it goes iwth your monitor. Spyder2 was the one I was looking into too.
