Monitor Calibration

Hill Country Farm House 2I need some opinions please, I just got a new monitor calibrator(spyder4 pro) once I calibrated the monitor everything seemed to have a brownish tint. What do you think???This is a secondary image of the Hill Country Farm House that I posted a week or two back

  1. Excellent shot, Brian. And I’ll be interested in the thread of comments you receive on caibration since I’m interested in getting one myself. I’m using the standard Windows calibration and it seems fairly accurate when I have prints made at Bay Photo. But I suspect it could be better.

  2. I have a dual monitor set up and on each the treys are slightly warm, neutral color – but I would not say brown – although I do prefer warm-toned prints. I’ll check on my work computer – note I am viewing on Macintosh displays.

  3. Brian……..looked good on my MBP 15″…..I see no brown. I agree that it has a warm tone, very pleasing to the eye even though I favor cold toned black and white. Either way, your print, your image, it is your view that is the one that counts…..en theos……jim

  4. The image looks fine but it depends on what you expected. If you are referring to previously processed images and previously your monitor had a slight cyan/blue caste then they would look slightly brownish when accurately calibrated.

    Logically there are three possibilities: (1) the calibration is fine; (2) The Spyder Pro 4 is not quite as accurate as it could be (the XRite Display Pro is the most accurate colorimeter but the Spyder 4 is probably just fine); (3) your monitor is a bit old or cheap and does not display colours as accurately as it might, even after calibration.

    To be accurate you should perhaps soft proof images for sRGB before putting them on the web though I don’t do that even though I have an aRGB monitor and there could be differences. Only a small minority of people have profiled monitors so what other people see when you put up your images is anybody’s guess.

    You could try putting a printer test image up on your monitor. It should look neutral. Then again, the reason we use colorimeters is that our eyes readily adjust to different lighting conditions so even if your calibration is less than accurate your screen may still look accurate to you.
