Re: Images are too bright.

It sounds like you don't have a calibration tool. It would be a good time to invest in one, even if just a consumer level one like the Spyder 3. Without that, it is a manual process. While it can be done, it can be frustrating. It is best done manually with a chart displayed full screen, no other applications open, lighting in the room set like you will use during retouch.

No, unfortunately there are no "standard" calibration profiles, as they are unique to each LCD. Someone with the same LCD could send you theirs, but it would not be 100% accurate.... maybe 90-95% at best, assuming they are both brand new. I would just fork out the $60 for the Spyder 3, or a bit more for the Pro. (all the other brands would also be a great investment)
