NEC Multisync presets.

Hi There,

I am slightly confused regarding the presets on my, fairly new, NEC Multisync PA241W.

I initially worked with it in sRGB, but discovered that the colour gamut was greater in Adobe 1998. So I started using the Adobe 1998 preset. Then I looked at some stuff I had posted online with sRGB and it looked far too red.
I could do with a simple bit of advice regarding the best setup for general retouching work.

I know it's tempting to reply "RTFM". But if someone could just tell me simply what mode/preset to use i would appreciate it.

Re: NEC Multisync presets.

It looked off because your web browser wasn’t color managed I suspect. And yes RTFM, you want to calibrate the display with an instrument set to produce a match to a print next to the display (not necessarily sRGB or Adobe RGB (1998)). See:
