Retouch question

I was wondering...on my laptop, colors of those photos are ok but when i'm watching them on normal PC with normal monitor, photos looks ugly and everything is 'yellow'. Please tell me, am i doing something wrong with retouch or my video card or monitor is broken ? (the fact is that they looks different on every computer i'm watching them)

Thanks for any help!

Re: Retouch question

you need a monitor calabrator like the eye-one or the spider. that is the only way to get correct colours.

Odd. They should be fairly consistent.

On your PC, reset your graphic card to its defaults. This is usually found under:
>Control Panel >Display >Settings tab >Advanced >usually there's a tab for your particular graphic card. Look for a reset to defaults button.

If this helps, fine. If not, do the same with your LCD display. Find the "menu" button, usually there is a "factory defaults" setting either under the main menu or under the "color" options.

Also check this. Back under the control panel, under the Settings>Advanced area, there is a "Color Management" tab. Check that there is not an erroneous profile hiding in there. Either remove any profiles in there, or ensure the one in there refers to your last calibration (sound like you don't calibrate, so there should be none in there).

You should at a minimum have consistent color, that is reasonably close. If not, you could have a hardware problem in either component.

Is everything in your monitor (not just photos) "too yellow", that is also a sign for cable problem between computer and monitor (just fixed this kind of problem today..)
