  • NEC PA241W-BK-SV: Recommended Calibration / Setup?

    I purchased this monitor and have it attached to a Mac. I haven't calibrated it yet - the only change I've made is switch it to the default srgb mode via the display's onscreen menu. I must admit the default uncalibrated srgb mode is very good compared to a 19" crt sitting right next to it.

    The reason I purchased this monitor was for its highly rated srgb mode as I will using it for design work for Zazzle.com, which requests that work be uploaded using srgb. My previous work was done on crt monitors that were "calibrated" by eye, LOL.

    1. I am looking for suggestions as to the best setting to use in the onscreen menu prior to calibrating it (i.e., brightness, and other settings)?

    2. I have a hood coming for it, so I will likely recalibrate it after I attach the hood, but I was wondering how often should I recalibrate it - i.e., once a month?

    3. If you look under a Mac's "System Preferences: Displays: Color: Display Profile" you are allowed to change each display's color profile. Should I be setting this to "srgb" as opposed to the other choices of Adobe RGB, Generic RGB, or the monitor's own native profile?

    4. When working in Photoshop or Illustrator should I be setting my color profile to srgb?

    My work is created from a variety of sources, or combination of sources - 1200 dpi scans , digital pictures from a Canon T2i, or graphics created entirely in Illustrator.

    RGB Color Space

    In Scott Kelby's, The Photoshop Book for Digital Photographers, the author recommends changing Photoshop's default settings to Adobe RGB (1998); however, the last time I calibrated my monitor, a LaCie 22blue, those settings became the default, so should I replace them with the Adobe settings? I calibrated...

    Hi, got a Spyder2Express for a present and have calibrated my monitor.

    Calibrating a Dual Monitor Setup
    by Syd
    How do I calibrate for a dual monitor setup? Surely, in order for it to be accurate you need a profile for each monitor? Is there a way to do this? Or should I just calibrate my main monitor and forget about the other? I have a CRT which I connect up to my laptop. The laptop's colors, even though...

    Need calibration help
    by Schwartzie
    In the past i have had monitors that didnt have a profile and I calibrated with Adobe gamma and everything turned out just about dead on.

    My monitor died and I got a Viewsonic Graphics series. It comes with a profile of its own which is what photoshop lists in the adobe gamma. Now for...

    Which monitor I should trust?
    by workharder
    Hi Folks,

    I'm using Dell U2711 calibrated with Spyder color, one thing that make me confuse is because my work seems very different when I open it in different computer, but in other hands, people works still fine when I open in Dell or other monitor.

    I already happy with...
