  • 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, 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.

    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...

    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...

    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...
