    Ive just got a new monitor and the calibration is awful, how do you calibrate a monitor? do you need special equipment or can it be done be eye?

    thanks

    Can others edit my Photos:
    Photos NOT OK to edit
    If you have photoshop, you can use Adobe Gamma to calibrate it somewhat, but really the best way is to buy a profiler from Colorvision. They have a usb Spyder which is relatively cheap.
