I use an old (7 years, LOL) monitor that is not calibrated. My prints always come back looking pretty close to the monitor where color is concerned so I haven't given much thought to calibrating my monitor. The color on my new laptop is off. I got to digging to see if I could calibrate it by eye and while I found the brightness control (the monitor's default is with the bright turned all the way up). I couldn't find a contrast control and did some reading up. I found out that some laptops don't have the necessary drivers to adjust contrast. Bummer. I'm not against the idea of getting calibrating software and doing it right but with it missing controls how will it do its job? Can I even calibrate my laptop monitor? I don't want to bother calibrating my desktop monitor.
