Can others edit my Photos
Photos OK to edit
Hi Guys,

I am hoping that some of the more experienced amongst you can help me calibrate my monitor. I know it needs doing as I was reading a thread earlier where I thought the colours in one of the photos was way too saturated, but all the replies commented on how the colours were lovely :blushing:

I'm using a Panasonic Viera 32" LCD TV as my monitor and I have a Radeon HD 5770 Graphics card for display.

I'm wondering what the best settings for the TV are (to achieve 6500K) before I begin using tools to calibrate the graphics card display afterwards. Last time I calibrated a monitor it was a Dell CRT about 10 years ago which only had a brightness and contrast control.

Many thanks for any advice you can give!

:)
 
There are 3 main kinds of LCD computer monitor - TN, PVA, and IPS. Some of the more expensive LCD HDTV screens are S-IPS type screens, the desired display type for image editing..
What LCD screen type is your Panasonic?

In any case you need a calibrating tool and it's associated software. Xrite EODIS3 i1Display Pro

which replaced this one - X-Rite i1Display 2 Color Calibrator for LCD, CRT, and Laptop Displays

and if you need to also profile a printer, scanner, projector - ColorMunki Photo - Monitor, Printer & Projector Profiler

The best settings for your device are dependent on the on the ambient light falling on it. The screen will need to be periodically re-calibrated.

I re-calibrate my image editing display every new moon, which happens about 13 times a year.

I did this a month ago and it really helps. Good luck.

Thanks for the reply KmH. The model I have is this one Play.com - Buy Panasonic Viera 32 inch TX-32LMD70A HD Ready Freeview Widescreen LCD TV online at Play.com and read reviews. Free delivery to UK and Europe! which is an IPS display.

I don't have the cash to spend on the dedicated calibration tool at the moment. Are there any other recommended softwares etc. that can help me calibrate my monitor? I have tried the inbuilt Windows 7 utility, but my gamma still seems a bit high.

Many thanks for any advice you can offer.
