Just used Adobe Gamma

I have just set up my monitor, I tell you what I need sunglasses, the pictures I have been viewing are very vibrant and great to look at, it don't half make the white background here stand out, it's shouting at me now.

Should imagine I will get used to the shouting and not notice it soon.

Daz doorstep challenge? I can tell you their whites would look grey next to this screen

Re: Just used Adobe Gamma

Looks like a step forward, Stu. Next you need to verify that the colours match what you see printed. If not, you should invest in a monitor calibrator. They start from around 60 ($100), maybe less.

The two cheapest are Pantone Huey and ColorVision Spyder2express.

Danny swears by the Gretag Macbeth Eye One Display 2, which is more expensive.
