For Illiah-Monitor Calibration

Discussion in 'General Technical Discussion' started by Rich Gibson, Sep 4, 2005.

  1. I'm using the Parhelia dual digital monitor card and have calibrated my main 19" monitor (a Sony) with The Gretag Macbeth Eye-One Display. Is there any way to calibrate the second monitor?

    The reason is I'm working through Margulis' LAB book. Yee haa! does it do wonders with dull days and washed out images...and I'm only on chapter one. This book is worth every penny. I just modified a picture of a hazy Niagara Falls image viewed through a 300mm with a 2x TC. Wow, what a difference.

    I'd like to compare before and after but the 19" Dell (the right hand one containing the command windows) is no where near the Sony in color, since the Sony has been calibrated....Or is the only way to adjuct the colors on the Dell manually to get as close a match as I can with the calibrated Sony?

    By the way, my second image editing took about 45 seconds to perfect. The bad news is I need to go back and pop up about 200-300 images I've done over the last few years which need re-work. Thanks for the tip!

    Dear Rich,

    I'm not sure this will work with your video card; but normally all you need is to drag EyeOne screen to the second monitor before starting the process of calibration. This should work with any video card that has 2 LUTs (and 2 DACs).

    BTW, Dan is complaining that nearly nobody gave any feedback yet past page 100 :)
