hi,

i posted this late last night, but it was buried in another thread that seems to have died off. my apologies for re-posting.

looking for advice from anyone with xp and ps7 expertise:


question about profile handling with 2 monitors. my setup is as follows:

windows xp
lacie electron blue 22 III crt on a matrox g400 card
formac gallery 17" lcd on a matrox g450 card dvi output
eye1 pro with eye1 match 2.03
photoshop 7

using 2 video cards in xp, i have the ability to assign a seperate profile to each monitor. to generate the 2 profiles, i disable one monitor in the "display properties" settings, and use eye1 match to make the profile and assign it to the currently functioning monitor. then i do the same for the other monitor. so now i have 2 monitors, each with it's own profile. i have verified this by checking in the xp "display properties" window.

my question is regarding how photoshop handles this? when i go into color settings and click on the RGB popup, at the top i see "monitor:xxx" where XXX is the name of one of the profiles. does photoshop understand that each monitor has it's own profile? does photoshop use the 2 profiles properly? or does it use the profile from the "primary monitor" as the profile for both monitors?

i don't use my lcd for color work, but i do use it as my primary monitor for everything except ps7. i'm afraid that by designating the lcd as the "primary monitor", i am forcing ps7 to use the wrong profile on the crt (because when i check the rgb color settings in ps7, the lcd profile is the one that is in the list as per the example in the above paragraph).

if i designate my crt as the "primary monitor" in windows, then the ps7 rgb popup lists the correct monitor profile for the crt (as per the example 2 paragraphs up). but, it also places the task bar on the crt (instead of the lcd where i want it), which is a pita. it also means i have to have both monitors turned on if i want to use the lcd (to access the task bar on the crt).

any insights would be greatly appreciated!
