AuthorSubject: Monitor Gamma for Mac   [Go to Bottom of Page]
Hakan Moberg
Posted on Wed Oct 1, 2003 9:25 AM

I have a Barco Personal Calibrator V that I'm using with a Mac G4, until now I have calibrated it with the Mac Default 1.8 Gamma, I've been using ColorMatch RGB as my profile for my images and as far as I know ColorMatch is gamma 1.8, but now I'm going to start to use Adobe RGB instead and as far as I understand it has a gamma of 2.2 so should I then calibrate my monitor to 2.2?

Another question for gamma is that I'm now doing a big job for the web, off course the web guys are using PC:s and then they're working with the standard PC gamma 2.2 and I have to deliver this in sRGB gamma 2.2 so to see what the PC guys see's do I have to calibrate my monitor to 2.2?

The options I have in CalibratorTalk 5.10 for Mac OS X is Uncorrected with a default of 2.25, I have Mac Default which I'ver been using, Manual where I can putin 2.2 myself or Gamma sRGB and that option doesn't say that it's 2.2 and it looks different than if I putin gamma 2.2 under the manual option.

I'm located in Stockholm, Sweden and I know that people here wants the standard to be Adobe RGB and a monitor calibration of 2.2, but I want to know if you guys thinks that's the way to go or if you have any other suggestions?
