    I think the answer is quite obvious...

    What method/equipment did you use to calibrate your monitor?

    If you have Adobe Gamma on your system, try removing the current monitor profile and then use Adobe Gamma to generate a profile first.

    My experience when switching from Adobe Gamma generated profile to a Eye-One Display generated profile was that the colours are "deep" but over brightness remains the same.
    As complexity rises, precise statements lose meaning and meaningful statements lose precision.

    I would suggest that you remove all moniter profiles and gamma correction utilities such as adobe gamma, quickgamma...etc from your startup and do a clean reboot before attempting again.

    Also, check that you did set the luminance levels and target gamma correctly.

    I tried calibrating with adobe gamma too, the result is my desktop looks washed out and the brightness is rather hard on the eyes, but my pics look damned fine out of camera....

    some calibrators have the option to leave your brightness untouched
    what u can do is remove adobe gamma, then calibrate again
    and set you brightness to 120 or 140, depending on your preference

    Hire me... $50 I do for you once, then next time u know liao.

    Hehe... for LCD, I believe you left the luminance at 140 right? Hehe... anyway after calibration, your image is washed out, check the histogram on NC or PS. If the histogram is correct means your image is over lor

    how do you remove adobe gamma? and erm, how to calibrate after removing adobe gamma....then again, although my whole desktop is washed out, my pics match the histogram pretty well, 0 black and 255 white seems accurate enough...

    Remove Adobe Gamma Loader.exe from your Startup Folder.

    Anyway I find the EyeOne Match 3.2a's recommended luminance level for LCD (140cd/m&#178 way way too bright for comfort. I am running at about 106cd/m² now. And according to the software, my Black Point is 0.1cd/m², giving me a contrast ratio of 1060:1! Unbelievable, as my monitor is only rated at 700:1. Wonder if I am missing something....
