    Default GretagMacbeth Display Calibrator

    Any users using it?
    I used it to calibrated my notebook.
    Now does look ok, but is there any profile I should or able to set at my printer end?
    I wanted to know how I get better print, via now I adjust my pics via my calibrated notebook, or there is some special profile that I should be able to load into my printer end?

    Tks in advance.

    not bad. My notebook looks more pleasing, I tik I dun get so eye stress from staring too much at the LCD.

    The device changed the colour and optimise it according to the ambience lighting.
    I got it $89 from eastgear at the comex.

    The device normally used for calibrating printer is different. The difference is that a screen produces its own light whereas an external light source is required to illuminate a printed photo.

    I just bought one today. now my screen looks a bit warm, set to 'neutral' for the colours and 'medium' for the contrast.

    I wonder how it'll affect if i send pictures to Frontier labs etc. Anyone care to share what colours settings are best for what types of colour editing?
