I just did the HUEY calibratuion thingy.
I made sure I selected the correct type of screen, and left the settings according to what was recommended for photos/editing, i.e., Colour Settings in the Calibration Preferences: Colour: Neutral Contrast: Medium.
The room's flourescent light was on. That was the main light source.
After calibration, I know that the screen may look a little strange, but my screen looks entirely reddish brown with a magenta tinge kinda like a sepia toning attempt gone wrong.
I opened a new photoshop page to see what an untouched BG would look like. It looks well, reddish brown with a tinge of magenta.
I tried painting the page a solid 100% colour, then used the eraser at 100% to remove a thick strip of colur to see the BG. The BG looked redish brown with a tinge of Magenta.
I tried looking at a few different photos in various threads. They all look a little muddy, with that reddish brown magenta tint but greens and blues look very much like the real thing!
You know stuff like the address bar in internet explorer? It's supposed to be quite white right? It looks reddish brown with a hint of magenta.
Did I do something wrong, or is this what it's supposed to look like?
When I checked the monitor settings after calibration, here's what I found:
Input selection: DIGITAL
Contrast: 37 (thought it was always supposed to be 100% ?)
Also, when I looked into this website featuring the Huey, I realised that the reviewer can select the 'choice' of preference after the successful calibration http://www.northlight-images.co.uk/r...tone_huey.html just follow the calibration steps till it gets to after successful calibration. On my programme, there's no such selection or choices. Also, nowhere does the wand-like thing say Huey.
Appreciate any help or opinions as I am a calibration newbie.
