Ok here's the golden question, to what standard/settings do i need to calibrated my display? coz i have a colorvison spyder with Optical
Which Gamma? PC uses Gamma 2.2 as default wherelse Mac use 1.8
Which whitepoint? Native,D65, 6500k, etc?
Is there a diff setting for diff needs?
What is color profile?
So bottom line is is there a such thing as industry standard setting?
pls advice coz i am still confuse even after buying a Spyder

i find that Adobe Gamma not good enough for me. 1 thing is it can only calibrate the main monitor and not the secondary monitors. another thing is that after i have used that to calibrate the gamma (calibrate rgb seperately), on some pictures the some grey seems to be yellowist, some colors too dark to too bright
i use powerstrip to calibrate according to my eye, can change gamma, brightness, contrast, temp for each rgb. my eye should be not accurate but at least all the greys look grey to me. i printscreen the adobe gamma program so i know the gamma is more or less there

From my experince there i found out that there's is no such standard for calibration, i have a diffrent settings for diffrent requirenmt/clients
well my rules of thumb is
1.For website/end client/general/frontier machine my setting are Gamma 2.2 whitepoint 6500k then assign color profile sRGB, from here you can do you leveling, contrast, etc and save
2. For offset printing is kinda hard, diff company have diff setting, so is better to ask them the settings anyway usually the Gamma is 1.8, some even lower 1.2,
