  1. So when I use it to recalibrate, do I just do it over the top of what I have done with the Express?
  2. It must have been, I bought it used on line some years ago for $100. But my question about un installing is probably moot, since I remembered that not too long ago I had my PC restored to its factory settings so the calibrator was not even in my list of programs. I went forward and downloaded and re calibrated and what I am seeing on my screen is very closely matching the prints that I was using....as in more magenta than I want. I will be busy redoing that gallery now. And guess what! I now have an email from Spyder saying that I can upgrade to Spyder Pro for $60.00. I shouldn't do it but I am weak. If I do that, it leads me back to my original question. Do I have to delete uninstall x2 from my programs folder?
  3. I loaned my Spyder3, which worked perfectly on both PC and laptop, to a family member who lost it. So I ordered a Sypyder5Express. Since loading that my printed skin colors (from 2 labs) have magenta that my screen does not (from both screens). Reading here I saw something about uninstalling previous calibrations in two places on my computer before attempting re calibrating. I cant' find the page where you talked about that. I'm guessing that is something I should be doing? I did find restore my monitor to factory settings but my screen looks the same other than my screen is a bit brighter.
  4. Finally went full frame with my fourth camera and love it of course. But lately I hauled out my OLD D40 thinking I would slap on that lightweight 35 1.8 DX lens and have something to carry around to use like a point and shoot. Forgot that the older lenses don't have the feature to calibrate the lens and it front focuses terribly. Is there anything I can do?
  5. Who remembers that from his other website. Can someone tell me an easy way to do that or direct me to a tut? I can't even figure out what to call to google it, other than double exposure and and didn't find me what I wanted.
  6. I did notice it a long the way when I saw a lot of red when I checked for clipping in the levels panel, but I couldn't figure out how to fix it. Lowering the exposure enough made it all too dark. Back to the PSD then
  7. Thas what I was afraid of.......It says sRGB 8bcp
  8. Can you see it? Is that banding, some kind of red hot spots around her cheeks? This is 100% crop. I worry because I just found out that she is planning to print the 24x20 on metal.
  9. So here I am, continuing my stalking journey that started all the way Nikon Cafe where I think I was the only one of those old geezers who wanted to take your good advise. LOL.
