  1. Yep, they'll be in here: https://www.damiensymonds.net/actions.html
  2. If it's only a little bit, maybe just aim for 6800K and see how it looks?
  3. Hi @Lydia, You can't input a previous profile into your new calibration, and you don't need to. Once you do the new calibration it will over-ride the old one anyway. Just follow my instructions here: https://www.damiensymonds.net/calibration.html
  4. Yes, the list is up to date. I hate that you've got a touch screen. But for now, just get the calibrator and see if you can get a good result with it.
  5. Do you have a different (older) screen in the house you could try calibrating with the Spyder instead?
  6. No. The purpose of that lab print is to test the GAMUT of your screen. That is a secondary issue. It only happens after you've finished a successful calibration. Then you get the lab's soft-proofing profile to check how accurate it is. This confirms my fears, I think. A screen's "warm" setting should definitely NOT be this high. So either it's a terrible screen (vaguely possible) or your calibrator is terrible at reading it (most likely). You need to buy - or at least borrow - a newer calibrator, sorry.
  7. Oh gee, a touch screen. They make me nervous. It's likely that your calibrator is too old to properly calibrate that screen. But let's not give up right away. The first thing to do is throw this stupid thing in the bin: You must only use your own photos to confirm calibration. Are you following my calibration instructions here? https://www.damiensymonds.net/calibration.html
  8. Honestly, it doesn't matter. If it suits you, do all the Levels work first, then return to the Background layer and duplicate it then run the filter.
  9. It's done with High Pass filter. Duplicate the Background layer and change its blend mode to "Hard Light" (actually, all five modes from Overlay to Linear Light work in various ways). Then go to Filter>Other>High Pass. I estimate the look you want will be somewhere between 20 and 50.
