Tcgural Posted December 8, 2016 Share Posted December 8, 2016 I have been using the Spyder 5 Elite to calibrate both of my monitors and typically recalibrate them every 2 weeks. Within the last couple of weeks one of my monitors has been changing its brightness on its own to a very noticeable difference so I've been recalibrating more often to ensure that the calibration is still in effect. I just received back a bunch of prints back that I ordered and they are a lot darker and more red than what I see on my monitor. The print company said it seems to be either my gamma is incorrectly set (1.8 or 2.2) or my brightness (between 80-120 cm/d2) is off. I have been calibrating each monitor in the step by step system and for the 1st time just tried to calibrate them in the "as close as possible" two screen match and the system indicated that my ideal brightness on both monitors is 120, whereas before it was always at 80. I feel like this may be way too high since at 80 my prints were already coming back too dark. If I try to match my screen to my print I have to set my brightness to the minimum possible and the print is still slightly darker. How can I move forward and correct this?
