Weird colour

Recommended Posts

Sorry, missed that - a viewsonic vx2336-1

I never had a problem with my old computer and video card.  I had to get a new pc and it sucks!

No, same screen I have had for the old PC.  I reset everything on the monitor when I connected the new pc and then I made sure that all calibrations were removed from color management before I calibrated again.  I calibrate according to your guidelines.  I never had a problem with the old pc/video card. :(    Here is the Histogram from both PS and ACR  edited with color correction and one without color changes.  Sorry they are pngs, that is how my screenshots save and no other option for them.

Ok, it will take awhile for the files to upload.  My internet is atrocious.  Thanks again.

No, that's the photo you're working on now.  I want the ones you've already printed - the ones you're comparing to verify your calibration.

Jpeg files will do - they don't even need to be very big, you can reduce them in size.

The reds in the one of the three kiddos is a little muted in the actual picture but I believe that is because of the gamut.

Yes, in the same link.

That's a really good selection of photos for calibration verification, well chosen.

So they match (except for the red stripes).

And do you like how they look?  (This question is not relevant to calibration, by the way, I'm just interested.)

Yes I do like how they look.  I just received another order and double checked them, they look fine to me.  I haven't had any complaints on my prints but I also know that most customers are happy with crappy cell phone pics so them being happy with mine does not mean anything.  When you say you saw a colour cast - what weird color is it leaning towards?  I think it leans toward magenta, others have said my photos looked green at one point.  But the two who did lean more towards warmer edits than I do.   Again, thank you for helping me out so much!  You are truly a blessing to so many people!
