Screen is disgustingly contrasty


Recommended Posts

I got a new laptop for Christmas and was super excited about it being 4k.  Fastforward a few months and I am having nothing but problems.  I can't get this thing calibrated for my life.  Everything is very contrasty and very pink/warm. I've tried changing up the white point and that didn't seem to make a difference.  I'm playing with the luminence, but I have no idea what I'm doing (doesn't seem to be making much of a difference, anyway).  Now I'm desperate because I've got a few actual client shoots this weekend.

Ah!  I was messing around in settings and went to see if I could manually calibrate and it gave me a warning saying something about a wide gamut....I remember seeing that in your tutorial.  Tried it out and HOLY CRAP!  THAT FINALLY FIXED IT!

I've been trying to edit on that damn thing for 3 months and it was like looking at one of those old school gifs that only had 128 colors! Totally editing blind. 

 

Now that I know it's wide gamut do I need to do anything special for saving for web or anything else?
