Calibrating the monitor

On Windows, you’ll use the Adobe Gamma utility to calibrate and characterize your monitor. The resulting ICC profile uses the calibration settings to describe precisely how your monitor reproduces color. In this section, you’ll load an existing monitor profile as a starting point for calibrating your monitor.

Note

Adobe Gamma can characterize, but not calibrate, monitors used with Windows NT®. Its ability to calibrate settings in Windows 98 depends on the video card and video-driver software. In such cases, some calibration options documented here may not be available. For example, if you’re only characterizing your monitor, you’ll choose the default white point and gamma, but not the target calibration settings.
