Chapter 6. Correcting Your Colors >  Calibrating Your Monitor

Calibrating Your Monitor

While color corrections are something you’re likely to do every day, setting up your computer for color management is something you are likely to do when you first install Photoshop, and then at intervals later on as your needs or equipment change. This section outlines the use of the Adobe Gamma control for your monitor. Adobe Gamma works with both the Windows and Macintosh OS’s own internal color management systems to create an ICC profile for your display.

NOTE

NOTE

Adobe Gamma exists along with Mac’s ColorSync calibration located in the Monitors control panel in OS 9.x. However, if you are using Adobe Gamma with Mac OS 9.x, you should disable ColorSync. Adobe Gamma does not exist in Mac OS X. If you have a dual boot system you can create a profile in OS 9.x and copy it over to OS X. There is a monitor calibration feature in the monitor preferences panel that uses ColorSync. Also, this calibration is generally for CRT monitors. LCD monitors have fewer adjustable parameters and not all of them are suitable for image editing.
