  • My wired mouse's cursor stutters and skips on a fairly quality pc, even after a factory reset. I'm gonna have to trash the pc for parts if I can't figure this out as all I do is fps gaming really :(
    This happened in the middle of an apex legends session as soon as a new game had loaded and we were dropping - I switched tabs back into the game and found me view weirdly glitchy. I could see others moving around fine but I couldn't look anywhere smoothly. I had been messing around with my color settings in the control panel between games, and had also recently downloaded displayCAL from I... Source: 12 months ago
  • OLED TV display model worth it?
    You can test for this on any OLED display (including smartphones). Simply use a spectrometer or colorimeter, and an application such as displaycal. Source: 12 months ago
  • USB Huey color calibrator. It's a "USB Input device". Windows driver installed. Interfacing in .NET?
    I've discovered just before something called ( a GUI front end) that uses the command line tools of that support LOTS of calibration and spectrometer devices. Source: about 1 year ago
  • Desperately need to adjust saturation
    I assume your question about saturation refers to color management and calibration. If so, Gnome DE dedicates a whole page to this topic here at least in part backed by this project. Equally of relevance (and cross-platform) may be DisplayCal. Source: over 1 year ago
  • Official Question Thread! Ask /r/photography anything you want to know about photography or cameras! Don't be shy! Newbies welcome!
    As for the specific monitors, 100% srgb isn't particularly difficult to find these days. AdobeRGB is probably the higher benchmark for photographic applications. I like how Rtings conducts their monitor reviews (Asus review here). I don't know how much of each color space your Macbook covers but calibrating them both with the same tool/process should give you very similar results between the two. I would recommend...

  • CRG9 and HDR
    I downloaded and installed DisplayCAL from their website. You also need ArgyllCMS (it should ask to install). Source: over 1 year ago
  • Just bought a AW3423DW looks great in HDR, but the colors look washed out in SRGB. am I just used to saturated colors?
    You will learn much by reading about the monitor calibration software Source: over 1 year ago
  • Do amd drivers have feature parity with windows?
    Yep. Some desktop environments have display calibration built in otherwise something like Source: over 1 year ago
  • Do monitor calibration tools (Spyder, x-rite, etc) wear out over time?
    As I remember spectometers like the wide used 1Display Pro don't degrade over time, but the devices in form of the also widely used colormunki does this too, because it is also not a spectrometer, like all the spyder devices. This is also why the ColorChecker Display or whatever name they choose for this devices is the best bang for buck. BUT: Get the cheapest version of the device, the software is the only...

  • Dull prints
    I use to calibrate my displays. Source: over 1 year ago
  • ACER XB323QK NV review
    If you only need ICC correction, I suggest to use DisplayCAL Profile Loader to support VCGT correction for SDR. Source: almost 2 years ago
  • Monitor setup for accounting & design work
    Iv got a Dell and a BenQ display, nothing special both calibrated to sRGB using DisplayCAL Source: almost 2 years ago
  • Linux software to change and tweak color and contrast settings of display
    How are you making some tweaks currently? Do you use a colourimeter? If so, you can use DisplayCAL on Linux. Make sure your colourimeter is compatible, though. I use the DataColor Spyder 3 Pro with great success. Source: about 2 years ago
  • Spyder4Pro in new MacBook
    Sounds like it's time for you to try out DisplayCAL (which I use exclusively now anyways because it's better IMO): Source: about 2 years ago
  • Calibrating a printer with a LAB color scanner.
    So what the hell do I do with my i1Pro? Profile/calibrate displays using DisplayCAL or HCFR. Now this is very important - spectrophotometers are not buy it for life tools. Just like Pantone books, they ideally need to be replaced over time. I would NOT use my home i1Pro at my work, it's just too old. Essentially it's that floppy silicone ruler mentioned by /u/guizemen. I can get pretty darn close to 1", but I can... Source: about 2 years ago
  • Official Question Thread! Ask /r/photography anything you want to know about photography or cameras! Don't be shy! Newbies welcome!
    I frankly can't comment on the X-Rite software, but one option is to ditch that entirely and instead use DisplayCal. Source: about 2 years ago
  • iPhone 7+ after screen replacement at my shop
    Haha I work for Assurant. Got a lot of Asurion folks that switched over. No sales and I love it like that. Sorry tho I misspoke, it was something called DisplayCal that I'd come across, although I have no experience using that particular software. In my research the physical JC tool being sold on ebay seemed more straightforward. Source: over 2 years ago
  • How do I manually color calibrate my laptop screen?
    I bought a "Datacolor Spyder5 Express" for 80$ and combined with the open source (DisplayCal)[] software you can match results you get with 200$+ solutions, because the more expensive devices just come bundled with better proprietary software, the hardware is the same. Source: over 2 years ago
  • 🤦🏻‍♂️Why did we allow color gamuts to become like this?
    Assume now you create source material, you create your image, let's assume you used 8bit unsigned precision, a sRGB CCTF, sRGB/Rec.709 RGB primaries, D65 whitepoint. You have also a good display that you bought because it had 100% coverage of the gamut defined by the sRGB primaries (same as Rec.709 primaries). Your display mode is set to "sRGB", and it came from factory calibrated to the sRGB standard within a... Source: over 2 years ago
  • Monitor calibration - any alternatives to GNOME Color?
    I was using DisplayCAL before (really awesome), but it hasn't had an update since F31. Is there anything remotely like that that is still being maintained? Source: over 2 years ago
  • Official Question Thread! Ask /r/photography anything you want to know about photography or cameras! Don't be shy! Newbies welcome!
    Dodging the answer because I frankly don't know (I haven't used that particular piece of software), you might want to consider not using that software at all and instead using DisplayCal, a more capable profiling software that should take care of setting things up properly when it's done.
