Some help.
http://www.wikihow.com/Calibrate-Your-Monitor

I used to work in a group that sold systems for film editing and we had a sweet monitor cal system for around $10,000.00.
I assume you want something a little more affordable?
Keep in mind that LCD monitors only show 256 color levels per channel (red, green, blue).

You may get clipping in the whites or blacks.

Yup, he could have...

But he trusts US... :wow:

I know... cRaZy... but who can argue with a man who trusts the GT Tech Brain Collective!

This is a German language one. I think it also (used to?) has English and Czech.

How many levels per channel camera sensors and video cards have? :dunno:

Edit: some photo sensors do indeed output 10 or more bits, but JPEG compression turns it into 8 bits anyway.

Yes. We could also just remove the Teck Talk section of GNG too and put a Google search box in the middle of the page.:whistling:

If you are shooting jpg, the mfr made the decision on how to skew the colors and contrast. If you shoot 'RAW' you can use your RAW converter to get closer to the truth.

But you *will* have to use a colorimeter or spectrophotometer to calibrate your monitor so you have a good chance at seeing colors accurately. There was recently a good test at http://www.northlight-images.co.uk/reviews.html.
