Hi everyone, I am having a real sod of a time trying to get my monitor calibrated. It's a samsung syncmaster. I go through the calibration at settings > displays > color but setting the contrast to 100% and the brightness to about 80%, everything looks white, even light greys. On the apple store, http://store.apple.com/uk in the left navbar, where it says 'For iPad, For iPhone, For Mac', these items should have a slightly grey background, I can see that when I look up at my monitor from about 1ft below it! However, when looking straight at it, I can see only white. The same on my website, I have a light grey repeating background, appears white! Now I could just reduce the contrast but then how do I know if I am getting a true picture i.e. what will my grey background look like on another persons monitor? What kind of settings do other people here use? Any input is very much appreciated. Thanks. Sam.
