    Greetings all,

    I'm trying to figure out how to get consistent color between Photoshop CS2 and my ACD. Basically I have the display set to the sRGB Profile since I tend to do image editing that eventually will be viewed by Windows users, and I have Photoshop CS2 set to the default North America Web/Internet settings which use the sRGB IEC61966-2.1 profile for the RGB and I get two different colors from PS and the background I want to use the color for. I'm not sure if I'm double profiling since the PS one is visibly darker.

    On a side note does anyone have the default Apple Cinema display ColorSync profile they can either email or pm a link to me or tell me if there’s any way to get the profile off the Tiger DVD. I just wanted to delete the calibrated profile and start over with a new one and ended up deleting the default which now ColorSync says "Can not calibrate the display.. The factory profile for the display could not be found".
    If someone could post the factory profile up or email it to tzieba at comcast.net I'd really appreciate it.

    Thank you,
    Tom

    Launch System Preferences.
    Click the Displays preferences pane.
    Click the Color tab.
    Click the Calibrate... button.

    As I mentioned above it displays an error "Can not calibrate the display the factory profile for the display could not be found". I assume the utility uses the base profile as a point of reference.

    I tried the system preferences and also the actual utility under applications > utilities > colorsync.

    I cant seem to find the profile on the tiger cd though I'm sure its buried on the DVD somewhere but I tried spotlight and it didn’t turn it up so I wonder if there’s a command or if someone with tiger would be willing to send me it, I think its under /library/ColorSync/Displays I don’t know the exact name but I assume it wouldn’t be under a "calibrated" name.

    Thank you,
    Tom
