    If you tell us first which LCD model you have, people will be better able to help you with an appropriate profile. Or you could try searching since there are many threads on this...

    cheers!

    Go to system preferences - displays - color - click on open profile and scroll down to #13 in the new window that opens. What does it say under "model"?

    That actually won't tell you anything about the model of LCD, just the graphics card...

    I'd be interested in the answer to this too - I've got a 9c81 screen.
    Thanks.

    So that's a samsung display. You can try the Samsung profiles in this thread - the ones that are for the 9c68 model should be similar, such as the one posted in post #72:

    Just keep in mind that profiles are made for specific displays and can't really be perfect for all displays of the same model. The need to be fine tuned for your display. Still, it will probably be better than the default - you just have to experiment.


    Hope this helps..

    Oh, sorry for forgetting that:

    just drag the .icc files and drop to

    MacintoshHD - library - colorsync - profiles - displays


    and then you go into system preferences - displays - color and choose the one you want from the list. Maybe put a few of them in the above folder so you can switch between them and see which one is best..
