    Hello,

    I recently bought an iMac 21.5" 2.7 Ghz and I'm having a hard time trying to calibrate the colors. I'm a graphic designer, and I need the right colors. Now, the screen looks too bright or too dark and it's hurting my eyes :(
    Can somebody upload his/her ICC profile and share it with me?
    I would really appreciate it!
    Thanks

    The only way you get accurate colors is to calibrate it yourself with something like this.

    That's way out of my budget. I just need some ICC profile with the right calibration.

    I'm also in the same boat as you. I'll be ordering a new iMac this week. I found this URL: http://www.tftcentral.co.uk/articles/icc_profiles.htm#a. Try the iMac 27 inch ICC profile and please let us know.

    I've heard colormunki is a good way to calibrate your screen, not sure of cost though I'm afraid. :(

    I thought they calibrate them right at the factory? I have one of them, and the screen colors look great...

    This profile that I'm attaching looks pretty nice. The best so far.
