    Hey guys. This is one of the sites i frequent for mac news, thought i'd give these forums a try because im having some problems with color.

    I have an external monitor connected to my MacbookPro(my first mac; purchased on June 5th) and the color displays differently on the monitor than on the macbook's screen.

    The image on the monitor appears to have a blue tint.

    Now this is where it gets weird-ish.

    When i close the macbook pro, and reopen it, i see the image with that blue tint on my macbook's screen. Then it quickly filters/changes into what i see now.

    I havnt altered anything intentionally on my mac.

    It kinda sucks because i have no idea how images i make on my mac [PS and AI and such] will appear on the screens of others.

    Any advice or help you guys can give me in sorting this out?

    Try calibrating the screen(s) in Display Prefrences.

    I've been tinkering with it and i still cant get it right.

    Is there a way to check whether my mac is displaying color right?

    I have access to basically every color in photoshop when im making things, so Im not sure if Im just picking a more concentrated color or not.

    Maybe Gateway monitors just arent meant for macs ; ;.

    Try changing the colour temprature on your display yet?

    try 6500K or 5000K. Or do custom if you can.
