    Hi,

    I use to edit photo all the while using window base laptop last time.

    Recently i just bought a new macbookpro 15". I like the screen much because very nice and saturated. Yesterday was my first time using mac to edit photo.
    The colour of originally took was a bit yellowish and too saturate.. i adjust it back to standard which is not yellowish and not so saturate.

    BUT.. what happen is, when i use my old pc to see the photo.
    The photo seems like too dull. No saturated at all.
    If others using normal window laptop to view my photo.. definately ppl will said that.. "this fella photo so dull"...

    Is it anyway to calibrate for it to standardize? so that.. in mac will see nice, in others will see not bad. now is too much of diff between two d.

    Thanks

    System Prefs -> Displays -> Color

    You can calibrate yourself, sure, or search for a profile someone has already made for your panel.

    If you're going for color accuracy, (especially with printing), you may want to get a print out and compare how the screen color differs from the printout.
