    Right I just had my monitor calibrated on my Penryn MBP, it was done using a spyder 2, I'm struggling to believe my eyes as I don't know if it is 'right' skin tones seem to be improved but things almost have a red tinge to it!

    Can a calibration be done wrong? It was done in a pitch black environment.

    if you read the instructions it says it should be done in light that's most going to be used, more than likely this will be in a slightly lit room probably with curtains drawn.

    Try it again you can always make a new profile

    I m using also the spyder 2 /2.2 profile on the same computer as you but I find it a little more dense and the grey is a bit more dark than I would like it...

    till now the best profile so far though

    Alas I was never the kind of person to read instructions made my own downfall I guess!

    Would it be effected if i calibrated it on a non standard colour profile? e.g. one I already made?

    Laptop screens are not designed for color critical work.

    I'm not after colour critical, just an improvement in accuracy before sending off my amatuer shots to print.
