Video Monitor Adjustments
If you would like to calibrate your video monitors gamma or color, try by clicking the linked icon below. Be sure to follow close directions. If you feel the slightest unsure then skip this
Most graphic programs have their own simple gamma/color adjusters. This pertains usually just to the programs settings. The calibration below is more of a global adjustment for your video monitor
and if done correctly will make a definite improvement overall.
Monitors display colors by exciting phosphors to produce red, green, and blue light. Because these phosphors do not excite equally, they can produce distortions in the brightness, contrast,
and color balance of images. For an example, if a computer reads the lightness value from a photographic image and sends it directly to your monitor, the displayed color will be dimmer than
the original photograph.
To compensate for this non-linearity of phosphor excitation, you can alter the color values sent to your monitor. Use the Monitor Gamma Adjustment to adjust the values.
