Hello all,

How do we normally adjust the screen colour for photo retouching as I might have different colour setting than yours. In Macbook there is a setting for sRGB, Adobe RGB 98, or you can calibrate manually.....

When I view at my desktop pc, the photo a little bit different....

So, what setting or colour scheme do you used?

I have a Pantone Huey that I use to set the colour of my screen.

Setting the color-space (normally to adobeRGB) is the simplest task, when you are sitting in front of a screen.
But adjusting hue and contrast to a standard is a totally different task and can normally only be done with a calibrator like the one Phil mentioned.
Only for contrast there are some charts which lets you adjust it so that the darkest and the brightest steps of the charts can be differentiated on your screen. But again that does unforutnately tells you nothing about the quality of your colors :(

I understand that Adobe RGB is best for printing purposes and sRGB is best for web display. Thus, we have to keep two files for printing and web purpose...if really into details.

Adobe RGB has greater greens than sRGB....

Can we just print out a photograph and adjust the colour according to the output of the photograph.

I utilise a Spyder 2 to calibrate my monitors monthly. On CS3 I have the printer profiles of the professional printers I stay loyal to, so I work around that for accurate prints.
