 Post subject: Monitor calibration?

Today I was viewing photos in my gallery from another monitor and surprised to find out all of them appear to be way too warm and as if the WB was totally wrong.

I feel kinda disappointed because I've spent so much time developping them on my own computer with a never been calibrated Dell monitor. So my questions are:

1. How can you be sure that you have a correctly calibrated monitor?

2. How can you make sure others have calibrated monitors too or is there a way to show them your photos without distorted color representations?

3. How to calibrate a monitor?

Best Regards,
Tony

Hi Tony,

I've moved your question to the Displays section. Have a look through the posts here as there are one or two threads which may help. 8)

I've been wondering about that too.
Anyone know?

Hi folks,

As grahamnp has just created a thread on much the same topic and as that thread includes a poll I'll take the opportunity to lock this one and ask that the discussion continues at Is your display calibrated? to avoid any duplication of effort.

Bob.
