Default Monitor Calibration - an interesting piece of free software.

For the last couple of months I have been using a piece of free software for monitor calibration called Calibrize

Compared to other methods of calibration it is amazingly easy to use, and once downloaded and set up, it takes only a few seconds to recalibrate the screen to take account of the often changing room-lighting conditions most of us view our monitors under.

The purpose of this post is:-

1. To draw members' attention to Calibrize.

2. To ask those who are experienced in the calibration of monitors:- for something free and so easy to use how good is it?

I look forward to any replies and observations.

Peter.

Default Monitor Calibration

Peter,

Thanks for posting, I'll download it and I'll try to use it.
Did you check for any 'unwanted' stuff after installing?

regards,
David

David,

Thanks for your interest, I didn't notice anything unwanted when I downloaded it.

I'd be pleased to hear what you think when you've had a chance to try it out.

Regards,

Peter

Vic,
if I'm not wrong, your Mac should have a basic tool included. . . :)

Peter,
I did look into it and it's not for me . . . I have two monitors and the program supports only one . . . and right now they are OK, so I don't want to mess about :) . . .
Still . . . thanks for your post . . . I hope other people can use it :)

have a nice day,
David

You're right David. However, the key work there is "basic". Those work for about 90% of the people who own them. Many of my clients are interior designers and architects. The need for exact color surpasses the basic mac capabilities.

I was just interested in the calibrize's for curiosity's sake. I run the Spyder on my macs to get them calibrated.

I looked at their website, and their tool is also basic . . . they developed it for a client and put it on the net . . . I'm about to start printing photo's of the last 3,5 years . . . and I thought it would be a good idea to see how the monitors were :) . . . because it is for single monitors I would end up with two different monitors . . . and right now they match

Would be a good marketing trick . . . to sell monitors with a calibration set . . .
