Hardware :: Color Calibrating Monitor Using Color Meter - How To Use Color Meter And Save Color Profile

Feb 20, 2009

before switching to Mac, I used an "X-Rite Eye One Display 2" color meter device with software. You can find them most places like Amazon for about $150. The device should still work, but I can't find any software for it for the Mac. After going to the X-Rite web site, I could find no software at all for the Mac as it is only windows based.

Surely someone out there has used a color meter such as this one as they are quite popular especially for graphics artists that use professional graphic monitors. I am hoping someone can tell me how to use my color meter (USB), what software for Mac Leopard I need and how to save the color profile in the Mac OS.

Applications :: Finding Digital Color Meter Alternative?

Oct 11, 2007

I'm looking for an alternative to OS X's DigitalColor Meter under Utilities. I'm looking for a Mac equivalent to ColorPic on Windows [URL]. The drawbacks of the DigitalColor Meter are that I can't copy the HTML color code in one click of a button, and that I can't capture more than one color at a time.

MacBook :: Color Profile - How To Upload A Color Profile

Jul 13, 2009

I have a 2GHz unibody Macbook. I don't know how to figure out my color profile but I thought this a bit.

I compared my color to my friend's iMac and I noticed his colors were more bright and deep. Is there any way I can upload another color profile and make it look better?

Windows On Mac :: How Do I Get My LCD Color Profile Over To XP

May 8, 2008

I installed XP through Boot Camp and the default color profile used just looks like crap. It's really washed out with dull colors and nothing like it is with Leopard loaded. What's the best way to fix that outside of using a monitor calibrator? I tried grabbing some pre-made color profiles off here to use since some of them had a Windows version with the Mac but I went into the color profiles tab in Windows to try and install the profile and when I selected to use it it didn't seem to change anything. I've never changed the LCD color profile in Windows before. Can anyone tell me how you did it?

MacBook Pro :: Color Profile Was Really Off After Re-install?

Aug 28, 2009

This might be a stupid/silly question, but I'm going to go ahead and ask anyways since it's been bugging me all day.Brand new MBP 13", used the stock 250GB HD for a couple days but decided to get a bigger 7200RPM drive. So I know what the screen looked like with the initial factory install of OS X. Fast forward to later this afternoon after I put in the new drive. I re-installed the OS using a retail copy of Leopard instead of the bundled discs for the 13", and after everything was booted up I noticed the color profile was really off. Colors weren't as vibrant as before, and everything just looked so washed out. I noticed it right away, but did all the system updates to 10.5.8 hoping it was just a glitch. After a restart the colors was still off, and I verified via System Profile to make sure the GPU is being recognized etc.

Convinced myself to re-install this time using the discs that came with the MBP.After everything is installed, the color tones are back; much more vibrant colors and no longer looked washed out.So I guess my question is, is the retail copy of Leopard not installing the correct color profiles? If I was to do a fresh install of SL tomorrow would something similar happen (guess we'll have to wait until tomorrow I guess).

MacBook Pro :: Keeps Forgetting Color Profile

Sep 5, 2009

My MacBook Pro is connected to the LED Cinema Display. Every time it wakes from sleep, or sometimes after screensaver, it forgets the colour profile. I have to go system preferences and click display and then it automatically uses the correct profile. This happens on both the LED display and the MacBook screen. I am running Snow Leopard, and I don't think I had this issue before upgrading. I googled and found one thread on a different forum about the exact same issue, but no answer. [URL:....] Interestingly it was posted before Snow Leopard.

MacBook Pro :: Display Color Profile Is Too Saturated

Feb 20, 2012

I have an early 2011 Macbook Pro, the higher end model with Snow Leopard. Before that i had a late 2008 unibody aluminum Macbook with Leopard. As soon as i started using my 2011 MBP i noticed the screen tone was much warmer than on my 2008 Macbook. all the colors look over saturated. i tried to change the color profiles, and the calibration tool, but it still looks horrible. i will try to post a picture showing both screens side by side so you can see what has been bothering me for a whole year now!

MacBook Pro :: Wakes From Sleep/screen Saver With Different Color Profile?

Dec 26, 2009

I've been experiencing this issue off and on for about the past 10 months. I just upgraded to Snow Leopard tonight and the first time my Unibody MBP's screen saver came on and I got it back to the desktop the entire tint of the screen is intensely cooler. I have to go to Preferences>Display>Color and it automatically goes back to normal. The original "Color LCD" is highlighted, so it's not as if an entirely different profile got selected. If I click on Adobe RGB (1998) I get the exact same cool tint that I get when I unlock after the screen saver appears. Once again, it doesn't happen every time, but it does happen enough to sort of worry me.

Applications :: Color Profile Chioces In Image Capture Or Other In Mac Osx Snow Leopard?

Oct 31, 2010

I tried image capture combined with newly downloaded snowleopard drivers for my epson perfection 4490 scanner. Does image capture or other app built into snowleopard have color profile choices? I did not see any color profile options in the details view of image capture. All I see are millions or billions of color for the color options.

I use AdobeRGB & sRGB color profiles for my scans.

OS X :: MBP External Monitor Color - DVI To VGA

Apr 5, 2009

Macbook Pro last years model. I use external monitors alot for video DJing. I normally go DVI to VGA using the adaptor that came with the MBP. The other night I tried a different adaptor- DVI to composite. Now when I go back to the DVI to VGA my external screens have a yellow green tinge to them. I bought a new DVI to VGA adaptor and that didnt help. I calibrated the color profile, detected displays. and still the external screens are a yellow green color. You can still see whatever Im playing but there is definately something wrong with the color.

OS X :: Changing White (change Monitor Color)?

Dec 25, 2010

This may be of interest of more of you. I want to be able to read easier when the background is white, especially pdf files, or webpages.

I did not find a solution for certain documents, to change a background without breaking the style. I'm using the lowest brightness but I found its easier to read when I make the background gray, for example in textEdit.

ideas for pdf files ?

Mac Pro :: Seeking Monitor - Precise Color Callibration

Jul 14, 2008

Costco's website has both the HannsG HG-281DPB and Viewsonic VX2835WM monitors on for (on) sale at $499. Both are using the same panel (probably TN) and are 28" rated and 27.5" viewable. I'm not doing any gaming and not doing any color work that would require really precise color callibration. I know you get what you pay for and if these monitors are as good as my current then they'll be fine.

Hardware :: Monitor Calibration/adjusting Color Profiles?

Jan 20, 2009

I've been trying to get decent color on my Acer AL2216W display to no avail.

First, I attempted to fiddle with the brightness and contrast levels because I've been having trouble seeing really light grays. I used this as a guide so my whites, grays, and blacks looked good but then my colors were completely off.


Then, (after resetting all my changes) I downloaded a color profile from the Acer support website. Surprisingly, that profile is completely off.

Next, I tried using Mac OS X's Color Calibration utility in System Pref > Displays > Color > Calibrate. I ended up with incorrect colors & grays again.

Am I doing something wrong? Could someone please direct me about how to achieve proper colors and contrast?

Also, if any of you have an Acer AL2216W and you have made a correct color profile, please pass it along!

Hardware :: External Dell Monitor - SL Color Levels - Gamut

Mar 19, 2010

I am running a Dell S2209W on my 13" Macbook uBody, a pro without FW if you will. Anyway, not sure exactly what is bothering me but after a while, my eyes feel strained. I have calibrated it using the SL built in calibrator and while it is better than out of the box, I still feel eye strain. Anyone else using this monitor and are you happy? Any tricks to calibration levels? Or is this an issue with SL color levels, gamut, etc.? I am seriously considering going to the U2410 for height and tilt capability if nothing else.
