copying profiles between dual displays
on Jul 30, 2007 at 2:53:25 pm

Hi

I have 2 DELL 2405 flat panel diplays. I want to get them to match (duh) and i want to start by copying the color profile for the right hand one over to the left hand one

is this possible?

quad intel 2.66
nvidia ge force 7300
os 10.4.10

thanx

Well you can select the same profile for both, but that douse not mean that they will look the same.

For the best results get a external calibrator that you place on the displays to calibrate them.

thanx for reply

the issue is i cant select the same profile for both. i made one when i had just one dell, and it looks good, but when i open my monitor pref and go to color, the setting only shows up on one of the monitor panes

ie made a profile called "DELL for Bob" on my reight hand monitor. added an identical monitor on the left. opened display preferences. right hand monitor has a choice for "DELL for Bob", left hand monitor does not.

how can i get the DELL for bob to show up as a choice for my left hand monitor?

and BTW, i though flat screens were supposed to be much much more consistent than CRT's?
no?

I should just be there it always has for me.

They are but they are still not perfect. I have to flat-panels that are the exact same model and there are still color differences when every thing is set exactly the same.

Again for the best results look into a monitor calibrator like
