Pinch of Salt

I just calibrated my monitor + discovered that it was very out of whack ... sooooooo anyone whose images I've critiqued over the last day or even two (?) please take my critique with a pinch of salt, as my monitor was lying to me and please accept my apologise for any comments you felt were picky or inaccurate + which might have been due to my monitor not being calibrated properly

Hope you got your monitor sorted.........I spend far too much time calibrating mine, it becomes a silly obsession at times

Re: Pinch of Salt

Yes P-E, still using Huey ... Well I was, until I got to thinking it was useless, so I stopped bothering with it + kept ignoring its reminders to calibrate ... then Jack commented that he thought I was seeing his pic wrong, so when he queried the calibration of my monitor I thought there's every chance he's right 'cos I knew I hadn't calibrated lately ... maybe Huey does work after all

Actually I think what happened is that it kept adjusting the screen for the different lighting situations, i.e. day then night, but as it readjusted itself it wasn't being terribly accurate (being the cheap one ) so even over a fairly short time it got quite out of whack, i.e. worked its way down to a very low contrast

Anyway, looks ok now

Re: Pinch of Salt

Hi Charlotte,

I hope that all is well with you

Are you not going to spend a little bit more money and get a new monitor to go with that new computer, you know you can afford it

Take it easy
John

Re: Pinch of Salt

Hi John, yes things are good thanks, if rather hectic Oh yes indeed, made my choice of monitor long ago And it's funny that even after all the time that's passed since I first started looking at getting new pc, I've chosen the same spec as I originally had in mind Still, it's best to be sure + not rush into buying these things. As for being able to afford it ... well, that's debatable, but I'm gonna go ahead with it anyway

Re: Pinch of Salt

how do you calibrate your mouse, it controls your monitor doesn't it?

Re: Pinch of Salt

LOL Boofers, your mouse doesn't control your monitor, it just navigates it ... as for calibrating your mouse, I guess that equates to cleaning the trackball (where applicable)

Money doesn't talk ... it just goes without saying

IT has to be a guy thing, wondering now why I always sat next to the smart girls in school, all the way through.
