    Cintiq Color Issue...Anyone?

    Hey everyone, Im having an issue with the Cintiq 24HD the reds are crazy saturated and look awful....photoshop im okay because I use a color profile but Im not sure how to transfer it over to the whole system. Im using a Mac OSX 10.5. If anyone has experienced similar things or has a solution I would be happy to hear it. Thanks!

    Perhaps its not a cintiq issue, I guess ill try callling wacom but these are the differences....keep in mind that these are the exact same color values in photoshop, one is when Im switching over to my other monitor and I took a screenshot (half of the window is in one monitor the other half in the other) it looks like how it would look in the '' preview" app.

    Cintiq Color Issue...Anyone?


    THis next one is how its supposed to look and also how it looks in JUST photoshop (on the cintiq) and on most other monitors....very strange indeed.

    Use a colorimeter to calibrate the displays. Problem will be solved. I recommend a Gretag Macbeth one, or whoever it is that currently owns the technology.

    If you can't get a colorimeter, a distant second choice would be software calibration, one of those programs that let you eyeball it - like the Adobe Gamma applet. But a colorimeter is better.

    Aim for sRGB color space if you want your pictures show more or less right online.
