    A Call for Standardized Monitor Setup!

    Sick of having my monitor out of whack with the rest of the human race:

    I ask for a standardized method that we CA.org patrons can use to better appreciate other's art in their intended vision.

    Now, stop me right here if there is already such a method ( but let me know the method! ) or if this is an impossibility. ( I hope not ! )

    All we need is an image of a professional caliber (if there is such a thing) that we can all base a monitor profile on. A profile that we can then switch on to create digital art and view digital art. ( You'll still want a profile for other things like printing ya' know ).

    Or perhaps with all the professionals we have here this could be made into a program?

    Just a thought, let me know if I'm a genius or idiot. We'll decide what to do from there.

    There are plenty of monitor calibration tests online. They are usually based off of a pure 255 green, 255 blue, 255 yellow and at least a 0, 50 and 100 % greyscale.

    here's a quick one:

    now setting your printer to match your monitor is the trickier thing.
