One of my pet peeves these days is doing work on my monitor setup (2 screens side by side), then checking it out later on monitors at school, or at other people's houses and finding that the image either looks dry, or washed out.
The quality of brightness in color, and in producing contrast just seems to be abnormally good for my monitor ( my 200$ monitor better than 400$ monitors my school works with?).
I never used to have this problem with my CRT. It wasn't until I moved on to lcd that the contrast range seemed to actually push me into producing images with contrast ranges that really required a bright montior to see.
Simply put, wtf?
I've calibrated my monitor to match those at other places as closely as possible (trust me, for months I've tried to get it close to perfect), but it just always seems out of reach. I've releveled images to look better for awhile now,
(for example, when I first got my lcd, I thought these levels looked good
then I saw it at school, and said 'wtf', and recalibrated my monitor and image so it'd look proper on most people's montiors:
but I've been left a little skeptical about who or what people are seeing when I post something on the web.
am I the only one who is irritated by this, or has been trying to find a standard calibration norm that is prevailent?
