Donald, You reduce the brightness at that stage by individually reducing each colour, not by using the brightness control. If you reduce all three colours a bit at each time you will find they will stay fairly equal in neutrality but the brightness will reduce. Geoff www.geoffmurray.com Date: Thu, 21 Mar 2002 11:07:36 -0600 From: "Donald Schiemann" <DSCHIEMANN@prodigy.net> Subject: Spyder with Photocal There has been some discussion of what setting to choose for monitor temperature when the monitor does not have individual RGB guns, and does not allow for selection of a preset of 6500. These monitors, like my Sony Multiscan G400, have a selection in the color temperature menu designated by three dots which brings up a scale from 0 to 100. If one does a proportion, 100:9300=X:6500, the calculation solves to 70. What bothers me is the later step in Photocal that calls for adjusting luminance so that the reading shown in the menu is between 85 and 95. After previous adjustment of brightness to something pleasant to the eye, changing it to reduce the reading to 95 severely dims the screen. Any comments? Donald - Turn off HTML mail features.
