Monitor Calibration

 
  • To get the most out of viewing my products online it is important that your monitor be calibrated properly by adjusting the brightness and contrast. If either of these settings on your monitor are too high or too low you will find that the images appear darker or lighter than intended. 
  • Below you will find simple steps that will assist you in calibrating your monitor to meet at least the international RGB standards (D65, Gamma 2.2).
  • Your monitor should be on for at least 15 minutes prior to starting this calibration (30 minutes to an hour is preferred). This will allow your monitor to warm up.

 

  • Reset your monitor to the factory default settings. This is done using the buttons on the monitor itself. 
  • Set the monitor's colour temperature setting to 6500 K.
  • Using the grayscale chart below, adjust the "Brightness" setting on your monitor until you are just able to distinguish the difference between the first few dark bars on the chart.
  • Using the grayscale chart below, adjust the "Contrast" setting on your monitor until you are just able to distinguish the difference between the last few light bars on the chart.

 

  • You should now be able to see 26 separate boxes.
