Ok I have a new Iiyama 22 inch widescreen monitor and I am trying to calibrate it, this image of the aircraft coming off its airtest.

Can you tell me is it badly pixellated, dark, poor colours? etc having used a CRT previously, the hard bit is this is a sharper display so it looks a bit pixellated to me and i don't want to spend hours trying to fix what is not there.........

I have to keep going into work lol and checking it on the monitor there.

So please give me some help http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

There's detail in the shadow area under the wing, but the specular highlights have detail also. Nothing is 'blown out' or blocked up, so on my screen your latitude is good. Contrast is good also. I don't see pixelation, not even on hard edges. The only thing I see (on my uncalibrated notebook LCD monitor) is an overall blue cast.

Looks very nice on my 26" LCD, Tony.

Do you have anything similar in Ocean Grey and Dark Green? I'm not much for Photo Recon schemes.

cheers

Overall a really sharp picture on my 17in Samsung 173P+. What I do see is some grain in the sky...looks like the ISO settings were too high perhaps? Just some noise from the ICD?

LCD's are typically harsher on colors I find...you'll get used to it.

Will not everybody see this picture differently, according to their own monitor specs and monitor-callibration?

Looks like the contrast or the brightness is a bit too low.
The picture looks like it was an overall sunny day, but on my screen its somewhat dark.

Sharp as a tack here TT. 19" Samsung 997df. Foreground very crisp. Depth of field good. Contrast and brightness spot on. Subject framed well. No pixilation.

Side letter color is off-white and bottom striping depicts pure black and bright white. As does nose art. Daffadiles (sp?) are yellow as should be and the ground has a natural hue of greens and browns.

I'm at work and it looks fine on a 17" screen. If your running on a LCD screen you get the best picture at the LCD's 'natural' resolution.

I can't see anything wrong with it on my crt monitor,are you certain it's the monitor and not the photo itself,i e compression causing the pixelation.

The grass on that shot isn't too green, maybe (I think) a hint of colour cast there, and that's difficult to se with such a limited amount of colours in the picture.

I wouldn't use a picture I'd taken myself to calibrate the screen (well, I would, but along with many other pictures).

If you can print out at work (and the print looks like the monitor) you could compare the print with what you see on your own monitor.
I helped a friend calibrate his monitor a while back and we got it just right (if it's LCD it can be tricky): I did some prints at home and took a CD of the same pictures to his place, then calibrated the monitor (looking at my CD pictures) to look like my prints.

These are a few of the pictures I use for calibration, they are on the RAF site, where most of the modern colour images are of excellent quality. See how they look on your monitor.
