    Notebook monitor color profiling

    Hi all,

    Do you calibrate/profile your notebook screen?
    I found the color difference between ac mode and battery mode is rather obvious, especially when viewing portrait photos. Do you think it is a good idea to keep a separate icc profile for each power mode?

    Thanks

    Yes, sometimes (but i don't use it for color correction).

    Yes, or you could just switch off the brightness reduction (ie. in a well lit environment).

    Thanks for your input.

    Agree, as color gamut for lower end notebook screen is much smaller than sRGB space hence it may not be suitable for color editing work. Not sure about those notebook with IPS screens, are they as good as standalone LCD screen used for desktop pc or are their color gamut comparable to sRGB space?

    I think brightness control may not improve notebook screen color rendering as it only affects the backlit of the LCD screen, but it does improve the viewing pleasure if it is adjusted appropriately.

    Soft proofing is still possible in Photoshop for example, if monitor icc profile can be generated for your notebook. Of course, the quailty of soft proofing depends very much on the color gamut of the LCD screen, the color measuring device and the icc profiler.

    to calibrate your monitor is always a good idea. If possible i would calibrate notebook screen on 6500K and 160cd and for lower light 120cd.
