ICC profile for Dell 2000FP LCD monitor

Discussion in 'Photoshop Tutorials' started by Gisle Hannemyr, Aug 24, 2004.

  1. On p. 157 in "Real World Photoshop CS", David Blatner and Bruce Fraser
    say that visual calibration of LCD screens with tools such as Adobe
    Gamma does not work (they are right).

    Instead they suggest that LCD users that doesn't want to invest in a
    colorimeter use the "factory supplied ICC profile".

    Does anyone know where I can find this for a Dell 2000FP 20" LCD?
    (I've alreday searched Google and Dell's website - and I've emailed
    Dell with no reply yet).

    Get on the phone and talk to Dell's tech support specific to monitors.
    Surely they'll have an answer for you.
    Not all monitor makers provide or create a profile though...

    Most likely, your screen is probably actually made by another company, &
    is rebadged by Dell. If you check the nameplate on the back (where the
    serial number is), it might list the name of the actual manufacturer, or
    their own model number. If you can find that out, you should be able to
    track down the manufacturers website via Google, & get a profile there.

    Please note that you'll need to reset your screen to the factory
    defaults for colour / brightness / colour-temp if you want the factory
    profile to have the best accuracy. (It still won't be very accurate, but
    it should at least be a major improvement over that useless Adobe Gamma
    gizmo.) Also, most LCDs (even if calibrated) won't give you anywhere
    near the colour/tonal accuracy of a calibrated CRT, so they aren't a
    very good choice for photographic work. I use a dual-screen setup here,
    with an LCD for text work, & a pro CRT for photography for this reason.

  5. Thanks - got it now.

    (Silly me assumed that monitors would be a category on their own.)

    no problem logic only works if you know the kind of logic the other person
    is using. I have been using Dell support pages for years!
