|Using Adobe Gamma
|Step 4: Choose the Desired Gamma
Here you will adjust the brightness of the monitor's midtones by matching the brightness of the center square to the pattern of horizontal lines:
You may find this works better by squinting your eyes slightly to make the distinction between the horizontal lines disappear.
Deselect View Single Gamma Only, if you want to individually adjust the midtones for red, green, and blue:
In this window, you may also have an option for choosing a desired gamma:
Normally, this should be set to Macintosh (gamma 1.8) or Windows (gamma 2.2), depending on which platform you are working on. For a definition of gamma, see the "gamma"
entry in the technical guide "Glossary of color management terms."
|Note: The option for gamma selection may not be available on some Windows 95 computers depending on the video card you are using. Additionally, the option is not available in Windows NT due to its hardware protection shield that prevents Adobe Gamma from interfacing with the computer's video card.
