    new iMac G5 and monitor issues
    Hey guys...Im at my wits end now and need some advice. I just got a iMac G5 the other day and got it set up. Well, the monitor is bright as hell. It looks GREAT, but for editing my images (Im a wedding photographer) it is throwing me off. I borrowed a OptiCal Spyder and tried to calibrate it, but its still to contrasty. How can I lessen the contrast on this thing? The brightness is fine, I can pull that down, but the contrast is causing everything to look washed out when I print. It looks good on the screen, but it isnt what I need it to look like. To bring down the contrast would be the thing to do. HOW?

    Any thoughts?

    Have you tried using the Display Calibrator in System preferences?

    Do you drive a Civic, Del Sol, or Integra & want more power & tighter steering feel? Click here for my inexpensive DIY Power-Steering Removal Kits.

    yeah, i did...but after I calibrate it with the Spyder, I dont want to mess with those settings. On the PC, there is a setting for contrast ONLY. the color and brightness on this machine is awesome, but the contrast is off.

    Go to System Preferences and then Displays. Click on the 'Color' tab. Try changing the profiles in the list. You can change the color and washed-out-iness with some of the profiles. It works on my PowerBook, but I don't know about an iMac. Hope it helps!
