We've had a lot of discussions here about appropriate luminance levels in monitor profiling/calibration. I work in a fairly dim environment and have kept ratcheting down my NEC 2090uxi's luminance level to match my prints, to where I'm now at 85 cd/mē and it's a pretty fair match.
Trouble is, now my web galleries are starting to look a little washed out. It finally dawned on me that I should probably use different monitor profiles/calibrations for the two different purposes. This notion was reinforced when I poked around in Spectraview II's supplied default calibration targets recently and noticed that the "Photo Editing" target is at 140 cd/mē, while the "Print Standard" target is at 80.(!)
Happily, Spectraview II makes it extremely easy to save and recall multiple calibrations.
Do you any of you follow this approach, i.e., using different monitor calibrations for different purposes? Comments, suggestions, recommendations?
