My first post to the forum, so hello to all you experts.
I recently bought myself a Colormunki photo, which I've used to successfully calibrate my LCD monitor and my Epson R2400, I'm really pleased with the results.
This was done on my desktop machine running XP Pro, with the latest version of the Colormunki software.
However, I have tried to do the screen calibration on my new Toshiba Laptop which unfortunately runs Vista Home SP1, big problem!
The colormunki does the job and the appearance of the desktop changes to a more subtle colour rendition, but when pictures are viewed on the
windows picture gallery they are way too bright all whites are blown out, in photoshop the same pictures are ok. Also, when the laptop is restarted
the new profile is loaded and almost immediately the screen is reset to the old windows profile, but the picture gallery is still displaying too bright.
The only way to get the picture gallery to display properly is to manually reset the display profile back to the default srgb profile.
So I finish with an uncalibrated screen.
I have read elsewhere that vista has a few issues with colour management, but I haven't heard of anybody complaining of the picture gallery
software behaving in this way.
Many thanks & Regards
