Mac Studio Display Question
« on: September 27, 2022, 03:41:53 pm »

hi I bought the Nano texture display and a Mac Studio computer.Most of my work is photo but some video. I use the Adobe 1998 RGB color space in Photoshop. When I open system preferences for the Display I get an option for photography (P3 D65 ) see attached screengrabs. Is this the correct setting? Anything different I should do?

You might want to create a Custom Preset to allow you to adjust the luminance

Your display profile is divorced from your Working Space.

The luminance is good and lighting in this room is consistent.

ASD and Retina XDR is factory calibrated, so there's no need to calibrate it with external sensor. All you have to do is to set desired brightness, or change target settings (wtpt, TRC, gamut) if needed.

Thanks, this is one of the reasons I bought it. Can you tell me which setting I should have it on? That was my original question ands nobody has been able to answer it.

Personally I use the default setting (Apple Display) which allows me to change brightness with buttons, and has white point calibrated with CIE 1964 10deg CMF, which gives neutral white and very good visual match to my NEC PA311D. Other presets use standard D65 (CIE 1931 2deg) white point which has very slight pink cast.

Thanks so much, I will give it a try!

Revisiting this thread because I have the Apple Cinema Display ( 1 year old approx ) and when I am editing photos they look good on my screen but when they go online they look a bit darker. how can I fix this? I was using the ' internet and web sRGB' setting

You can't. You cannot control how others see your images on the web (or elsewhere). Yes, saving as sRGB is a good start but you have no control over others who may or may not be using color-managed applications (without, sRGB is meaningless), if or how they calibrate their displays, etc. The best you can do is control your images on your end using color management.
