Default Re: Calibrated monitor

After receiving several recommendations for it, I went with the GretagMacbeth Eye-One Display for monitor calibration on my new Samsung LCD. However, can't compare to my CRT, which was calibrated with a different, vastly inferior product.

Default Re: Seeing things differently now

This weekend I have been working on some old images that I had originally photoshop'd with my old CRT monitor. Looking at them now, it is clear that my new LCD has better resolution of shadow detail, and is brighter overall.

I had adjustment layers on many images to "brighten them up". Looking at them now on my new monitor, I see no need. The original is bright enough. Besides just better brightness, display of subtle textures in shadow areas is definitely better on the new LCD.

As I said in my original post on this thread, any technology that is 7 years newer than what it replaces should indeed blow its predecessor away. But after my further critical testing, I've found specific evidence to support my earlier overall impression.

I agree totally with what Sam said here. Unfortunately it might be a double edged sword. Those of us using LCD see all the detail but those using CRT may be thinking the image is dark and lacking in detail. I don't see an easy answer to this one.
