Roof Colours In HD Pro

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I have anew computer and the roof colours are not as true as they were on my old computer. Acer are sending me a service Technician to have a look but I would like to save them a trip if possible. They came out the day after I purchased the new one with a few screens and found the colours were the same on all screens so it is not my new screen. It is all the latest in technology. With the very best graphics card.

 

I have added a photo This is how the colour Blue in Corrugated metal roofing looks on my new computer.

Does anyone know if my setting need changing on this computer and if so how do I do that.

Many Thanks Robynpost-620-0-41445900-1413069020_thumb.png

"True" is a subjective comodity relative to color in digital displays. Your video card has adjustments you can make, nothing is "perfct" out of the box except in terms of opinion or perhaps well calibrated measureing devices. They install adjustments for the reason that people sense color differently. My advice is to use the adjustments available to you or your technition  and when it is adjusted to your opinion of "good" then that is it. An image such as you posted looks blue to be and it will probably be seen as blue, generally to others  but only your opinion matters on your computer. Another variable is from color images made elsewhere, some variations of hue and other properties will be found to display even on the same image on different machine displays.

The blue in your Roof pic looks identical to the same colour on my Monitor in HD Pro 2015 and that would be expected as my monitors are colour matched using an iDisplay Monitor Calibration Device so my guess would be that the Brightness on you new monitor is way to high ( not unusual for new monitors) and possibly the Contrast is set incorrectly too ie too low. Gamma maybe wrong too but less likely

 

The colour in the pic will read correctly for me as it is read digitally , the problem is in how your monitor is interpreting the colour information at the moment is my guess , but 1st off turn the brightness down to 65% and contrast up to 95% to help saturate colours. then play around till you see what you like.

If you know a keen photographer, they may have a colour calibration device like mine for setting their monitor's before proofing photos , that would help or suggest Acer brings one with them to test with 

There are online test webpages and programs to download to you can use and get pretty close too , have a look here:
